Giveaway time:: Kona® Cotton Color wheel

Today I get to share my greatest love. My love for color, Kona color that is.
When I first became a quilter 15 years ago, I never used solids. If I needed something to fill where a solid should be, I would use a small print or blender instead.
Now I must say that I couldnt fathom using a blender now. Back then blenders were harder to come by, and as soon as I was over my habit they seemed to have them everywhere.

I have a Giant pack of beautiful Kona® Fat Quarters in the 25 most popular prints.
Colors included are::
Colors included in the Pack:
Honey Dew, Sour Apple, Amethyst, Purple, Butter, Gold, Cornflower, Deep Blue, Carnation, Bright Pink, Maize, Corn Yellow, Robing Egg, Lagoon, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Rich Red, Tomato, Windsor, Tangerine, Earth, Jungle, Mulberry, Charcoal (or Coal) & Teal Blue

I am sure that there is someone out there who would make this beautiful pack of color a great home. Maybe add it to a quilt, or a  table runner. Whatever you think you would do with it leave me a comment about it and you just might be the winner.

you can buy it here, or Here is how you can win.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would definitely add these as sashing to some of the fun bee blocks I have coming home from across the world. I have worked with Kona before but only white and black. Solid colors would be a new adventure for me.

  36. I never use solids either. I think I need to come out of my comfort zone and start using them. I follow alot of other blogs that use solids in their HST quilts all the time. I'd like to try something like that. These colors are soooo pretty! Jenn

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just vowed to make an all solids quilt this year! Like you, I hardly ever used solids when I started, but now I see the appeal. I would make a nine patch in a diagonal setting with a wide border in red.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love Kona solids! I would use them in a new quilt I'm making for myself! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  41. There are so many possibilities with that stash of Kona's. I could use some of those in my pinwheel sampler :) Great Giveaway Teri, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh YUM! I would use the pinks and blues in the quilt I am planning for my daughter's "big girl" room, and the rest in something for ME!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am just like you used to be - afraid of solids! I need a pack like this to incorporate into a quilt. My stash is severely lacking!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am always looking for more solids but hate to spend the money to get a good variety...

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would love to enhance any project with some solids. In fact I am doing a quilt caleed charm- along that I need a couple of extra pieces for. Thanks!!

  60. I need to look thru the "Simply Solids" flickr group for inspiration, surely something I can copycat a bit in there!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've gotten really into solids of late. I'd use those awesome solids in the 7 or so baby quilts I'm making in the next few months, all for friends' impending babies.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It would be great to have that many solids on hand. I don't think I would use them all at once. There wouldn't be anything left to look at.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beautiful! I really like doing half square triangles as a way to use solids that doesn't require long pieces like sashing. So- I would probably use them to make baby/toddler quilts! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. SO pretty! I think I would make a color block quilt in solids with gray as the sashing. I've been dying to make one!

    Great giveaway! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  65. WOW... what a giveaway and ohhh, the possibilites!!! I would love to blend some of these Kona solids with my new Simply Sweet and Basic Bubble Gum bundles that I have just aquired and save some of the rich darker colors for a fall quilt and maybe, just maybe... share some with my fellow bee members.

    ReplyDelete
  88. oooh Terri believe it or not I have like NO solids I would love some

    ReplyDelete
  89. What would I do with these fabulous solids? What wouldn't I do!?!?! I kind of declared to myself that 2010 would be my year of working with solids. I can relate to what you said about the blenders and your process of coming to solids. Sounds very familiar.

    I joined a challenge to make an Amish style quilt in a liberated style (a la Gwen Marston)using solids. These fabrics would be perfect for that project.

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh, for sure - I would use them in quilts - I have been in need of some solids for a while now...

    ReplyDelete
  94. What would I do with all that fabric? I think I would lay on the floor with it covering me and have lots of photos taken because I probably would not believe I won. Then I'd serge the edges, wash it, iron it.....and then look through my stash for some fun wild fabrics to put together for a new pic nic blanket. But that is not a promise....I might just lay on the floor with it covering me without ever stitching it together....LOL

    ReplyDelete
  156. I would make a Dresden Plate Wallhanging if I won the beautiful Color Wheel Kona Cotton. Then embellish it with Floss and beads. I retired in Aug 2009 and have no Kona in my growing stash.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Solids are just one of those things I don't buy much of. It use to be all I could get was a poplin when I needed a solid. Kona now has filled that niche so nicely. I'd like to do an Amish style quilt with these and baby quilts with the rest.
