A Giveaway and A Great Linky Party for Playing with Color!


It's Party time!  How would you like a chance to win the latest Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Solids Color Card?  With all 303 wonderfully tempting colors?   I'll tell ya, I felt giddier than a kid in a candy shop when I first beheld it.  I've been planning this giveaway for a while and this seems like the perfect time to do it!

That is because today Jenn, at A Quarter Inch from the Edge started a really fun linky party to celebrate the love of solid color fabrics.   Jenn is a fiend for Kona Solids, but she welcomes any fabric palette to the party.  If you enjoy playing around with color, you can link up either a photo of your own solid fabric combo or a virtual fabric combo, using a website like Play Craft with Anne's Palette Builder 2.1

The linky party doesn't end until Thursday, so go and join in the fun!  And... you'll have a chance at another giveaway there!  Jenn and Lynn at Buttons Quilts are giving away a one of a kind Kona Charm Pack!    

To enter my giveaway for the Kona Solids 303 Color Card, just leave a comment here on BuzzinBumble telling me about your own favorite color combination. 
For a second chance at winning: just leave another comment, telling me how you follow my blog.  (Please don't say "Instagram" or "Twitter", because I have not done more than dip my toe in those ponds, LOL.)  Make sure it is a separate comment so that you get two chances to win.  I'll draw the winner's comment with a random number generator one week from today: Saturday the 21st of February.  If you are a no-reply commenter and I have not been able to contact you before the drawing, I will have to redraw for a new prize winner. 
Don't be shy if you live outside the United States... The love of Quilting doesn't have any borders, even though quilts do!  

Here are some wonderful color combinations I came up with while playing with Anne's Palette Builder.  What a great way to get inspired!  Can you tell that I love the Adirondacks?

  3. What an incredible giveaway! I know I have been coveting a colour card with all 303! And you had me at the buttons (since I'm Buttons Quilts... :) ) I think my favourite of your palettes is the kayak picture. What an awesome burst of Kona Carrot!

  18. I am hooked on bright solids with dark gray and black, such as the Gravity quilt by Jaybird Quilts coming out soon. I will be making that for sure! I would love a Kona color chart and would use it a ton.

  32. My favorite combo (has been for years) is purple/blue. Sometimes I wander into teal/turquoise/green territory, and sometimes violet/magenta, but purple and blue seem to be a staple for me. I have no idea what colors I would pick in Kona, as I don't have a color card yet ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. My all time fave is purple and yellow. Even when I design annual garden beds, I tend to veer in that direction .

  62. I'd love to have this color card. I'm just beginning to use more solid colors with my batiks. I love all colors, but red seems to pop up in all my quilts and I often use black as a background. Love the way colors pop on darks.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh my, I've really been wanting one of these color cards! I love turquoise and red together, or teal and orange.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I had a thread chart years ago. Now lost. The Kona color chart sounds like a great idea. My favorite combination is whatever I'm working on :-) Your blog and Anne's Palette Builder are on my sidebar but the photos you posted here remind me to get some of mine out and look at new combinations. Thanks!

  67. Great giveaway Lara. My favourites change all the time, but at the moment it's all sugared almond colours - pink and pistachio green and soft blue. I spend so much time playing on Palette Builder it's probably unhealthy!

I have a lot of favourite colour combinations. I have teal and shades of coral in the blocks I'm sewing right now.
