Giveaway: Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Color Cards


Robert Kaufman Fabrics has introduced 42 new colors of Kona Cotton Solids (including new organics and a premium jet black), bringing the total number of available colors up to 221. My friends at Robert Kaufman recently sent me a few of the newly updated sample cards. These cards are essential if you use Kona solids in your quilting or sewing projects at all — before I got one I was ordering colors based on web and paper catalog images, which just don’t cut it in terms of accuracy. Even if you’re fortunate enough to have a local brick-and-mortar store that carries a wide variety of Kona solids, having this card allows you to prepare a shopping list before before you leave the house.


I just have to keep one card for myself but I have two more to give away. Visit this link then come back here and leave a comment telling me the new color or colors you’re most excited about. This giveaway is open to the whole world. Comments will be open through this Friday, July 25, around 3pm; winners will be announced shortly afterwards here and on Twitter.


P.S. Since my last giveaway, I’ve received quite a few emails asking where to buy these sample cards. Pink Chalk Fabrics has the new ones and Hancock’s of Paducah has the old ones. Does anyone know of other sources?

Comments are now closed. picked #51 and #159, Heather (who likes Spice and Cayenne) and Liz (who likes Regatta). I appreciate all your comments, everyone — thanks for playing!

    I love Azure! I think it matches a blue in some Amy Butler fabric I have that’s hard to match. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Teresa p says:

    The new colors I’m most excited about are Spearmint and Coffee. I’m going through a lime green and brown thing right now.

  3. Nova says:

    ooo – I was just eyeing these off at pink chalk studio the other day thinking how fab they are! Thanks for the chance to win. I just can’t go past all the greens and blues and I’m loving Asparagus and

  4. Ange says:

    I love the greens especially celery and olive and the fact that there lots of boyish colours.

  5. Jes says:

    Mango! Coffee! Olive!

  6. Lynn says:

    Coffee and green tea. Yum!

  7. Kristin says:

    I LOVE Kona cotton solids – I don’t think I’ve made a single quilt without at least one Kona solid in it (they’re great for sashing, backings, bindings, etc.), and I’ve definitely made a few with only Kona Cotton fabrics. I agree; you just can’t get an accurate idea of the colors online. I love the new colors Aloe (197) and Evening (195), and I often use the “old” colors Blue Bell (1029) and White (1387).

  8. Liz says:

    I love Regatta – pretty blue water!

  9. aimee says:

    ooh – Lapis, Bubble and Pansy are just lovely. Kona is so great to work with.

  10. Linda says:

    Hard to choose…so many pretty choices. I think Olive is my favorite.

  11. Alissa says:

    Love the asparagus and lapis. So excited for these new colors!

  12. kat says:

    I think the aloe and asparagus have stolen my heart, but I would love that nice jelly roll too! I’d take that fabric roll and pet it and love it and…

  13. Terri Harlan says:

    Oh my goodness what a great tool that is, I had no idea they made those. I would be very interested to see them in real life. I think I would be excited about the coffee color. It’s so hard to find a good deep chocolate brown. I seem to use that color a lot now.

    Thank you so much, I hope I win

  14. Lea says:

    I love Mango ~ such a rich orange!

  15. Tina says:

    I am really loving Asparagus and Mango. I have thought for awhile that Kona needed another orange and so I’m thrilled to see it!


  16. Louise says:

    I’m most excited about the more neutral new colors, like Herb and Eggshell. Especially Eggshell– fun to have a new off-white option.

  17. Ann says:

    I think Petunia is my number one to be purchased right now as I am in a sorta soft mood and have nothing like this on the shelf. I purchased 6″ charms of all the colors about 7 years ago and it was one of the best purchases I made.

    Last time I checked with HofP, they said they don’t have anymore swatch cards. That was about a month ago. Kaufman also said they did not have any so it is good to know there is a new one available.

    Thanks for the chance to update.

  18. Kerri says:

    oh, i would LOVE one of these!! ;)

    loved the color azure!! will need to pick up some of that one!!

  19. Miranda says:

    Caribbean is my favorite, but I’d be happy to touch any of them!

  20. Nancy R says:

    Love Kona cotton! Evening and everglade would be my picks!

  21. Jody says:

    I would love to win this card because it’s so hard to shop over the internet and then receive a wrong shade!! The colours I like the best right now are the spearmint and pond (love blues and greens)

  22. GTM says:

    I love the cayenne!

  23. Fay says:

    pond and asparagus, again with the blues and greens.

  24. Lynn M says:

    Love Kona and all of its colors, but I’d have to go with mango or asparagus. They are both so scrumptious.
