Dreaming of Colors

I finally broke down and bought a Kona color chart from Kathy! I have been wanting one for awhile, but they seem to go out of stock so fast. As soon as I noticed she had more in stock, I grabbed one right away.

I have taken several color classes – fabric and art-specific – over the years, so I love playing with the traditional color wheel. I could just stare at all these luscious colors on this big chart for hours. I can see why Ashley brought one with her on vacation!

This color chart is so much bigger than I realized. It opens not just once,

not just twice,

but a third time.

Oh yeah, did you notice I ordered a few solids in spring colors to accompany this chart on its journey to my house?

I don’t have a big stash of solids, but I love working with them in so many different sewing projects. I usually order Bella solids from Anina’s store, but since I was ordering the color chart, I decided to try a small stash of these lovely solids.

While bumming around on my lunch hour this week, I discovered a selection of these very solids at the local Hancock Fabric store. They seemed to have a pretty good range (which didn’t completely fit in the picture above), so I should be able to stock up on a few more as needed. As needed, yah, right! I can’t wait to go back and get more, after I study my chart for awhile longer.

  1. I love color! Thanks for mentioning my store.
    I’ll be stocking Bella Color Charts as soon as they update them to include their latest colors.
    Have fun!

  2. When I first started quilting, I was all “Bah, Humbug” about solids. That lasted about five minutes! What was I thinking? Like always, I can’t wait to see what you do with all those beautiful colors, Terri!

  3. I love my Moda Bella solids color samples…it helps so much in ordering. And after attending Becky’s lecture last week on color I really want to buy a color wheel…do you have one? Have you seen any on-line that you’d recommend?

  4. Can’t wait to see what you do with this Kona cloth I also love it and have it in serveral colors. It really works up nice in my quilts. I think you will like working with it. Have fun and enjoy

  5. I hope to get more into solids this year after seeing so many wonderful modern quilts. Having a colour chart would be certainly make finding the right shade easier.
