Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Natural.
Have you ever had that skill that was hard to learn at first, but then as you practiced and got really good at it, that it began to feel like second nature, like it was a natural skill that was there all along? I have. Many times over. I feel that way about quilting. I could also be because I’ve been quilting for more than 35 years. I’m not perfect at it by any means, but keeping a ¼” seam and binding, which was once hard, seems a natural to me now. People have said that the same thing happens when free motion quilting (FMQ). I’m sure if I practiced it enough, it would become like second nature to me, just like learning cursive handwriting.
But, I have limited time to put into the FMQ and I’m better at it on my domestic machine than the long-arm, so I use my computerized component to assist me with the long-arming. It’s also helpful with my ADD and impatience.
I do believe this color fabric would make an excellent quilt make with either all neutrals, or as a background fabric. Let’s see…..
Neutrals are just natural. Try any of these neutrals: snow, ivory, cream, eggshell, oyster, bone, putty, sand, champagne, parchment or khaki for your next quilt.
