My solids quilt top is almost done. It's been a tough one. I figured out that I've sewn 9km worth of seams for this. There are a lot of seams. And now, I'm onto the vertical seams, which I'm having to press I'm still not sure about this. I've been calling it my reefer quilt.
If you click to enlarge the photo you will notice that my dog decided to camp out on my layout this afternoon without me realizing it. And...tons of threads. Kona Cottons fray and shed. ALOT.

**the colour that looks yellow is not yellow, but a limey green with a yellow undertone. can't for the life of me adjust it on camera or in iphoto.


  1. it looks fantastic Andrea! tell did you decide on the colors?

  2. I'd say that it was worth all of the hard work. Great study of color and color combinations!

    Did you buy every color of Kona solids? How much did you buy of each color?

    Have fun ironing the seams!

  3. I love where this is going. You're doing so well on the first one that you're setting the bar high for the rest of the year!

  4. andrea that is amazing! you have worked so hard on this and it shows.

  5. Andrea, it's gorgeous, so rich! It'll be worth every thread in the end, can't wait to see the finalr eveal! Cheryl is right, you've set the bar very high!

  6. It is gorgeous. I love the movement in it.

  7. Hi Andrea, this is so interesting in solids and you should see my quilts after Tig (aka quilt inspector) checks them out when I'm not looking lol

  8. Definitely looks like a lot of work - but it will be GORGEOUS when its all said and done, I'm sure!
