Wake Up Kona Blog Hop - My ode to Kona - SPLASH!!


I would like to take the time to thank our wonderful sponsers and the admirable ladies behind the blog hop who have made it a success. Hats off to you girls. 

I love Kona solids. I also love precuts.

I love the fabric so much I enjoy perusing my Kona colour card for just the right solid. 

When I saw the request to join the Wake Up to Kona blog hop I could not resist. I had a Kona brights jelly roll. Why not make a dint in my stash. I also raided my Kona stash for the backing and binding.

The best thing about using pre cuts for me is that I love that when you use a pre cut there is not much waste. My quilt top was made with no waste. I was able to use up the entire jelly. Each strip made 2 blocks. I had 82 blocks for this quilt. I used 81 on the top and 1 for the label on the back for something different.

Drum roll please!!!! Introducing SPLASH!!

This quilt top reminds me of splashes of colour. I joked with one of my girlfriends that she would need a pair of sunglasses for this one. My husband agrees with me

The quilt finished at 56" Square. I used a Kona new Brights jelly roll, Kona Peacock for the backing and Kona Coal for the binding.

It was quilted using straight line quilting with Wonderfil 50wt variegated thread.


Whilst you are perusing another Kona inspiration, go and check out some of the ladies posting on this day was well.

  31. Splish Splash, what a gas! This one just jumps off my computer screen. Incredible color! I have no idea why, that that goofy old song Splish Splash I was takin a bath, is now running thru my mind, and will likely get stuck there all day. Not that your quilt has anything to do with baths??? Great job!
