Wake up to Kona blog hop

I was so excited when I learned about a blog hop where you are asked to sew with Kona cotton. I immediately signed up and patiently waited for this day to come.

Thank you Madame Samm and Carol for this new challenge. Look who are the other hoppers for today and the whole schedule can be found HERE.

January 7
Just Let Me Quilt
Sparrow in Flight
How ART You
Desertsky Quilts

Here is the quilt I made for this occasion -"Fresh Lemonade"!

35'' x 35''
The lemon slices are raw edge appliqued with fusible web.

I am madly in love with this design- here is the top before quilting.



I did not have time to think too much about how to quilt it, this was the first idea!



Now, which one of these to sew next ? Come back in the next weeks to find out.


Hexagons are still on my mind and after many projects with lots of hexagons and months of work, why not  a small project ?

I don't like to make bias binding but this charming little piece was worth the effort.

14''

20''
These are the quilts I made in the last two years.I love Kona cotton - with it it is so easy to highlight a pattern and show off the quilting.
 


Can't wait to see all the creations made for this blog hop!
Thank you for your visit,
Geta

Let's keep in touch!
