Finding the Positive

Wow! It’s been just over a year since I wrote anything here. I knew I needed a break from the blog as I felt I was getting a bit stale…but I didn’t actually intend to leave for this long.

So I made it my mission to start collecting as much Kona as possible. Luckily my friend Sel from Mad Quilter’s Disease had completed an AMAAAAZING original quilt using 250+ Kona solids a couple of years ago (seriously, check it out here) so I knew she had lots of Kona in her stash that she would be happy to let me raid and pay for.
