Fabric, Kona Cottons

April 1 – Snow- Happy April Fool’s Day

Today’s Kona color of the day is Snow. I’m sure by now that most of you are done with winter weather and snow. Growing up in the Midwest I was very familiar with snow. Sometimes it would start as early as the end of October and the flurries could fly until April or May. One year I remember it snowing on May 5th- Cinco de Mayo. The only reason I remember this is because my kids went out and built little tiny snowmen across the backyard before school, and by afternoon they had melted. Now living in the PNW, I don’t get to experience snow very often. When it does snow, it pretty much shuts everything down because we don’t have the plows or salt for the roads.

Let’s talk about Kona Snow. This is one of my go to colors for backgrounds in my quilts. I learned the hard way to always lay coordinating prints on your background fabric of choice and look at it in natural light. There is a subtle shade variation between Kona White, Bone, and Snow. I did not do this for a quilt once and I chose the wrong one. My prints were printed on a more creamy background and I went with Kona White, when I should have chosen Snow. To me it stands out like a sore thumb. Lesson learned.

Enjoy Kona Snow. It will not leave you cold and dreary like a long winter’s day. Pick up some in the shop today and let us know what you plan on making.
