We Love Color Blog Tour

Giveaway is closed!

Welcome!

We Love Color_400px

I was slightly overwhelmed with work when We Love Color was presented. New book due, 14 new patterns, market, still not settled after a move, etc. That kinda thing — could I really take on one more project?

Looking back on it though, I’m so honored to have been included. It’s a great group of quilters and a pretty awesome result.

For the most part, my color choices are inspired by nature, everyday life and the world around us. Whether it be the bright sunsets…

sunset

or a rainy weekend drive…

rain

or a beautiful flower amongst the weedy and mossy backyard…

lily

or spring…

fern

or just a morning walk in the park.

What is my favorite color?
Hardest. question. ever. I took a scientific approach to this. I compiled all the colors included in my next release (full of more fabulous Konas!) and added up the yardage. The most used, and therefore favorite, color is…

aqua

Aqua-1005. Not shocking if you know me. Exhibit A:

beach

My quilt.

It’s the purple one and also appears on the back cover of the book. The pattern includes instructions for multiple sizes.

It’s a very ‘me’ quilt.

New Colors!
I’ve been sewing with the new colors over the past week and I’m loving them. One new one is Poppy-1296.

Pretty accurate I’d say.

    Is the contest open to employees of Carolina Patchworks and their immediate family?

    1. Sandie’s avatar

      Back away from the fabric, Sean!

    2. emily’s avatar

      Don’t worry, Sean was not entered into the drawing. We have half the Kaufman warehouse in our basement so it’s not like he’s in need of fabric (because he sews and all… ha!)

  2. Helena Cameron’s avatar

    Love the look of this book and your quilt is beautiful. New to your blog but enjoying it. Thank you

  3. Klary de Vries’s avatar

    It would be interesting to make a quilt of the favourite colors from the participants of the We Love Color Blog Tour. But it would be amazing to win the whole bundle (or the book). Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  4. Anne Marie Johansen’s avatar

    Love your pictures, very inspirational. I really like the quilt that looks like a tunnel (dark in the middle). Would love to try and work with solid.

  5. Linda’s avatar

    Of all the different solid fabric lines, I think Kona is my favorite, and now that I see it, I think Poppy could be right up there with Orange as a favorite color! Would love to see what I could do with the book and that luscious stack of color. Thanks for the chance.

  6. Robin’s avatar

    What a great giveaway! Thanks for sharing some pictures of the new book as well– yet another to add to my wish list. :)

    I would love to win :)

  24. LJ’s avatar

    We Love Color and I love color!! :) Can’t wait to see how your quilt goes together. It’s one of those that is so different that I am unable to “see” the blocks and I wonder exactly how it’s put together. Purple is wonderful but I’d love to see lots of other color combinations, too. All these new Kona colors are so exciting and beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway.

  25. mrsmoore’s avatar

    Your quilt is fantastic, and I am so glad you could design it amidst all your other demands!

  26. Angie’s avatar

    Love your quilt! I am already picturing what colors I could do mine in.

  27. VickiT’s avatar

    Your quilt is gorgeous and a great choice of colors. I’m a huge lover of all things purple so your quilt really catches my eye. Next after purple is aqua because it reminds me of summer for some reason.

    Thank you for the chance.

  28. Laura’s avatar

    I would love a copy of the book. Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. Anita’s avatar

    Poppy is an awesome color! But it would be fun to make a quilt with all those colors in your rainy weekend drive photo.

    1. emily’s avatar

      It’s a common color palette here, eh? It’s amazing I don’t have more grey quilts. #seattlesnark #iloveitherenomatterhowgreyitisattimes

  30. Debbie’s avatar

    Your quilt is something else – so unusual and full of interest! Love the colors! Oh how I wouldn’t love that bundle!

  31. Kim’s avatar

  55. patty’s avatar

  56. Jacklynn Grimm’s avatar

    Love the purples in your quilt – my favorite color! Thanks for the give away!

  61. Jean’s avatar

    Love, love your quilt! Looks so difficult, can’t wait to see the book and learn your secrets. And that new palette — yummy!

