Giveaway: Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Color Cards

rkcolorcard3

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. Random.org 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 like the coffee brown and all the sweet blues and greens.

  2. Katherine L. says:

    oooh, I’m loving aloe and pool. They are very similar. Thanks for the notice about the sample cards!

  3. chris says:

    pansy, spearmint, peony, pond, blueberry and mango!
    celery, caramel, artichoke, asparagus, eggshell…oh, who am i kidding, they are all great!

  4. Sarah says:

    It’s hard to tell from the computer screen ;) However, I’m into oranges at the moment, so spice and mango are what I’m looking forward to seeing in person!

  5. Rebecca says:

    Love the aloe!!! So pretty!! :)

  6. I’m really liking artichoke, evergreen and green tea. Love the names of the colors! Thanks for letting us know that a color chart exists!

  7. Diane says:

    I know eggshell isn’t very exciting but that and pansy just strike me as beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity to win a color card!

  8. Wow! Great giveaway! I’ve always wanted one of these cards! I’m super excited about the new colors. The icy pastels make me think of ice cream. I want the eggshell color on one of my room walls. I like nearly all of the new colors. I think Azure is super pretty. Having a card like this will make it so much easier to pick solids for print fabrics I have so I won’t have to cut off any of the print fabric and take it to a store that doesn’t carry much of the Kona solids. This will be so much easier with online shopping. Please add my name to the hat for a chance.

  9. carrie says:

    Artichoke and Pond are really doing it for at the moment. Thanks for the giveaway and the lovely blogwork!

  10. Jennifer says:

    I think I’ll have to go with spearmint. So nice and fresh!

  11. gwensmom says:

    I like mango! Fabric shops around here only care orange solids that sear the eyeballs.

  12. Priscilla says:

    Caribbean is my favorite!

  13. Courtney says:

    I don’t have to pick just one do I? Because I love Azure, Caribbean, Lapis, Asparagus, Blueberry, Pansy and Evening, oh and, Petunia. I can’t pick! Oh, I love them all and I love the color names and oooh pretty!

  14. Jenny says:

    Lovely colors…I think Im most excited for Herb.

  15. Laura W. says:

    I just love the Pansy, Herb, Artichoke, and Sunflower! Yummy!

  16. Rhonda says:

    Can’t wait to get my hands on green tea. Finally tracked down a color card a couple of months ago and blogged it. I am way too excited to see the new colors.

  17. mommymae says:

    ooo…spearmint!

  18. Jocelyn says:

    Bubble Gum and Primrose are such wonderful pink shades. But I like most of the pinks anyway :-)

  19. kate says:

    mango, spice and bubble gum. I never buy solids but am always disappointed when I don’t have any to use.

  20. Carrie says:

    Ah. I love nutmeg and caribbean.

  21. Leanne says:

    peony and olive. gorgeous.

  22. Catherine says:

    Raisin–hard to choose one, though. Thanks!

  23. Kate Erbach says:

    CHEDDAR! ‘cuz I’m from Wisconsin! Now for one called “beer” and I would be all set!

  24. Debra says:

    Gosh, they all look so lovely! Regatta and Artichoke would match my living room decor nicely though.

  25. Meg99 says:

    Beautiful! I’m so excited to see so many variety of greens. Speamint,Artichoke,Zucchini,Celery, and other yellowish greens are my favorite.

  26. I’ve had solids on the brain lately! Love seeing them all in one spot – even better in my own hands :) I am caught up in Caribbean – it’s so vivid! Thanks for sharing!!

  27. Amy Hodge says:

    Lots of the new colors are great, but I’m loving mango, cayenne, and olive. Is there some kind of pattern with the food names, do you think? I was just talking to someone about needing to get these cards! Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. OLIVE!!!!! Hands down, my favorite new color. BTW all the dark colors look the same on my monitor! Yikes.

  29. Herb-
    I am in love with these calming flat colors…

  30. JessZ says:

    Lapis & olive look lovely.

  31. Stina says:

    Everglade, Coffee and Olive, definitely.

    My since-forever-backordered color card is in the mail from Hancocks but it’s the old one! Wish I could see the new shades in person, too.

  32. Jenny says:

    I love the Lapis – reminds me of bluebells!

  33. Lauren says:

    I think they’re all fantastic but Spearmint is probably my favourite. On my monitor, it looks really “clean”.

  34. mariarrosa says:

    I love Mango color. Thank you for the giveaway.

  35. Anna says:

    I like Olive and Spice!

  36. Sally says:

    K001-1706 Celery is definitely my favourite. Just the neutral I have been thinking of for my bedroom quilt – to suit both my and my partner’s tastes.

  37. Ange Moore says:

    Oh – it’s a close run thing between Olive and Raisin or maybe I like them both and together!! I have a thing for purple and green together.

  38. Monica says:

    I especially like artichoke, asparagus, and sunflower. I would love to have a color card! We don’t have any fabric stores that carry more than just a few colors of Kona cottons, so most of my ordering is done online.

  39. patty says:

    Caribbean – just fab!

  40. Jen says:

    I like Everglade and Asparagas. Oh and green tea …

  41. mary peterson says:

    love, love, love all pinks..going with bubble gum (K001-261). blues are usually least fav, but i’m loving the new blues also. they are all beautiful colors. just started stashing solids. hope hobby lobby will carry the new line.

  42. Rosemary says:

    Peony, Azure, Evening! Just the names alone are quite dreamy!

  43. Dot says:

    Hard call as these colors are wonderful but especially like the greens (celery, artichoke, zucchini,etc) as the green choices up until now have lacked more subtle shades

  44. Linda says:

    You’re right trying to choose through a computer screen just doesn’t work. I use Kona all the time and love it. What great new colours, I love the Eggshell and Mango.

  45. yahaira says:

    Im loving cayenne and everglade. Caribbean is also gorgeous

  46. Holly says:

    Love Artichoke and Aloe…so fresh and crisp!

  47. Alexandra says:

    At first glance, I love asparagus, everglade, butterscotch, and olive. Thanks for the giveaway!

  48. Kelly says:

    I’m pretty excited about Artichoke and Petunia. There are so many that are pretty, it’s hard to choose!

  49. Jessica says:

    peony pink for sure!

  50. Anne says:

    Green Tea! I can’t wait to see that one in person!
