Today is the Day!!
I was asked by Sew Sisters to come up with a tutorial for their Kona Club Challenge. Sew Sisters is an Online/Brick and Mortar Quilt Shop located in Toronto, Canada. They have an amazing selection of quilting cottons, solids, notions and patterns, and the shipping is some of the most reasonable around, especially if you live here in the Great White North.
The Kona Club is one of the best monthly clubs online too! They send you 4 different Kona Colors in Fat Quarters or Half Yards every month. Each month they post a different inspiration photo and use it to choose the colors. It is a fabulous way to build your solids stash and see colors you may not normally use in a coordinated bundle. I am a member of the Kona Club, and my solids stash is getting pretty respectable. I used most of them in my Modern Mystery Quilt. Let the inspiration strike!
I set to work with the December 2012 palette of Burgundy, Wine, Evergreen and Amber. The Candy Dish was the brainchild of a stack of fat quarters sitting on the kitchen table, a bag of hard candies, and random comment of “let the candy season commence.”
Hop on over here to see how you too can make a lovely customized set of Candy Dishes (or Bowls, or Buckets) for yourself!
