I am linking up with Jennifer @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge for her challenge to create your own curated FQ bundle of Kona Solids.
I am a solid fabric lover from a way back. My very first quilt that I made 23 years ago, had solid borders. I seem to add a solid fabric somewhere in my quilts. I have a small collection of Kona solids in yardage and a bucket or two of scraps as well as a giant trunk full of older Papillion solids.
My Kona collection is now mostly the blues and greys. I seem to be attracted to those mostly. Today I purchased these six Konas (more blues!) while shopping at It's Sew Time, my LQS. I just wanted to add these to my stash.

For the challenge...I had just recently purchased two pieces of printed fabric and will definitely be adding solids to whatever quilt I make with them, so I chose to use Palette Builder to give me a hand in picking just the right shades to go with the prints. Now I need to go shopping again because the only colour I have is the Iron!
I am a bit lazy at keeping my Konas tagged so that I know what colour names I have and therefore I keep buying the same colours. I am going to try and improve on that in the future.
Yes I heart Kona solids!
Hop on over to the linky and check out what everyone else is doing. Better yet, why not join in. I hear there will be a giveaway!
Hope you got a chance to do some quilting today!
