This review is from: We Love Color: 16 Iconic Quilt Designers Create with Kona Solids (Paperback)
What a range of work - for good and bad. The editor of this book did not seem to have particularly high standards. Some of the quilts are exquisitely made with beautiful piecing and quilting, others, such as the TV color block quilt, are shockingly poorly made. The machine quilting on quilts such as ladders and sanibel are wonderful though.
Like many who sew, I love the range of Kona colors but, also like many I know, I really am not a fan of the coarseness of the fabrics or the inconsistency of their dye lots. I hope that quilters realize there are many other choices other than Kona out there.

Yes, I agree that Kona solids are coarse feeling. I personally love the Michael Miller line of solids. It feels like light, flowing, fine sheets (of course without the high threadcount). Question: Did they include patterns? Or is this just a coffee table book?
