Carolina Patchworks

We Love Color Blog Tour

Giveaway is closed!


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…


or a rainy weekend drive…


or a beautiful flower amongst the weedy and mossy backyard…


or spring…


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


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.

A copy of We Love Color and a bundle of all the new Kona colors. One lucky person will win! Leave a comment below to be entered.

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

    1. Sandie says:

      Back away from the fabric, Sean!

    2. emily says:

      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 says:

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

  3. 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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

    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.

  27. VickiT says:

  65. Lizii Bii says:

  68. Carol Y says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

  72. charlotte says:

    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.

  74. Kathrynn says:

  76. Jessica Tierney says:

    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 says:

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

    1. emily says:

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

  81. Peggy S says:

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

    1. emily says:

      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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

  88. MarciaW says:

    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.

  93. Audrey Schaefer says:

    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!

  99. Pat Hersl says:

    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 says:

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

    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.

    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!

  190. Barb says:

    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.

  191. Kerrie says:

    This book looks amazing! It’s already on my Amazon wish list, but how awesome would it be to win this with the Kona solids stack?

  192. Mary says:

    Wow – fantastic book and congratulations on having your on the back cover. I’d love to spend some time fingering the fabric and picking out a quilt to try in the book.

  193. Theresa says:

    Lovely quilt but then I love that deep shade of purple so I am a little biased.

    I love your poppy flower picture and the purple quilt! I can’t wait to get my hands on this book so I can check out how you made it 🙂 Thanks!

  197. Andrea Avni says:

    I’m just starting to integrate solid colors into projects as my quilting evolves, so I’m greatly looking forward to the new book. Thanks for sharing your ideas and talents on this great blog!

    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 says:

    I live your quilt! I am envisioning it in reds,blacks/grey.. Oh how I would love to win! Thank you for the chance:)

  203. Elisabetta says:

    what can I say more? thank you so MUCH for this opportunity
    I love fabrics and these solids are perfect for a rainbow quilt!

  204. Pat V. says:

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

  205. Beulahcdot says:

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

  206. Jittina says:

    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

  207. Allison C says:

    Love your quilt! I would love to finally make an all solids quilt since it has been on my to-do list for years.

  208. Katherine says:

  211. Carl says:

    Love the picture of the stacked rocks almost as much as I love Kona cottons!

  212. Alyssa says:
