Are you a Kona Lover? A Kona Nerd? A Kona Badass?
If so, I need your help!
I'm on a mission to build a quilt celebrating our beloved rainbow of cotton-y goodness. Here's what you can do to help me out:
There are 303 shades of Kona. What's your favourite? Is it the name or the colour itself that sucks you in everytime? I find some words are more fun to say than others...like Grellow for example, that's a fun word. I'm asking you to think about this and then using that colour build me a block that says the name of your favourite colour. You can piece, paper piece, free piece, applique, embroider or cross stitch your Kona's name. Blocks can be any shape and pretty much how ever long they need to be to get all the letters in there- big, small, doesn't matter. No prints please.... use ONLY Kona solids in the blocks. Don't worry about squaring them up or letters being "perfect"...this isn't about perfect points, I'm an improv gal so whatever you come up with I can make it work.
Can't decide on one colour, make as many as you like! The quilt will be as big as the blocks dictate. When you're finished send me an email so I can let you know how to mail your block to me. Blocks are due in by mid August to allow me time to finish the quilt for the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild's show at the Fiber Art Festival in Amherst, NS this fall.
Feel free to grab the Kona Nerd photo above for your blog and link it back to this post so folks can see what we're doing. Maybe you could pass the word...tell your peeps, share the Kona love. The more words & colours the better!
I sure hope you'll help a quilty peep out...come on & play along, UNITE!!!!
