Kona Cotton Solids ~ 30 Quilts For 30 Years + Giveaway!

Hello my friends!!  I have something really exciting to share with you today!


Today is my stop on the incredibly inspiring Kona Cottons 30 Quilts for 30 Years blog tour! Several months ago, I was asked to participate in a celebration of 30 years of Kona Cotton Solids by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Thirty quilt designers created quilts and patterns using this huge range of solid colors. The quilt I designed is my Cosmic Delight quilt.  I altered it a bit to use multiple neutrals for the background and lattice strips and I just adore how it turned out!  (Pattern is available HERE)

Robert Kaufman put together an amazing look book with all of the quilts.  I highly suggest that you take a gander at it. So many talented designers and their quilts all in one place.  One stop shop for inspiration!!  Have a look HERE

In celebration of these 30 Years of Kona Cottons, Robert Kaufman Fabrics and I are doing a little giveaway! Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win a set of 5″ charm squares of the new 2014 Kona Cotton Solid colors, as well as a copy of my Cosmic Delight quilt pattern.

The Giveaway will be open for 24 hours, ending at 10 am on November 19th CST.  This is also open internationally! Yay!  Giveaway is now closed...winner announced shortly!

I must say I adore all of the quilts in this book, but to give you an idea of the talent, here are a couple of my favorites!
