Fabric, Kona Cottons

August 25th – Malibu Beach

Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Malibu. Malibu is a beautiful medium blue.

I was planning on doing another color blending post and I had chosen a few blues at the time, but was not finished when one of my daughters called. I showed her the color of the day and she instantly declared a color that should go with it, so Ivory was added.

But I had several colors I wanted to add. That’s when my 3 year old granddaughter got involved. She likes choosing pretty things and loves looking at all the pretty fabrics in my studio. She has a very strong opinion as to what constitutes pretty and what does not. As she has declared to my daughter a couple of weeks ago, “If it doesn’t have sparkles on it, it’s not pretty.” Thank you Shana for that information. She’s three…. what can I say?

So my daughter suggested some colors that would go well for a sunset beach scene and we eliminated some of them because the concentration needed be on the water-like colors and less on the sun. So to have fun with the beach scene, we added parchment which has a more sandy colored look.

Then we added creamsicle for the peachy/pink part of the sunset. For the water, we have our focus fabric, Malibu. To this we added a light blue for the tops of the waves, Jamaica and for the deeper green/blue parts of the water we added, Oasis.

But the combination needed one more dark color that would work well with it all. So we added Brown to represent the driftwood on the shore.

You can see these colors in the pic below. But if you’d like, call us, the number is on our website here and we’ll put together this grouping as a fat quarter bundle just for you!
