Today’s Kona color of the day is Chalkboard. This is a very fitting post for me as I was an elementary teacher for several years. Call me crazy, but I love chalk and chalkboards. Yes they are messy and by the end of the day I was usually covered in chalk dust, but there is nothing more satisfying than opening a new box of chalk, or cleaning it off so that it is fresh and clean for the next day. I was very sad the year our district purchased Smart boards for our classrooms and it covered about half of my chalkboard. I’m also left-handed, which makes writing on a chalkboard a little bit more difficult than my counter parts, but I learned to adapt and perfect my skills.
I also love black and white quilts. I spent a year or more collecting fat quarter black and white prints to make a Bento Box quilt.
I’m just drawn to the classic, clean colors in this monochromatic quilt, which uses Black, White, Chalkboard, Lighthouse, Pepper, Dove, Overcast, Quicksilver, Gotham Grey and Steel.
Let us know what you would make with your Kona Chalkboard.
