We’re Leaping Forward With New Releases

With daylight savings coming this weekend our thoughts turn toward getting back out in the garden and working with our favorite plants. Here at Kona Bay Fabrics, I’m thinking about the fruits of summer, too. Our tone-on-tone fabrics have long been popular staples of a quilters’ stash and I’d like to introduce two new designs we’ll release soon.

In May, look for eighteen colorways of our new Autumn Tonals from Seattle Bay. These beautiful five pointed leaves with their subtle shading transform as they appear to fall from the tree. The design offers a feeling of depth and drama that will accent a variety of projects. This fabric will be equally at home as a supporting character in a quilt or the focal point of your new “green” home décor.

In June, Kona Bay brings you eighteen colorways of the striking new Mum Tonals. The elegant yet stylish interpretation of the Japanese mum is sure to brighten your day and any project it’s paired with. The distinctive lines and contrasting tones will bring a level of sophistication to your next sewing adventure. I can see it as a fun summer bag or a flirty warm weather sundress—hey, maybe even a stylin’ shirt for me! And, of course, imagine the possibilities as a coordinate in the Asian quilt you have in the works.

So turn back those clocks on Sunday and use the extra daylight to plan a project with these fun, new tone-on-tones!


  1. Beautiful prints. Can't wait to see them in the stores.

  2. They are talking about Mrs. Obama's dress with the Kona Bay print on the Mrs. O. blog.
    I commented about it and the talk went on. Read the March 7 comments and see what was said.
