We have the privilege of hosting the completely stunning Kona Color of the Year Trunk Show here in Hamilton in our Penney’s Shop, the Missouri Star Quilt Co shop devoted to solids, basics and specialty fabrics. The show features masterpiece quilts from some wonderful quilters, including Heather Jones, Elizabeth Hartman, Darlene Zimmerman, Valori Wells, and Carolyn Friedlander. These quilts are so inspiring! I love seeing so many interpretations and ideas sprung from one new shade of color!
