Wake Up to Kona is Here!

Posted on 6 Comments

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season and is ready to begin the New Year with a  smile!

I’m so excited because today is the first day of the Wake Up to Kona blog hop featuring my Color Essentials book on Sew We Quilt!

As many of you know, Color Essentials is a part-quilting/part-color theory book; the projects explore combining colors in unique ways, all using Kona cotton precuts by Robert Kaufman and sewn in Aurifil thread on my Bernina 580!

Every day from now until the 21st, talented quilters will be showing off projects over at Sew We Quilt.  There are some really fantastic giveaways sponsored by Robert Kaufman and Aurifil!  I’ll also be showing some projects from the book every few days over here.

And to top off the blog hop, I’m be raffling off my Sunset version of City Lights from Color Essentials, with proceeds going to CCFA – the Chrohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, a non-profit dedicated to finding cures for Chrohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.  Bidding will start at $150 on the 15th and last until the end of the end of the blog hop – the 21st.  I’ll be posting a link then.

If you love color and quilts check out the projects from now until the 19th!

Happy New Year and happy sewing!
Amanda

P.S.  I’ll be going over some of  the principals of color theory that I cover in the book over on Bernina’s blog, We All Sew, later today as well.
