Come One, Come All

To see the KONA "CIRCUS" at More Stars in Comanche ! 

Get your popcorn ! Get your peanuts !
   "The Greatest Hop on Earth" 
Sew We Quilt
Just Let Me Quilt
could not have been possible without 
the two most important,
 and cutest clowns  
Cheerleaders 
there ever was !

Thank you to the lovely
 Amanda Murphy,
along with Robert Kaufman, 
and Aurifil for their sponsorship ! 
The inspiration for my Kona project came from pg.128 of Amanda Murphy's book, Color Essentials.
Her book is filled with quilt, place-mat and pillow patterns she createusing 
Sunrise and Sunset bundles from Robert Kaufman. 

        Presenting my version of           
       
Made the Comanche way, and photographed in the cattle's elephant's hay !
A Kona Sunrise fat quarter bundle with a Kona Black background were my fabric choices. 
 Black pops yummy colors like Bubble Gum, Cactus, Sour Apple, Corn Yellow and Candy Pink.  
For the piecing AND quilting I used luscious Aurifil thread.
Choosing to make Amanda's "Circus" pattern was a no-brainer for me...
because I love to sew Flying Geese and she made them my favorite way.

Yes, I too, was like so many of you..........I said, "What, a completely solid quilt !" 
NO WAY !   It's not possible !   I can't.....don't make me !
I've use Kona solids in my quilts for several years, because the fabric is so easy to work with and there are so many vibrant colors to choose from. But, I've never made an all solids quilt in my life ! 
~ However ~
 I was so very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed working with all solid fabrics. 
I have become a solids kind of girl !
    
Thank you for stopping by on your way to visit more stars of
 "The Greatest Hop on Earth "
January 20
                          More Stars in Comanche (under the Big Top)
~Sew Incredibly Crazy~

See all the Kona creations HERE on Madame Samm's Pinterest page.

OH ! WAIT !

This little KONA Birdie....
  (I know, it's not a rooster, but it has WINGS )
 told me there is to be a GIVEAWAY !
I'll tell you about it in a sec 
This is another Kona solids quilt I made for my Mother.
 She loves flowers and birds and she always had plenty of seed, water and shelter for them. 
The word was, the birds knew to go to Helen's House
She used to sit on her deck for hours watching the birds in her gardens. 
My sweet Mama doesn't get around as good as she used to, as she is 80+9 & 1/2 years old. 
A lady never says her complete age you know !
 Now she'll have this quilt to look at when she can't make it outside.
" Mom's Birds and Blooms " 

I used a tutorial from Laura Wasilowski that she did for "The Quilt Show" classroom.
It's raw edge appliqued, machine and hand embroidered, and machine quilted. 

OK, NOW....
So, if you  don't have extra Kona solids to giveaway...what's the next best thing ?
3 half yard cuts of Gingham by RB 
Leave a tweet sweet comment for a chance to enter the giveaway. 
 For a second chance, tell me how you follow More Stars in Comanche. 
I'll mail anywhere in the world and tell you who won on Thursday the 23rd.
Please be sure I can contact you if your a no-reply blogger, 
Carol has a great explanation for the "No-reply Blogger" here!  

As always, God bless you.

the "other" clown

I like all the pictures of your critters. :)

Hey Vickie, very pretty sunrise circus quilt! But, boy oh boy do I love your birds and blooms quilt. Your momma is gonna L.O.V.E. it to pieces! No feeders to fill, no weeds to pull. Absolutely beautiful! You know I follow you...you have my favourite online doggie! lol

Your circus quilt is stunning; I love the yo-yos and the quilting you did. The bird quilt is truly special and sweet!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Vickie your circus quilt is just wonderful but that little bird quilt just melted my heart. My mother loved the birds so much that even the last months of her life when she couldn't see much or walk much or even think much (she had a brain tumor) she continued to tell us to go fill up the bird feeders. We were diligent about it because we knew how much it meant to her but she couldn't see them so she told us, and told us, and told us! :) I can't figure out what the stitch is on the center of the yellow flower?? blessings, marlene

Lisa Marie said...

Both of your projects are just gorgeous! I have also used plenty of Kona, but always mixed with prints. This hop makes me think I will make an all solids quilt soon, as I have seen so many beautiful things.

Suze said...

Vickie - You have outdone yourself again! The circus quilt is exquisite. I love your photograph in the hay, too - that certainly gives the feel of the circus for sure, for sure, for sure! I adore the colors you chose. The candy pink reminds me of cotton candy. How blessed you are to still have your mother and how blessed she is to get an adorable birdie quilt. I think everyone is touched by the quilt and the gesture. Now, I am super excited about having signed up and made my deposit for a Laura Wasilowski retreat through my guild that will be this July. I can hardly wait now. It's the month after our quilt show, so we'll all be ready for a great retreat. Thanks for participating and as always great inspiration.

I really do like the black background on your circus version. But...the best was your mom's new little quilt. Not sure exactly why...was it the bright colors, the subject, the quilting, or maybe my hankering for spring? Excellent!
