We Love Color! A Blog Tour and Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the We Love Color blog tour!

We Love Color is a collaborative quilt book with contributions from 16 designers, compiled by Susanne Woods. Our set assignment was to work with Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons.  A task I relished:

The journey for my contribution to this book started back in March 2011 (see blog post); a bowl of small Kona squares and streamers of chain pieced Half Square Triangles.

Quilted by Long Arm Quilter:  Karen Terrens ~ Quilts on Bastings

This blog tour - see all participating bloggers here -  is a scavenger hunt (the grand prize a Bounty Box of 50 Kona Fat Quarters)!  Visit every stop on the tour and name every contributor's favorite Kona color to be in the running for the grand prize.  For the purposes of the scavenger hunt my assigned "favorite" color is Sprout.   

Kona ~ Sprout:  just one of the 28 new Kona colors due for release soon.
