Kona Giveaway Day!


Kona has such great solids.
I like that they offer them in
Makes life easy.


The colors are so rich
 in the Sunset and Sunrise packs.


I've always wanted to make this quilt
It's so crisp.

We have some yardage and
precuts in the shop
I carry basics - white, snow, black, grey...





The giveaway today is a Kona charm pack of your choice.
We have ash grey, snow white, black, sunset or sunrise.

To enter the drawing, 1) tell me which one you like

Denyse Schmidt has some gorgeous ones too.

Update:  Congrats to ga447!
You are the winner!

  1. I like sunrise. Kona is the brand that is carried locally, so that is what I favor. Kona Snow is my go-to white. Thanks for the chance to win.

  2. I've used a number of different companies' solids, but I really like Kona the best. Black, Snow, and White are a staple (buy it by the bolt) - I do have a project that I could use the Black for.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I really like ash grey and sunset. I'll use whatever but I like that kona has the skinny strips and jelly rolls (I hate cutting sashing I can never cut straight!)

    ReplyDelete
  4. I really like Kona but my orders usually take weeks to arrive so I tend to buy whatever solid crosses my path. And I would feel silly not using what I have...
    I like the sunrise palette - feels very summery!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love sunset! I use whatever I have, I do not stick to one brand only.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like Sunset and Sunrise. I usually buy what I need, so I usually stick with one brand, but I like them all and if I needed a color I already had in a different brand, I wouldn't hesitate to use it! ksmith8@emich.edu

  7. I love solids. I mix solids. I do like my solids to be solid - not a blend. Some shops list some blends as solids. I am making a queen Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt. I want the center of each flower to be a solid yellow; the second round to be a solid color; and the third round to be a very pretty print and then join the flowers with a pretty solid green. I am picky about the solids being true solids not a blended solid. Many of the manufacturers make beautiful solids. I use colors from various manufacturers as some colors accentuate the prints better than others. Thanks for a great discussion starter. Thank you for a chance to win a charm pack - someone is going to be thrilled.

  8. I don't use may different solids, I am a coward, I tend to stick to cream or white, I prefer Moda but I have used Kona on the odd occasion. I will go for white (told ya..coward!!)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I like the sunrise. I choose the solids for quality, like all my quilting fabrics; and then by color. I like the Kona and the Bella. The Kona is more readily available where I live.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I like sunrise! I use kona a lot but do mix it with bella solids too.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like sunrise! I have a mix of Kona (which is the brand my LQS carries) and Moda Bella Solids (which I order online and it's cheaper than Kona). Normally I use solids just as background but perhaps I should try a solid quilt someday.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I prefer Sunrise. I don't have a lot of solids is my stash, but they're a mix of different brands. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just won so I don't think I'm eligible to win this, but I have to tell you I just ordered Kona Snow last week and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I bought white, but it was too bright. I'm hoping snow will be toned down a little.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've been wanting to make a quilt with ash gray. I have only used solids a couple times, and so far, I use what I can find locally. Thanks for the chance to try Kona!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love Kona solids. I would choose sunrise...thank you

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am strictly a Kona girl. I love everything about Kona solids so it is always my go to solid. I love the sunset bundle. It reminds me of summer night.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like the sunrise.....in fabric and in real life! I mix solids as long as they look good together. I would not mix two brands of the same color as they can be a different shade. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I lOVE The sunrise set! I tend to purchase more Kona but I am an equal opportunity solid user. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love Sunrise and Sunset both are beautiful colors. I've just received Kona Snow which I ordered so it's waiting to be used..... Thank you for a chance to win one of your gorgeous Charm Packs. Kona is definitely my go to.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sunrise, without a doubt. I mix and match. Thanks so much for a chance. skeshlaman@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the Sunset colors. I use whatever solid I find that matches. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The Sunrise has always been my favorite. Most of the solids I have in my stash are Kona! Thanks, Corrie!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the Sunset colors. I always buy Kona solids. There is such a wide variety of colors and I know they will not fade or run. One disaster with another black solid taught me a lesson for life.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love sunrise. I buy whatever solids are available when I am in my LQS. Sometimes it's Kona.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love Kona Sunrise the best because that is my favorite part of the day and I just LOVE the colors that are put together for this. So far I haven't really decided which I like best between Bella Solids and Kona - I have a bit of yardage in both and am deciding which to stay with!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't stick to brands, but buy in local stores or in webshops, I often go for sales. I like the sunset palette a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the Sunrise! I primarily sew with Kona but have used a few Bella's as well.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love them both, but I would probably choose Sunrise since I have lots of cool colors in my stash.
    I mix them up, but I do like the Kona best when I can get it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like sunset. I tend to mix my fabrics up. I don't have a favourite brand for solids.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love Sunset! I mix up my solids but love Kona! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would love me some Sunrise! I tend to buy Kona because of the availability in my area. I have one store that carries a huge selection of Moda Bella solids and when I need close colors that I have to see before I buy I go to that shop.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love Sunset! I became a die hard Kona lover soon after I sewed with them the first time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like Sunset best. Kona Solids are fabulous, thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the colors in the sunset charm pack. I usually use Moda Bella solids.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sunrise. I'm still exploring what I like in solids. I've mostly used Kona.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sunset. That is a gorgeous quilt with the hand quilting to match. Wow. I mix up my solids.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I adore Kona but it is not readily available here. So I use Moda Bella and mix it with Kona when I can get them. I like the sunset and the ash grey equally so either would be pleasing to win. Thank you for the give away.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sunrise, definitely. I need more bright colors in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've only ever found Kona here in the UK !!
    I'm a morning person so I would choose 'Sunrise'

