I NEED . . .

I need a Kona colour card. Desperately!!!!

Cherry House Quilts is having a quilt along and it uses solids only. Yes, I have become a bit addicted to quilt alongs. The patterns are free, they have variety and it allows me to have a sewing goal every week.

Anyway, I have wanted to try my hand at more 'modern' designs and this is a perfect start. I want to do it in Black and Gold; Purdue colours NOT Iowa Hawkeye colours. Unfortunately, both my LQS don't carry Kona cottons and alas, my favourite Fabric Shack is a 12 hour drive away. I can order them online from the Fabric Shack, but I am unsure of the colours using my computer screen. Any suggestions?


  1. As a Spartan, married to a Hawkeye, I'm thinking I'm wishing I would have thought of doing dueling ones for this quilt along! I already ordered my fabric though :)

  2. Yeah, I saw you posted that you had your fabric choices. I considered the gray. I figured this would be an easy way to do a collegiate quilt. Black and gold is hard to work with.
    Go Big Ten!

    I love my Kona card and use it a lot!

  5. I just realized you are in Des Moines too! I'm not always very observant, obviously ;)
