Kona by Robert Kaufman, Dusty Palette
Last month at the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild meeting we were happily surprised by these gorgeous bundles of fabric from Robert Kaufman.
Our challenge is to make a name tag and a quilt. Anything goes... I'm having fun stacking, piling and rearranging all these colors. While I'm really drawn to the greens, some of the others have me puzzled. I'm challenging myself to try to use them all.
I like the idea of a simple nine patch to feature the interaction of color. The balance of warm and the cool. It's surprising how much I like some of these combinations. Like this berry, blue-gray and marigold along the top row.
And the cornflower, orange and taupe along the left of this grouping.
Oh the possibilities! My plan is to cut the squares down and use 2.5" squares. All of the centers will be the cream. Cream sashing around all the blocks would be nice too. It will give each nine patch room to breathe. What do you think? Do any of these colors catch your eye?