    ReplyDelete
  42. I really like the sunset. I'm new to sewing and quilting, so I haven't got a favorite yet, but Kona is definitely looking like a favorite to me!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like sunrise. I don't stick to a particular brand for solids.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think I would choose black for a change. I am not loyal to one brand of solids. Thank you for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I do like Kona, but I tend to mix them as well. Love the snow white. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sunset would be my choice. I buy Kona mostly, but sometimes I do get Moda's solids especially if I am making an order through 1000s of Bolts.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I didn't know this came in precuts; very convenient! This is the only solid I use. I never thought of buying it by the bolt but another commenter said that she does so I'm going to be doing that in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sunrise for me -- I'm a fan of Kona and it is what I usually buy. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Snow is my favorite kona neutral, but I think I'd choose sunrise to try something new.

    I buy whatever solids feel nice and coordinate with my project.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would love Kona Ash. As to what I buy, I have generally stuck with Kona but I'm planning to give American Made Brand a try with my next big project that requires solids. I really love the idea of supporting a company that makes their fabrics entirely in the USA.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love Kona Snow White... I tend to try out different brands but definately feel as if I am bias to Kona:)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I usually use Kona, because they have seem to have the most variety and I like to stick to one brand. Especially with my neutrals- not all whites are the same! I really love the Ash color so I'm tempted by that, but I'd probably go for the Sunrise pack. Thanks for the giveaway:)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think each brand has its own appeal. The finish on each is different too so depending on what look I want I choose the brand that way. Jaybird's patterns always look so beautiful made up in the solids. I like them all and especially the rainbow colors. Thanks for your always generous giveaways! K-

    ReplyDelete
  54. I usually use Kona, Bella or Clothworks and it depends on which tone or color goes best with my project. I really like the Ash color but would probably pick the Sunset palette. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like the cool colors in the sunset pack. I usually buy Kona with the 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby. My second choice is Bella at a LQS.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Today I like the Sunrise pack the best. :)

    When it comes to solids I will buy whatever I need for my project, no matter the manufacturer. The LQS in my area has an extremely limited number of solids (we're talking maybe a dozen?) so I always mail order those.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Konan sunrise! I tend to mix them all together when I am working with solids.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I like Sunrise and I usually use a mix whenever I am using solids.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like Snow white and I usually stick to Kona and bella solids. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I like the Sunrise. I tend to buy mostly kona if I am buying them online, although Free Spirit has some colors I love and buy repeatedly for projects. At my LQS I will buy any brand if it is the color I want.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the color range of Kona cottons. It's really a toss-up between Sunrise and Sunset; I'd be totally happy with either of those collections. If I have a choice, I go for Kona then Bella. Sometimes if I'm looking for just a white or a black, I will buy whatever my LQS has because I know they stock quality fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I like Snow White. I tend to use a lot of white in my quilts and precuts are so convenient. I have purchased both Kona and Moda Bella but I buy Kona most often it is more readily available in my area. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love sunrise and sunset, but I think I would pick sunset. I tend to mix depending on my need. My LQS carries Moda Bella, but I like Kona Ash, because it goes with everything.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love the blues & purples of the sunset charms! I like Kona cottons, but also use Connecting Threads solids, depending on the project. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  66. I like sunrise. I use both Kona and Moda Bella.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Thanks for such a lovely give-away. I love Sunrise but Sunset is a good one as well. I buy Kona solids but am thinking of trying the solids that are made in America.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oooo YUM!!! Sunrise is my favorite, and I always buy Kona. It has performed well for me in the past, and I tend to stick to things that have proved themselves to me!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like Sunset. I tend to get Kona just because it's easiest to find, but I will gladly mix up solids.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like the Sunrise. Mix and match brands. 24Tangent "at" gmail "dot" com

