Wake Up to Kona is Here!

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!

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.

  1. I had a great time using the pattern from your book…it certainly has some beautiful quilts in it!

  2. I just have to say thank you for supporting CCFA – as a Crohn's sufferer, it is much appreciated! I will be bidding on your quilt!

  3. I just love the mix of fabrics you have in each stack! Not my usual, but I think I need to learn to work with them as the quilts turn out so beautiful!

  4. All the quilts today were gorgeous Amanda. I cannot wait to see more about your book. I've been waiting for this one because I just know you'll help me learn more about using color.

  5. Your book is amazing and I have had a blast trying some new challenges from it. The blog hop has been both inspiring and fun. Everyday we've seen incredible works of art.
