kona color



Gorgeous, right? These big piles of beautiful color are Kona Cottons: Coral, Snow, and Ice Frappe. I came up with this combination for a project I'm working on and I think it's a fresh, modern spin on the popular color combination of red and aqua. The Coral is a bit more orange than red and the Ice Frappe is more of a pale seafoam color. Together, these colors are really quite striking.




These fabrics are for a fun project that the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild is working on. I'll share more information on this quilt in the next couple of months. I can tell you though, that my dear friend Angela Walters is going to quilt this one for me.






I absolutely cannot wait to see what Angela comes up with. I'm going to let her do whatever she wants to it, and I know it will be amazing! Check out Angela's blog Quilting Is My Therapy to see some of her incredible work.




I also want to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your kind words and condolences about the loss of my grandma this week. I appreciate it so, so much, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things soon. Even though we knew the end was near for her, it's been tough--a lot tougher than I had thought it would be. But, I truly believe that my children and I now have a new guardian angel looking over us for the rest of our days. And we were lucky to have her in our lives.

I love kona in coral...and of course snow is always a favorite. I will have to look for the Ice Frappe. I think blue is a difficult color to find just the right shade. But this looks like a good one :) So sorry to hear of your loss...
