I love a solids only quilt and this one is a favorite! I found it over on the Robert Kaufman website while picking more colors to add to our collection. Such a great use of the Kona Cotton Solids!

The pattern is free over on the All People Quilts website. If you haven’t been to their site, you should! They’ve got a ton of great projects that are free to download. We’ve made 2 quilts now with their patterns and they’ve both turned out super cute.

This quilt is definitely on my “Make One Day” list … along with about 50 more quilts ;)

It’s Kona week here at Lola Pink Fabrics and we’ve got 2 great dresses to show you. Both are made by one of our super, sweet customers. She’s been sewing for years and years  and absolutely raves about the Kona cotton solids.

I just love how you can take something as plain as a piece of solid fabric and turn it into something so pretty!Kona Dress - Lola Pink FabricsSo why does she love Konas so much? She loves how bold and saturated the colors are. She also loves the weight of the material saying that pleats hold their shape making Konas a dream to smock with. Kona Dress - Lola Pink Fabrics

I wish I had a fraction of this woman’s talent and skill. I keep hoping that if she comes in to the shop often enough maybe some of her skill will brush off onto me :D

I love Kona Cotton Solids from Robert Kaufman. They come in such a variety of gorgeous colors and have such a good feel to them. I’ve used solids in almost every quilt I’ve ever made or started. I’m also a huge fan of solids-only quilts. Check out these amazing quilts from Robert Kaufman’s Pinterest page

Need more inspiration?? The Modern Quilt Guild hosted a Kona Challenge last year and their Flickr Pool is filled with amazing solids quilts. Seriously amazing!

Our Robert Kaufman rep was in town and stopped by yesterday with a preview of the new Kona colors debuting at Spring Market … yummy! Also heard they might be retiring some colors (gasp!) … don’t know which ones yet but will definitely let you know in case you want to stock up ;)

Hope you’re having a great day! All Kona Cotton Solids are 20% off  now through Sunday, March 11th. A seriously good deal especially if you buy 3+ yards and save an additional 10%! Don’t wait too long, they are going fast!
