Over the past few days, I have been stitching together my Kona solids. I ordered the solids from blueberrybuckle on Etsy and can I just tell you how much I love the fact that Sue put labels on each of the solids with their names? I love knowing the names of colors. I keep the paint samples for each room that we paint so that I can remember the name. I also label my plants in the garden with metal tags and labels made with my label maker. When I opened this package and saw labels on each piece, I was thrilled. The solids I am using are: Asparagus, Bright Pink, Lilac, Magenta (but it is so not magenta, it is purple), Lavender, Banana, Blush Pink (my favorite), and Maize. This is a sneak peek of the center portion of my doll quilt. It is very improvisational. The pieces are tiny. They range from 1/4″ wide to 1 1/2″ wide. After I assembled this portion of the quilt, I quilted it with variegated thread and a single layer of batting. Next, I will work on attaching it to the backing material with some circular borders, perhaps in Kona Wine. I am waiting for that material to arrive because I wasn’t quite happy with the Bright Pink I had planned. Then I hope to include some hand stitching. There is a plan in my head but I am also allowing myself the freedom to change the plan as I go!
