Rock Solid Stars

June 14, 2017

The Fabric, A Book and A Giveaway

I curated a collection of my favorite solid color fabrics, The Make It Simpler Palette, for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

The collection works extremely well together as you can see in my quilt below which was finished and quilted by Janice E Petre.

Now a wonderful book, Rock Solid, compiled by Karen M. Burns of 13 designer quilts made entirely of Kona fabrics has been published.
It's a fabulous resource.


Isn't the image a wonderful staging? Martingale, the publisher included the ground in all of the book's quilts, givng a them a spatial relationship.
Question: How many colors are in this quilt?
 Answer: THIRTY-TWO

Question: How many Geese units were sewn?
 Answer: NONE  They just happen by magic!

Question: Does Anita have a special technique to make these stars?
 Answer: Yes, and it's AMAZING!

Question: Where is the pattern for this QUILT?
 Answer: In the new book ROCK SOLID from Martingale

What a generous giveaway. Definitely ultramarine for me - it's the closest you have to teal. Thanks!

I like Celestial. It's a beautiful blue that's not too purple.

Barbara said...

Ultramarine - in honor of a recently deceased friend. Teal was her favorite color.

Sammy said...

I'll choose coral as my favorite, but there are so many wonderful solids, it IS hard to choose.

Lisa said...

Pomegranate is my favorite color! Can't wait to read your book! I do love all Kona colors! Congratulations on the new book!

Gotta say I love Pepper!

TeeJay said...

My fav is seafoam--it was always the first color I used in my new crayon boxes as a kid. I paired it with copper. It was gorgeous. I love your classes on Craftsy!! Log cabin twist in homespuns ( my 1980's stash) is in the works for my husband.

Judith said...

My favourite is Berry. No, Pomegranate. No, Berry. Okay, it's Berry, at least for the next few seconds. I can see that it's time to make another Anita magic quilt.
