This summer my Modern Quilt Guild did the Kona Challenge. Each of us got a brights charm pack and had 2 months to complete something at least the size of a pillow. Our rules were that we could only use other solids with our charms.
Here is the quilt I was madly trying to complete at the last minute.
I didn't use a pattern on this one - although I know that Vanessa of V and Co. has one (here). I had seen this dishtowel on etsy before her pattern came out and bookmarked it. So I figured this was the perfect project to try it out.
For me it is not a challenge to work with all solids. My favorite quilts are always my solids quilts. What was challenging for me was using a charm pack. I've never used one and being limited with the shape and size was hard for me. I do love the variety of a charm pack, so I'll probably use one again.
Also challenging for me was the fact that I do not have a design wall. I laid everything out on my table, but that wasn't big enough so I had to move to the floor. I'd like to add to this quilt and I will be getting a design wall before that.
I just noticed that I made one little mistake - can you see it?
Are you in a modern quilt guild?
Did you participate in the Kona challenge?
I'll be doing a post for Robert Kaufman's blog soon about all the other quilts. I'll let you know when it's up so you can see them all!
