Angela’s Kona Challenge

Angela is a new friend from the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild. I have mentioned her a couple of times in conjunction with those meetings. She is the one that turned me on to the New Handmade book.

Angela participated in the Kona Challenge. She agonized and really worked hard on her design. I love her quilt. It shows her hard work and came out really well.  Her agony paid off.

She wasn’t able to make this quilt from one charm pack. She bought extra fabric (don’t you think that is Robert Kaufman’s whole idea?). She played around with the pieces, drew designs, carried them around, cut and rearranged until she had something that was fabulous. It worked.

Even the back is fabulous.

I want this quilt.

  1. You are so sweet! I’m super excited that you posted about my quilt. I learned so much about myself and my creative process through the making of this quilt and I’m really happy with how it came out. And I must say, you really inspired me in many ways and I’m so lucky to have you as a friend!

    And yes, I’m exactly the type of person I think they created this challenge for. I bought LOTS of additional fabric!!! Hahaha! I’m also a solids convert now.

    1. Angela: you are too kind!
      This is one of those quilts where you really nailed it! I love it and am warning you that you had better not leave it laying around. It might mysteriously come home with me. 😉
