I had a fun afternoon visiting Lili and Henry at Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge. They had just received a shipment of Melody Miller's Ruby Star Shining line, so I stopped by to pick up some of the amazing typewriter print. Coincidentally, my friend and typewriter-fan Amy was there at the same time so I got to see a few of her newest mini quilts! I was just planning to get the red typewriters, but then the aqua typewriters jumped onto the cutting mat and came home with me!
Since Spool of Thread carries all of the 200+ Kona cottons, they're my go-to source for solids. I added to my stash with some brights (melon, tangerine, azure, papaya & canary) and some neutrals (stone, tan, sand, natural, and a linen called Santa Fe Natural). I brought my new fabric home and mixed it with my stash to create this:
Can you guess what this collection of solids was based on?
It's the QuiltCon logo! Was anyone else trying to match the logo colours to their Kona colour card as soon as they saw it? My choices were (left to right): aqua, tangerine, cactus, grass green, caribbean, azure (I think dusty blue is a better match, but I forgot to pick it up in the shopping excitement), papaya and canary. I'm still finalizing my plans with these fabrics and I hope that come April they'll be sent out to the members of the Fab Bee, a brand new virtual quilting bee that I joined this week. I'll keep you posted!
