Colors of Spring

April 29, 2010

In spite of a bit of snow earlier this week, we’ve had an absolutely amazing spring here in Ottawa. My neighbour’s pink and yellow tulips are in full bloom (what a great color combination!) and my own garden is blooming with pink tulips amid my spring favorite – blue periwinkle. I think the garden is a great place to find color inspiration for your quilts, and I’m giving my favorite spring colors the nod this week.

Save 20% on selected Kona solids in beautiful shades of spring – green, blue, yellow, pink & orange. The sale runs from now until May 5th.

What to do with those beautiful colors? I might try the classic Turning Twenty or the totally modern Foreign Currency for a quick & colorful throw. Or for something a little different, I came across the following free pattern at

Simple Squares and Bars, from

Inspired by “Zen” from designer Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios, this super-simple quilt was made from Kaffe Fassett shot cottons. Why not try it with your favorite shades of spring?

    Oh no a sale! Those colours are beautiful and I love that quilt pattern. Now I’m going to have to go and spend more money at your store…let’s see how long I can resist. Blogs are evil (but your store is awesome.)

    I love Kona cottons! I just ordered my own colour card. Your selection and prices are fabulous – I’m going to have to make my first order from your store. I love shopping Canadian!
