W.I.P Thursday

Hey, I finally get to link up to W.I.P. Wednesday Lee's Freshly pieced blog today. I have been working on multiple projects right now. But today I am going to show this one which I'm making for my precious friend.

You can already see the rainbow of colors. I still have to make blocks from 3 more colorways.
Not yet named quilt based on a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman
I have paused this project for a while, can't wait to get back to it soon.

Linking up to Freshly pieced blog.
Happy Quilting!

Wake up to KONA Day 7 - StarBurst

Welcome to the Day 7 of Wake up to KONA blog hop. First I wanted to thank two amazing people behind this blog hop, Mdm Samm for organizing this blog hop and Carol@Justletmequilt.com for being our cheer leader.

I am really excited about this blog hop. I have been collecting different shades of purple, blues/aquas/greens etc for last couple of years. Finally decided to go with the different shades of purples/magenta.
Kona Purple 10" Squares
I was very ambitious, but only got the wall hanging done. Here is my quilt top:
StarBurst Quilt - 32inch square
I have used 4 different background colors starting from top:
  • Kona Pepper
  • Kona Charcoal
  • Kona Coal
  • Kona Steel
You can't really tell much difference between the Kona Coal and Kona Steel. I did some black/white shots to see the color value and they seemed to be the same. But Steel has a little bit blue tint to it. Kona Coal seem to match the Kona Charcoal for the transition.

My original plan was to make a lap quilt(48x 64inches). I might still continue to make more stars.
I am really excited to announce that I will be offering this as a pattern. I hope to release it sometime in mid February. If you like the pattern, what size quilt would you prefer? Leave a comment below. If you're a no-reply blogger please make sure to leave your email id below. I will choose a winner on Jan 31st.

Check out the rest of amazing Kona projects in the blog hop:


Happy Quilting!
