Did you all follow along on the We Love Color blog tour? The grand prize from Robert Kaufman is a We Love Color-themed Bounty of Basics Box containing 100 fat quarter pieces of the top 50 colors used in the book! With such a fantastic prize tempting me, I followed along and took notes on the colors the bloggers said were their favorites. Since I was lucky enough to get a copy of the book itself at Quilt Market, I didn't comment on many of the giveaways on the blogs on the tour. But, wouldn't you know, I won one of the giveaways where I did leave a comment!
A little more about the book first - We Love Color, published by Stash Books, includes 16 quilts designed by 16 amazing designers all using Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton solids. If you've been thinking of making a solids only quilt, this book will have one for you to try. If you are already sold on solids, there will still be quilts from this book you'll really want to make. (Honestly, these quilts would look great in prints too, shhh). There is a wide variety of quilts in the book - from bold to subdued, few pieces to many, symmetrical and asymmetrical, small and large. The cover quilt, by Jacquie Gering, is one of my favorites - big shapes in a quilt are such fun and so bold and dramatic.
On to the giveaway part! I have a book to give away AND a charm pack of Robert Kaufman's 28 new Kona colors (also scored at Quilt Market :)). To enter, tell me what color you are crushing on now - it doesn't have to be your all time favorite, just what you are dying to make a quilt with today. Follow my blog or like Esch House Quilts on Facebook and leave me a comment telling me so for a second chance to win. Those of you who are no-reply bloggers, don't forget to leave me your email address in the comment so I can reach you if you win. This giveaway is open to international entries and will close at the end of the day Saturday, July 14. Good luck!