  62. Sharon S’s avatar

    I love your quilt. I saw a sunset almost like that last night.

  63. Kris V’s avatar

    Love checking out new patterns and colorways! Thanks for the giveaway!

  64. Allegory’s avatar

    That aqua color looks divine! So in love with this book, been following it all along blogland.

  65. Lizii Bii’s avatar

    I love how you figured out your “favorite” color. . . math in action. (The teacher in me finds that really cool).

  66. LC’s avatar

    I love the Aqua too! So pretty! I’m holding out on winning a copy of this book, and I want it so bad I almost can’t wait for all the giveaways. Thanks for the chance to win!

  67. Barbara’s avatar

    I’d love to make a quilt using solids, especially the aqua you chose as your favorite. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

  68. Carol Y’s avatar

    I’ve recently become rather enamored with aqua, though don’t ask me to pick my favorite color – it’s much too hard.

  69. Claudia’s avatar

    I like them all because solids are so much fun to work into a busy quilt but prefer the red/pink tones.

  70. Sew Very Sherry’s avatar

    What fun! Solids are great to work with and your choice of purple in the book looks great without the ‘teen’ feel. Aqua is very popular now.

  71. Cheryl’s avatar

    I love all of the new colors! Thanks for the giveaway!

  72. charlotte’s avatar

    I am enjoying the blog hop and seeing all the great solids used. Makes me really want to sew something solids only. I have never done that, but there is always a first time.

  73. Lynn’s avatar

    The book looks wonderful! Your pictures are terrific. I’m an aqua color lover too. Thanks for the chance.

  74. Kathrynn’s avatar

    Your quilt is beautiful, thanks for the chance to win

  75. Kay’s avatar

    Your work is just fab. Thank you for a great giveaway. Loving the blog hop. My favourite colour is melon by the way.

  76. Jessica Tierney’s avatar

    Congrats on the new release! I love your quilt in the book. It’s gorgeous and so rich. My kids ask me all the time what my favorite color is. I can never decide. I did buy a huge pack of sharpies last week: 24 of them. I loved sorting through the colors and settling on my favorite. I imagine you have a similar experience when the new konas arrive. Heaven, I do believe! :)

    1. emily’s avatar

      Holy moly it’s jess! Blast from the past (ok, so it wasn’t *that* long ago…) Hi!

  77. Lisa E’s avatar

    Your purple quilt is beautiful. I love purple and always have good intentions to use more of it in my quilts. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  78. Cristina Schweitzer’s avatar

    I love your purple quilt and what a great design! Thanks for the chance to win!

  79. Leia’s avatar

    I am so ready to fully embrace solids – this bundle and book would sure help!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. emily’s avatar

      Embrace them with open arms. They are wonderful. So many possibilities!

  81. Peggy S’s avatar

    Love them all! Camellia Pink is my current favorite and I adore working with the new solids.

    1. emily’s avatar

      I think there’s going to be a *lot* of Camellia in one of the upcoming quilts (currently just a sketch). M helped with it’s design… which probably explains the pink…

  82. Kathy Raabe’s avatar

    The solids along with your book would be a great way to leap into solid fabric quilting. Never done one yet, but this would be a great start. Thanks so much!

  83. Ali M’s avatar

    I love how you came to your favorite color by determining most used! I hope I can have Kona Snow NOT be my most used color some day, there are so many great options!
    Great quilt, that books is on my must get list!

  84. Carolyn Venne’s avatar

    I’ve just recently developed a love of using solids, so I’d love to win this!

  85. Sharon’s avatar

  86. Irelle’s avatar

    Love your quilt. I will be adding this book to my library but hope I win it first :)

  87. Sarah M’s avatar

    Beautiful quilt! And aren’t we all just blown away by the range of colors? So glad they added that super bright yellow – not something I’d use a lot of, but a very welcome addition.

  88. MarciaW’s avatar

    Kona solids are in a great range of colors and do like that poppy red. Thanks for the giveaway as would enjoy making a solids quilt using the new colors and a design from the book. I also like your patterns.

