Sew Thinky Thursday: Week 6

Are you ready for an easy Sew Thinky Thursday question this week? 

What is your favorite color of Kona Cotton*? How much of it do you keep in your stash? Is there a solid that you always find yourself running out of? 

Kona Curry
My favorite Kona is Curry. You're likely to find snippets of it sneaking into many of my sewing projects. I love the way it pops against my normal color palates (blues, pinks, greys). It's pretty amusing that my favorite Kona is a yellow, I don't think that I'd identify my fav color as being yellow in any other circumstance. If someone randomly walked up to me and asked my fav color I'd likely tell them blue - I'm much less picky about blues so there's that. Ironically I don't usually have Curry in my stash - I use every bit of it as soon as I buy it. :) If I had the money I would consider buying a bolt of it... but I actually think my using just a teeny bit is part of the novelty of it. That little pop is all a project needs!
Wouldn't these make a lovely little bundle? Some shop should market the "Emily" Kona bundle - Just saying. 

Other favorite Kona colors of mine include Lagoon, Peacock, Lime, Grass green, coral, melon, pomegranite, cerise, berry, ash, coal, and charcoal. 

You can find images of all the Kona colors on Robert Kaufman's site.

*Feel free to respond using your fav solid fabric type. I know some people swear by other brands, but to me Kona is still the standard. I know the quality to expect when I buy Kona, and I have a color card so ordering online is easy. This post is in no way sponsored by Kona... although I'd really adore if someone felt like making me an official Kona spokesperson (is there such a thing). LOL 

Now it's your turn to share your fave Kona color! Blog about it, then come back here to link up your post! Be sure to check out the other posts linked up and leave them some comment love. Everyone loves comments.


  1. Um..yeah...I'd love your bundle too!! :)

  2. Perfect timing on this post as I just finished quilting my Kona solid blocks for the skillbuilder BOM! I'm glad you showed your favorites. I'm trying to stock them all and this gives me a better idea of which colors to buy. So I will definitely be dropping by this post again near the end of the linkup and check out everyone's choices ;-)

  3. Since you have a color card, may I ask you a question? Forgive me if it sounds dumb, but I am trying to pinpoint a Kona color without a card. Do you find that your color card matches nicely to the Kona colors on your computer screen?
