My Turn to Wake Up to Kona
I have been very eager for this day to arrive. I am loving this hop so much. When Madam Samm announced this one, I thought "YES!" It was the excuse I needed to be able to make a project using all Kona Solids. When she posted the pictures of the bundles of Sunrise and Sunset, I knew I was in love with the Sunrise. Maybe because I am a morning person. But anyway. I began to get the beginning of an idea from that first day. I ordered a Kona Sunrise jelly roll and so my project began.
The first thing I did, after looking at the beauty, and of course unrolling it, was to sew all the strips together in the order they were rolled. This is the result. Then, I knew I wanted to put one small silhouette on it, but what should it be? I turned over many possibilities in my head. And settled on this:
Now this next part is lots of pictures...
I quilted the sun's rays from the center up. I quilted wisps of wind by the dandelion and a few hills near the bottom in the green grass.
Carolina blue sky.
Bound in grey.
This last picture is Sunrise Sunset, after it slid right down the rock! I hope you enjoyed my quilt. I have a couple more ideas to try with Kona jelly rolls, once I am off this fabric fast. Many many thanks to Madam Samm and Carol for this wonderful hop. I can't gush enough about what a great job they both do. Now hop on to see my fellow Kona sewists.
