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’d love to have that 353 Sunflower color on my bedroom walls!

  3. Rachael says:

    What a great giveaway! I’m not crazy about all of the pastels. I love raisin. Thanks!

  4. Erin K says:

    I am excited to see Pond in person. I wish I had all the colors, a whole bolt of each. Yum.

  5. Oh I would love to win one of these! :) I really love that mango color & the aloe color too!

  6. Barb says:

    Cool! What a useful tool! I’d have a hard time choosing between Cheddar and Zucchini!

  7. Susan V says:

    Cayenne. and Apricot. and Caramel. Were we only supposed to pick one color? I can’t decide!

  8. Katie says:

    I love the Celery, Asparagus and the Nutmeg – they make me want to go home and start cooking!

  9. Susannah says:

    Cayenne and Everglade. I have to buy nearly all my fabrics sight unseen off the internet, so a color card would be awesome.

  10. Rachel says:

    I recently bought the new color charm pack from Pink Chalk-love the new colors. Favs are olive and mango.

  11. ~Michelle~ says:

    Hehe – I want that whole jelly roll! I really like the Olive color – that could be such a pretty complement to a whole bunch of fabrics. :)

  12. Chris Davis says:

    Pansy and petunia for me!

  13. pam sizemore says:

    i really love the artichoke and green tea. It’s really hard to find great green solids.

  14. joelle says:

    We’re ordering these for our shop, purlsoho. Look for them soon in our accessories departmnent. Thanks for the head’s up, we never thought about selling them!

  15. amanda says:

    I bought mine from Purl Soho. They don’t have them on their web site – you have to call them to order one.

  16. Karissa says:

    Oooh, I really love the Lapis! These are all so pretty–I love Kona solids!

  17. Collette says:

    I think caramel and champagne are my favorites followed by cayenne (and the alliteration wasn’t intentional but merely a fun by-product!).

  18. Sam E. says:

    Love Cayenne and Everglade – especially together!

  19. Chen says:

    I would love to have a Kona color swatch! My all time facorite Kona color is Bahama blue but I really like Azure from the new line.

  20. Jamie AZ says:

    Like someone else said, it would be great to have a bolt of each in our stash! I’m excited about the blues, greens and oranges for the most part. In my 2010 plan is an aqua and red quilt, so anything in those ranges is catching my eye all the time!

  21. sara says:

    What a fun giveaway!
    I love the Ruby and the Lapis … so very pretty!
    THis is such a fantastic tool to have on hand while designing!!

  22. Beth says:

    OOOHHH…..If I have to pick one color to be excited about it would be Caribbean!

  23. Christina says:

    Mmmmmm… I love the spearmint and cheddar colors.

  24. Tamara says:

    hmmmmmm……I love the color pond.

  25. jenny says:

    This is one I’d love to win! I like the new herb color – putty kinds of colors like that are surprisingly hard to find. Everglade is pretty sweet too.

  26. Liz says:

    Green Tea all the way. It’s just about everything I want in a green!

  27. Mary P says:

    Ooh I love asparagus and green tea.

  28. Michela says:

    Butterscotch looks delish!!

  29. AmandaL says:

    I feel like Donkey from Shrek “PICK MEEEEE!” I think Raisin and Peony would work well together, but then, I’d have to see the samples, wouldn’t I? :) Alot of those neutrals seem like they would also work well for flesh tones in doll-making

  30. Stephanie says:

    I LOVE solids and these are gorgeous. For me…Spearmint and Azure!

  31. mmmmmm yummy.
    The first colour, K001-24 Petunia, is just divine, and I really love K001-347 Artichoke and K001-353 Sunflower.

    What a great giveaway!

  32. Kris says:

    Pink Chalk is definitely the place to go for these right now. I just got one from them since Hancock’s is on back order until August!

  37. Deanna says:

    I like the Asparagus color

  38. carolyn says:

    there are too many colors that i absolutely LOVE. however, the cotton spearmint really stood out to me. it looks so summery and refreshing!

  39. sarah says:

    Artichoke is lovely!

  40. mjb says:

    That artichoke color looks great- the color card will be even more necessary with all of these new colors though!

    I like coffee & champagne!

  42. tracy_a says:

    Aloe. Love it.

    Aloe. Asparagus. Artichoke. I totally *heart* them.

  44. georgia says:

    Ooh, lovely new colours. I like Aloe, Pond, and Butterscotch.

  45. Sarah s says:

    I am loving celery. I think it’s always hard to find the perfect green.

  46. Cara says:

    I am loving pansy, but really, they are all fantastic.

  47. Jean says:

    Regatta and Azure would be some of the first I would LOVE to buy, but they are all so so pretty. And that deep deep black looks like a lot of fun to work with!

  48. Karen says:

    I’m always drawn to shades of blue, so my pick is LAPIS (I was surprised to find this fabric named as this blue stone commonly used in Chilean crafts). I’d love to see white or natural prints on this Lapis blue.

  49. Heather says:

    Ok – how cool are these colour cards?! I didn’t even know they existed. I just adore the Spice and Cayenne colours…they make me want think of fall and good wholesome home cooking…mmmmmm!
