Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Gumdrop.
When I saw this color I was immediately reminded of the Kookaburra song, so I had to find out more about its origins. According to allnurseryrhymes.com it is an Australian children’s song and round, composed by Marion Sinclair in 1932. It refers to the Kookaburra, an Australian bird that sits in a gum tree, which is actually the eucalyptus tree. While I would not recommend eating gumdrops while I was quilting, I would recommend this fabric. It is a sweet pink that would pair well with many colors.
If you are looking for something that won’t leave you with sticky fingers you can always count on Kona Gumdrop.
