I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of Amanda Murphy's book
which is full of information in color study and has great projects using Kona palettes.
The pattern is from this book and is called Color Burst.
I used Black Kona as the background.
In her book, Amanda Murphy talks about using "Poison Colors" - colors directly opposite on the color wheel to add interest and movement to a design. I decided to take that advice and use orange as the binding color.
The orange really fits with a sunset and added a little pop.
I quilted the main part with free motion flowers using Aurifil thread and wavy lines on the water (teal) part.
Amanda has an excellent tutorial for continuous bias binding on her blog.
This was my first bias binding, by the way. Love.
