Wake Up to Kona - A Stitch in Time
|A Stitch in Time on our backyard ice rink - such an ice hog!|
When I saw this Wake Up to Kona blog hop with the Sew We Quilt gang, I was all over it! Thanks to Carol and Madame Samm for organizing another great blog hop.
For my Kona blog hop piece, I used Kona White for the background and Charcoal, Steel, Iron and Ash, as well as a myriad of scraps for the colour bars. My camera was on its last legs so the colours are a little off -- sorry!
The quilting is the style I learned from the amazing Heather Lair and uses Aurifil white #2021 with purple #1240 for accents. I just love the added layer of design and texture that this style gives a wallhanging.
The colour bars made me think of the weights in the beautiful antique grandfather clock my grandmother passed along to me. That combined with the quilting made "A Stitch in Time" as a name feel appropriate. :)
Final size: 20" by 30".
If you are in the Ottawa area, you can see this piece in person, along with Happy Canada Day, Eh! and Heathia, at Brush Strokes in Carleton Place this month. They are in the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild's first show!
Here are a few of my recent finishes that have featured Kona solids:
|Happy Canada Day, Eh!|
|One Side of All Things Equal|
|One Side of Hands Hands Fingers Toes|