  89. mathea’s avatar

    Aqua is one of my favourite colours too! And I love your quilt. This looks like a “must have” book :-)

  92. Meg’s avatar

    That quilt is fab! And I’m an aqua girl, too, 110%!

  93. Audrey Schaefer’s avatar

    Love your site, it’s always an inspiration. I’d LOVE a chance to win the book and the Kona fabrics. I love color, bright, intense and bold! Muted colors bore me and I tend to lose interest in that type of project. Give me color, preferably a red for the main color, and I’ll race you to the finish line!

  94. katie r’s avatar

    looks like great stuff! thanks for sharing!

  95. AmyW’s avatar

    The we love color tour has been great everyone has such beautiful stuff!

    My favorite color is blue. Thanks for sharing your quilt. Love the colors.

  98. Amy Losordo’s avatar

    Emily, your quilt is so pretty and I love how you use nature as your inspiration for colors. Nothing could be more perfect with Kona solids offered in a wide variety of colors.

  99. Pat Hersl’s avatar

    The poppy got me! I’m a coral fan. And there isn’t a room in my house where it would shine. Too many colors to love.

  100. holly wright’s avatar

    So many beautiful hues and tones ; inspiring and daunting at the same time!
    Nature is an amazing inspiration!

  101. Andrea’s avatar

    This book looks so fantastic. Plus that bundle of solids is so beautiful. Right now I’m loving greens. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  102. SewLindaAnn’s avatar

    So glad you decided to add on one more project, your design is the best! Love the picture of the crab in one of the earlier posts too.

  117. Brittany’s avatar

    I am hearing a lot about this book. It sounds wonderful.
    I feel funny because I just went to the Kona site this past weekend and looked at all of the colors. I saw several that I liked and have used and several that I had not heard of. Now I think I know why I had not heard of them.

  118. Joan Rodriguez’s avatar

    The photos you chose would inspire me too, great shots. I like your purple colored quilt. I just finnished a quilt with purple as the dominate color. I named it “Purple Slushie”. :)

  151. Carmen’s avatar

    Aqua is great — it’s kind of funny to find “your colour”! I think mine is definitely white first, but then maybe School Bus or Tangerine…Dunno why! Thanks so much for your giveaway!

  155. Julie’s avatar

    Love your inspirations! Isn’t it amazing the color combinations found in a frame of landscape? Nature never “clashes,” does it? Aqua is a very good choice – when forced to make one :) !

  156. Sarah’s avatar

    Can’t wait to see the book and the pattern for your lovely quilt! Thanks for the chance to win.

  157. Bethany C.’s avatar

    Gorgeous inspiration…fabulous quilt! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book!!

  158. Julianna’s avatar

    Aqua is not easy color in quilting. I am a bit afraid of using it (because it’s so light and every my mistake is even more visible on aqua).

  159. Kathy Ryan’s avatar

    I love your quilt. Purple and turquoise are my favorites. You pictures are also beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.
    Kathy

    This book looks amazing!! I was just adding it to my cart on Amazon. It would be even better if I could win it!!! I know just the shop to buy all my Kona—in all the colors!! Please pick me!

    I love the new colour, Poppy. We named our Australian Shepherd Poppy because she is a red Merle. But now I think it is because she pops up all over the place. Love the book and the use of solid colors.

    First of all I have to say that I love your website. I have been following you for about a year and enjoying reading your posts. Kona cotton is one of my favourite fabrics. One of my favourite quilting tools is my Kona colour card. A whole book using only Kona cotton. Be still my heart….

  202. Amy’s avatar

  204. Pat V.’s avatar

    Emily, aqua is a very nice color, but my favorite is purple. And I just love your quilt!

  205. Beulahcdot’s avatar

    I love color probably becuase I grew up in Florida and there are always flowers blooming somewhere. :D

  206. Jittina’s avatar

    I’ve never made a quilt in only solids. I would love to win the book or the fabric so I can make my own solids quilt
