  2. Erin K says:

    I think the Brights. Actually I love them so much I thinkg I wouldn’t mix them with any of my other fabrics except maybe some whites and make them into the raddest color wheel type quilt.


    they all rock.

  3. Mary P says:

    Such a tough decision! I’d go with the dark one.

    I like the classic because of the nice bright colors.

  5. Valerie says:

    I love the bright palette best at the moment. I’m in need of something to brighten my mood :)

    this would be PERFECT for the paintbox quilt I’ve been wanting to do!

  10. Katie B says:

    Oh, I love them all! Great new sponsor. If I had to choose one, I’d go with Classic.

  11. Kathy Lou says:

    The bright palette is my favorite! It’s perfect for baby clothes quilt I am starting to make.

  12. holly says:

    i think that my favorite is the brights collection. No, I know that’s my favorite. A close second is the classic roll-up– I love those blues.

  13. Margaret says:

    Dusty palette for me — although the dark palette comes a close second!

  14. Octavia says:

    The classics are easy to love, but the dark palette is quite captivating.

  15. Cindy says:

    Loving the rich colors of the dark palette. LOVE Kona!

  16. hwar says:

    Loving that bright palette!

  17. Kristi says:

    I’m quite partial to the bright palette. I could definitely make a quilt of nothing but the brights!

  18. Catherine says:

    Wow–every one is full of great inspiration. If I had to pick one right now–classic. I just love those blues. Congrats on a great new sponsor!

  19. Audrie says:

    I think the bright palette’s my favourite… just because I’m trying to work with more diverse and bright colours.

  20. They are all so amazing! I am so pleased that Robert Kaufman has not only introduced new colors to their palette but has also introduced new methods of trying them out! I am waiting patiently for their version of the layer cake! I love them all but if I had to pick I would say Dusty – it may as well fit in with the whole ‘theme’ I have going on here! Thanks Kim and Kona Cotton!

  21. Kathie E says:

    So difficult to choose, but the dusty palette is drawing me in. Thank you for the chance.

  22. Rebecca says:

    Oooooo! Definitely the dark! Reminds me of an Amish quilt.

  23. dangermom says:

    Oh, classic or pastel, which one? Ummmm…pastel! Yes. Because I am waiting for spring, and it is not spring out there at all. Pastel.

  24. Debra says:

    Wow, thats a tough decision. I’ve been looking at them for awhile and wondered which to choose. I think I’d get the dusty first and then move on to the others!

  25. Lindsay says:

    I like the dusty and the bright. So many possibilities!

  26. Beth Lehman says:

    Today I am drawn to the dark palette. I looked at them the other day for a “paintbox” quilt along that Oh, Franson! is doing! Check it out!

  27. Sarah H says:

    I like the bright palette the most. I think it has the most variety. I could use it in many different quilts and it would fit in perfectly.

  28. Ramona says:

    dusty dusty dusty! it would go soooooo well with all of my feedsack prints…

  29. Corry O says:

    I really like the pastel colors. It’s very hard to pick, though!

  30. giddy says:

    I guess I like the darks the best. But it’s a hard decision.

  31. Love the darks. Tried to order some but now stock was left.
    Can’t wait to quilt with these.

  32. Carmen says:

    The Bright palette could inspire anyone to do anything!

  33. Brina Rohloff says:

    Oh, I think dark palette would be my cup of tea. they are all lovely and so glad to see they got on the strip band wagon!

  34. giselle says:

    Ooooh, I’m all about the dusty palette!

  35. Mmmm … the dark palette is my favorite. The colors are so rich and earthy. It was a toss-up between the dusty palette, but I must have the purple!!

  36. Nicole says:


  37. michaela says:

    for myself, i love the bright palette, though my daughter would adore the pastels. (she’s three. ;)

  38. Susan says:

    I love the bright palette – it is exactly what I need for my quilt in progress. I hope I win, oh yes I do.

  39. Brianna says:

    Kona cottons are a quilter’s best friend and standby. I’m torn between the Dark and the Classic Palette – but I think the Classic palette would win out in the end.

  40. Jeannine says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! If I had to decide right here, right now, I would choose the brights.

  41. sherri says:

    bright palette, all the way, baby!

  42. Wow! I can’t believe you want us to pick a fabric. They are all beautiful and useful for so many different projects. But, I guess if I had to pick one favorite, I would have to say the classic roll-up. I love those rich, saturated colors. And I really need some roll-ups for a quilt-along I’m participating in :)

  43. Nancy says:

    My favorite would have to be the brights. Thanks to you and Robert Kaufman for offering this giveaway!

  44. Charlotte Haller says:

    I love them all! But I guess if I had to choose one, I would go for the classic.

  45. Barb says:

    Oh, I love them all. I’ve been meaning to buy so I can do Oh, Fransson’s paintbox quiltalong and I just can’t decide. I think I’ll go with Bright today. I’ve been collecting lots of bright prints that these would be perfect for. Thanks for a fabulous give-away.

  46. Karen White says:

    Pastel! and it would ever so great in a Paintbox quilt from the quilt along on Oh Franson! thanks for the opportunity, karen

  47. Kelly says:

    I love the bright and classic palettes best, but if I was to choose one, it would be the CLASSIC. My fabric stash is mostly bright with some black and white thrown in. I’m not a fan of pastels or dark, dusty tones.
    I’d love a classic roll-up so I could join in with Oh Fransson’s Paintbox Quilt Along [At
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Kelly :-)

  48. larissa says:

    love the brights and pastels best. I just love colors, so really I’d be thrilled with any of them.

    Thanks, this is swell, True Up and RK!

  49. Lee says:

    I would have to pick the dusty collection, it reminds me of a bedding set I had when I was 13 yo and I love that Victorian feeling I get when I see those colors.

  50. My vote is for the dark palette! Reminds me of the Bold Crayola Marker packs they used to sell when I was younger :)
