Kona Solids Challenge Quilt

Hello all!

The Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild participated in the  Kona No Prints Allowed Challenge.

Rules:
•    Kona solids only
•    Must use at least 30 of the charms/at least ½ of the charm piece
•    Up to (3) additional Kona solids can be added
•    Minimum of 120” outside perimeter
•    Due date – June meeting
•    Must be quilted and bound

Here’s what I came up with!  All pictures of the quilt are courtesy of Anna!

I used the Dusty Charm Pack as well as Kona Snow, Coal, and Ash.

I call it “Dusty Springfield”

The back got slightly askew when I was basting, which is a bummer…

I made the cross blocks by doing strip piecing and saved a couple of extras for the back.

I was inspired by this gate in April and Andy’s house from the TV show “Parks and Recreation”

Thanks for looking!  This is a judged competition – I’ll let you know who the judges pick!  In the meantime, you can view more of the guild’s challenge quilts in our flickr group!

  1. This turned out so well, Jenna! It’s gotten 4 “favorites” since I added it to the Robert Kaufman Kona Challenge pool. Neat to hear (and see) what your inspiration was for the pattern–and nice execution, it looks just like the screen!

  2. Your quilt is amazing! I love the color palette and design.

    This is beautiful! How wide are the strips that you used for chain-piecing? I’m thinking 2″ but I’m not sure… I would LOVE to make this sometime! 🙂

  4. Love this quilt! I’m starting my own as a gift for my sister, and I’ll be chronicling it on my blog!
