Tuesday Tip: Kona Cotton, the Perfect Solid

Kona Cotton, from Robert Kaufman Fabrics, is considered to be the best collection of solid coloured quilting cottons. Here are a dozen things (in our opinion…) that make Kona solids the best:

  1. Kona Cotton is perfect for quilting, apparel and more. We sell Kona solids not only to quilters but seamstresses making garments and even 4H groups who are preparing fairgrounds for exhibitions.
  2. Kona Cotton has been tested for carcinogenic dye stuffs, formaldehyde, lead,    skin-friendly ph factor and has the Confidence in Textiles certification.
  3. Kona now offers 365 different colours and follow colour trends introducing new colours every year.
  4. Need a binding to complete your quilt? Our staff is available to help you find the right Kona solid to match your quilt top.
  5. Kona-Snow is our most popular item from Kona. We have used it for many years in in our quilt kits and it continues to be just the right solid fabric that isn’t too bright.
  6. Did you know that there is Kona-Black plus Kona-Jet Black (Premium)? Kona-Jet Black (Premium) is really dark and looks strikingly black!
  7. As per our website, we give a $24 discount off the cost of a full bolt of any regular 45″ Kona solid. Let us know what colour you would like and we will order a bolt(s) from the warehouse to meet your needs.
  8. Virtually reversible, the colour on a Kona solid looks the same on both sides.
  9. Kona comes in 45″, 60″ and 108″ widths. We try to have black and white and grays in the wider bolts in stock. Wider widths are awesome for sashing, binding and backings!
  10. Kona solids are really great for quilt borders and sashing as well as becoming a  background fabric for appliqué.
  11. Kona solids are also available in precuts: 1 1/2″ strips, 2 1/2″ strips &/or squares, 5″ squares and 10″ squares. We are glad to special order precuts just for you!
  12. Solid coloured Kona is cheaper per metre to purchase than “printed design fabric”. At only $11.98 per metre for 45″ fabric, this is a great way to save money!

Happy stitching!
