paint chips and solid fabrics

Do you remember my tutorial from a few weeks ago on how to choose solid colors for quilting by using paint chips? The lovely folks at Robert Kaufman generously sent me loads of Kona Cotton for a project I'm working on for Fat Quarterly, and I wanted to show you how using those paint chips really works well to help you design a project .

Here's Kona Curry with the paint chip Santa Monica Blvd.

Kona Butter and Deep Cowslip 2.

Kona Mustard and Bee's Wax.

And finally, Kona Stone and Toll Booth.

Since these colors are not next to each other on the Kona color chart, it would have been very tough to see how they'd work together. Using the paint chips to choose colors worked really well, and I'm very pleased with the resulting color combination that I came up with. I can't wait to see how this quilt turns out and I really can't wait to show the results to you!
