I just saw your comment over at Jaybird Quilts, but no mention here about the mass email sent out with your Kona Castle Quilt being Friday's Feature at the Fat Quarter Shop.

She is a beauty!! Are you sure you don't want to send her back to me? ;)

Gabrielle said...

These colours are so beautiful... I made the mistake of clicking the link to the Kaufmann homepage and now this bundle and the bounty of basics set of 100 are coming to my apartment. Where will I find the room! I am really excited to see them in person... big plans in store for them this summer!

Perfect colors...reminds me of the beach!

Carol T said...

It is a really pretty quilt. I am curious as to how this works: you design it, someone makes it and someone quilts it and the designer gets to keep. I think if I made it, I would want to keep it.

saralynn said...

wow this is lovely

Angie said...

Very Pretty and very very calming...makes me want to go to the beach.

Jessica said...

oooh this is beautiful!!! thanks for sharing! and how exciting that this will be hanging at the Quilt Market! awesome! :)

Kirsten N said...

Gorgeous shades of colour!

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

Absolutely fabulous. Wish I was able to go to the Market to see it in person. I will tell my aunt Joan who is going :D

Jen said...

It's beautiful!
I have a question....this pictures of this quilt...has it been washed? Sometimes I see pictures of quilts on peoples blogs and they are super crinkly and sometimes they aren't. This one doesn't look as crinkly as my quilts turn out. This is very pretty though. So what's the etiquette? If I make a quilt for someone, should I wash it first or not? If this one isn't washed, is it because it's going to market?

Maria said...

Love Escapade in solids! So pretty! <3

Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

Yummy, calming colors. Kona Cotton really are fabulous, aren't they? I want to hug this pretty little quilt and whisper sweet nothings to it, too. Even more, lie out in yard (in the shade for me) and take a little snooze in the breeze.

amylouwho said...

My favorite colors and an awesome design!! Wish I were coming to market.

Chris {frecklemama} said...

Gorgeous! Colors, design, execution - all of it. Well done. Major awesomesauce.

Jeff said...

This is so pretty!
I can't tell for sure - was this machine or hand-quilted?

I too am curious about the washing? Maybe this wasn't washed since it's going to Market?

Angela O. said...

I've been drooling over this since it popped up on Fat Quarter Shop! I can't wait to get my hands on this kit. I LOVE this quilt!

I've been drooling over this quilt since it first popped up on Fat Quarter Shop! I LOVE this quilt!

equilter said...

Who wouldn't want to go to Quilt Market!? Color, fabric, fun, ideas, and so much more. One day maybe.............

Jlmawyer said...

? I was so sad that the kit has already sold out! I was trying to figure out what to purchase and am a little confused. For the bed size - it says 25 Fat Quarters and on the Robert Kaufman fabric shop page the Poseidon colorstory only has 21 pieces in it? Do I just buy 4 separate pieces in the colors that I like? I'm not a very experienced quilter but this is just so beautiful, I really want to make it!

What color did you use for the sashing between the columns?
