Wake up to Kona Hop

 
Hello, Sunrise!!!
 

There is nothing like a beautiful bunch a Kona fabric,
 Aurifil thread, Amanda Murphy's book
And a blog hop to get the creative juices flowing.
Thanks again to our lovely sponsors!!
After, drooling (shh, don't tell anyone)
over Amanda's amazing
designs, I decided to try this...


 
I made one pillow and it was lonely so....
I made another.


 
The pattern was from Amanda Murphy's
Color Essentials book and I couldn't be happier with them. 
I used some geometric quilting.
It was a lot of twisting the fabric
but it worked so well with Amanda's
Designs.




Well, what do you do with a lot of extra fabric?
You make another project


 
It was my own design. 
A Little Sunshine!

 
 
 
 
 


I used Aurifil 12 wt. in my sewing machine to outline the star
 and I loved the results.  I found a little tutorial here.



Thanks to Carol who is always an amazing cheerleader
and to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt  for everything that she does *wink*

  32. I adore the geometric quilting on the pillows. It was nice of you to make the lonely pillow a mate. They are wonderful. The colors are amazing. I like the pop of pink. Your star quilt is amazing. The units in the star look very small. It's difficult to tell from a photograph, yet they look very tiny. Your quilting is great on it, too. Thanks for participating and as always being a great inspiration.
