The Kona Challenge!

Jenn over at A Quarter Inch From The Edge gets full credit for this idea but I thought I would copy her. She made a list of all the Kona colors including the newest ones and crossed off each project she has made with them. I did this today while cross-referencing all of my purchases from Mad About Patchwork. It's been a while for some of them but I think I did a pretty good job with my listing. Have a look at it and tell me what you think here. Clearly I am using way too much Chartreuse and Bahama Blue because I stopped adding to those lists as they got too full.

In my reminiscing and sorting, I realized that there were a couple of quilts that although finished, were never posted. I think it may be because I finished them before I started the blog but nonetheless should be included.

This first one is baby HSTs (half-square triangles). I think it's actually the only HST quilt I have done. Crazy, eh? It was a quilt for a prego co-worker. I've been feeling HSTs again though so I may attempt something else soon.

And here's one that I made for my mom a couple of Christmases ago. I call it Fall Colors. It matches my mom and her house and also managed to tick off quite a few colors that I wouldn't normally use. This was before I learned to Free-motion quilt so it's looking a bit saggy - please excuse my early lack of skills. I actually don't even remember how this was quilted - maybe just in the ditch between squares?


  1. The HST quilt is great... Could have been made today. I see Jenn got you on the Kona craze bandwagon...

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I had a lot of fun making that Kona list (dorky as that is!) and it's fun to see others making use of it. I have a weakness for Chartreuse & Bahama Blue... they're on my go to list along with Ash & Robin Egg!

  3. oh dear, this creating a list and marking it off is calling to me. I may have to follow suit! Great first quilts :)
