During March, Amy from Amy’s Creative Side hosts a daily Instagram prompt challenge called #IGQuiltFest. One of the prompts was to post your Current WIP (work in progress), and I shared a photo a my initial fabric pull for my next quilt design, Meringue.
From left to right: Kona Cotton in Brown, Spice, Amber, Ochre, Mustard, and Oyster. The more I looked at my photograph, the more I thought that there might be something better than Amber to use. It read as too close in value to Ochre to me. Thankfully, Amy from Sewtopia was able to confirm for me that Kona Gold was just a bit darker than Amber, giving me the confidence to place an updated order.
Honestly, the hardest part about these subtle color selections is that even though I have my Kona Cotton color card cut apart, the swatches are small and the dye lot variation can mean that it’s tough to get all the fabrics right with a first order.
I just received the Kona Cotton in Gold, and I’m really happy with the fabric selections now! From darkest to lightest: Kona Cotton in Brown, Spice, Gold, Ochre, Mustard, and Oyster. Oh, am I going to have fun cutting into these yummy fabrics this week!
I am hoping that the fabric pull will help make my sample quilt look just like the toasted tips that get created on the top of a meringue pie. I personally love chocolate meringue pie; what’s your favorite?!
