A few weeks ago, I took the plunge and cut up a Robert Kaufman Kona solids color card and an Aurifil color card! Kitty from Night Quilter joined me on the adventure of cutting up an Aurifil color card, and today you can find our joint tutorial for cutting the Aurifil color card and ideas for how to use it on the Auribuzz blog!
You might notice in the picture above that my secret weapon for confidence was to first have two color cards: one to remain whole, and the other to cut apart!
There are a lot of different tutorials available online for ideas for how to cut and store your Kona Color chips. I opted to purchase adhesive magnetic sheets that I cut apart and put on the back of each chip. And as you can see in the photo above, the color chips completely fill the 14 x 30 magnetic board I purchased and hung on the wall behind my sewing machine.
The big question you might be thinking is why would I want to cut my card? It is so much easier to see how the colors interact together by allowing you to group the chips together, like in the color chip palette I created above, which I challenged myself to make in under 5 minutes using browns.