    ReplyDelete
  80. So hard to pick! Sunrise has been catching my eye lately. I usually buy Kona due to the reasonable price, but I absolutely love the hand of Michael Miller Cotton Couture.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love both Sunrise and Sunset. I mainly use Kona solids from Joanne's. They are exactly the same as the ones that they sell in quilt shops, according to them, and I like the convenience of picking them up there. My local quilt shop doesn't have solids.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would love Sunrise! So bright and cheery :-) I mix brands if solids. If the color in need is there I just buy it! I love them all.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  87. Just moved to a new home in a new big city. It is great to have choices on which solids I can buy. I plan to try them all. I would love the sunrise solids to go in my new home.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I lvoe the sunrise colors. I am definitely a mixer with the different brands.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love sunrise - I have all those solids in yardage :p I *like* to keep solids all from one line, but I have mostly kona with some other brands thrown in my stash, and don't worry too much about mixing (though art gallery solids I don't mix with other things that much).

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  107. I would love any of the choices! I think Sunset would be my first choice! I tend to buy Kona because it's carried in Joann's and I'm kinda a "I need it now" kinda gal!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  120. Love em both...but Sunset is favorite! I tend to buy the solids that match the colors best, in whatever prints I'm using :)

    ReplyDelete
  121. I tend to buy what's on special so I don't mind which I use, although I stick to the same brand per quilt in case there's a slight variation in colours. I looooove the Sunset pack.

    ReplyDelete
  122. So hard to choose between sunset and sunrise because ALL of the colours are gorgeous - since I have to choose just one I will choose Sunset. I love Kona cotton solids but it is not always available when I really want some but it is my first choice - always.

  124. I love the Kona Sunrise! I'm always needing some bright colors. I just love Kona cottons.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I like the sunrise colors best. I buy Kona cottons.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I love sunrise the best. I mix my solids.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Love the Kona Sunrise. My both of my lqs mostly sell Kona but I buy Moda too. It's usually whatever color works best, doesn't matter what brand.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I agree with you about that quilt, so pretty. I think I would like the sunrise one. The colors are so cool, not that I've ever been up to see them.
    I usually just use Kona. There isn't a quilt shop near me, so don't get to see other brands. But I did buy some the last time I was at my LQS. The name escapes me.

  129. Love the Sunrise! I use mostly Kona but buy from the others when I need a color they have.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love the sunset colors. I rarely use solids but I'd like to start and work on more elaborate straight line quilting and freemotion too.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Snow is a good basic. I probably have a mix- whatever I can find.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I like Sunrise. I tend to buy Kona but have used some of the other solids here and there.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I like sunset and for a longtime I have only used Kona Solids in Quilts. A LQS owner who didn't carry Robert Kaufman even told me once Kona was the best. I have never had one bleed on anything and I had that problem with a few other brands when I just started. It was sad :( so if I win I will be so :). Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  134. I like the Sunrise and the Sunset Kona. I tend to go with Kona solids.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I like the Kona Sunset Charm Pack. So far I have only used Kona cotton when I need a solid as I can buy it locally.

    ReplyDelete
  136. The Sunset charm pack is my favorite. :) I use different makers, I tend to raid the remnant bins. :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. I love the Kona Sunrise...Yellow being my favorite color. I usually use Bella solids. I started buying Art Gallery solids as I love the tighter weave and less ravelling. Interesting question to see what everyone prefers.

    ReplyDelete
  138. i love Kona Sunset. I tend to buy different brands~ but i usually try to use only one brand for one project~

    ReplyDelete
  139. I love either the sunrise or sunset but if I have to choose just one, I'd choose sunset as I'm really partial to blues, greens, and purple. I haven't taken solids seriously in the past as tend to buy prints but after seeing some really great looking quilts with solids, I'm having second thoughts! kthurn@bektel.com

    ReplyDelete
  140. I like the sunset and I use many different brands :)

  151. I really like the sunset colors - lean toward the warmer tones. I mix my solids up and I'm really liking the AMB fabrics; colors are rich and the fabric feels wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I tend to buy only one brand of solids,
    like Moda's Bella Solids I have ordered the AMB

    ReplyDelete
  153. Oooh, the sunrise is so pretty. I mix it, depends on the color that I'm looking for and which brand is available.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I have not bought any Kona solids but have seen how beautiful the colours are and the quality of the fabric ius exceptional!! I am making some baby quilts so I will need some white or off white.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I like sunrise. I haven't been into precut too much yet! So I guess I could say that I have just been exploring the major brands and haven't settled in on any brand...
