Pretty Pastels

A secret project. Don't you hate it when you hear this? Please forgive me, it's the first time in the last 2-3 years.

Sure I have things to do, like to quilt it, but I needed a little break.

I saw Robert Kaufman releases 32 new colors of Kona cotton; they will have 303 colors! I love my two big boxes of Kona, I took the time to count them; I can't believe I have almost 100 colors (many duplicates and very similar colors, so I don't have really 100 colors to choose from).

Where do you buy Kona cotton ? I used to buy from Hancock's of Paducah.
Their half yard measures about 20''! I don't know if this is a rule (or someone there loves me!), but it happened with most of my orders. Since their International shipping raised, I did not buy Kona!



  1. have a nice break and as far as purchasing kona...I can't help you there Geta....I have no idea who has the best prices...we need a buying group....yep I think that is what we need...

  2. Missouri Star Quilt Company has good prices on their Kona, but I don't know what their international shipping costs. Have fun working on your secret project!

  3. I would love to know where to buy Kona cottons in the EU. I also don't have a source other than my local quilting shop which is pretty pricey compared to the US prices.

  4. pretty PIXELATED pastels! That first pic is SO COOL!

  5. Try fabricshack.com Kona is $5.49/yd u.s. Dollars and shipping up to 9 yds is $18.00 international.

  6. In aceasta perioada Hancock"s of Paducah are transportul international 10$ pentru 100 $ cheltuiti. Destul de des (aproape saptamanal) au avut reduceri de 15-20% din intreaga comanda. Transportul se calculeaza la valoarea comenzii inainte de reducere, insa.
