30 Quilts For 30 Years ~ Kona Cottons and Giveaway!
Today is my stop on the very inspiring Kona Cottons 30 Quilts for 30 Years blog tour! Several months ago, I was asked to participate in a celebration of 30 years of Kona Cotton Solids by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Thirty quilt designers created quilts and patterns using this huge range of solid colors. The quilt I designed was my Spectrum quilt (digital and hardcopy patterns available here).
Robert Kaufman Fabrics put all 30 of these quilts in one place - their 30 Quilts for 30 Years Lookbook! I know sometimes it can be hard to visualize a quilt or design in solids. Way back when I started quilting, I knew I wanted to work with solids, but I wasn't really sure what colors to use, what manufacturer of fabrics to select, what designs would look good to solids... Now I can fully admit I was really over thinking it! Solid fabrics let your design standout and shine. As I was flipping through the lookbook, I once again fell in love with simple designs...
And two color quilts.

Apparently I also have a thing for quilts draped on beds outdoors!
