Around the Color Wheel: Grey

I received these beauties before I left for Disney with my family, but was so insanely busy that I didn't have time to post about them. I didn't even have the pleasure of opening them! I am so happy Tammy picked grey for January.

Kona has come out with some amazing new colors in the grey family. Graphite is the PERFECT grey. Everyone used to swoon pretty hard over Coal, but I always thought it had purple undertones that stood out too much to me. Charcoal is the ultimate dark grey. I had a bit of a love affair with Ash, but someone pointed out to me that its undertones were very tan. Iron is just utter perfection for a light grey. And Silver! I never even knew I needed Silver. There are times when I want a light background and Snow really is too bright, but all the greys are just too much against the prints. Silver is just barely grey but not as in your face as white. I can't wait to make a quilt with it!

If you missed this month's Around the Color Wheel bundles, you can find them at Marmalade Fabrics! I am loving watching my sad stash of solids grow!


  1. I discovered Silver a few months ago - I use it for everything now!!! I used to use Ash but Silver is more versatile!

  2. I like Iron too. I havn't seen graphite in person yet. Good to know I should!

  3. Slate looks very blue doesn't it? I like how you've talked up silver. I might have to try it out.
