Introducing the KONA 2022 Color of the Year!

The 2022 KONA Color of the Year is here and we can’t wait to sew up a new quilt with it! This intergalactic color urges us to look up at the starry heavens! This year’s color of the year is Cosmos, a stunning purple that can take any quilt project to the stars! We are excited to use our new favorite Kona Cotton Solid, and we are looking forward to seeing it appear in your creations.

Who doesn’t love another great basic to add to their fabric stash? Robert Kaufman chooses one color from their KONA Cottons each year as their Color of the Year and designs free patterns and projects to display the bright color chosen to represent that year. Last year’s chosen color was Horizon.

Free Quilt Patterns with Cosmos

To celebrate this intergalactic color, Robert Kaufman has released several free quilt patterns in Cosmos fabric. Check out each of these patterns to make with the Cosmos Color of the Year precuts (Roll UpCharm Packs, and 10″ Squares) and yardage. Tell us in the comment section how you will use Cosmos this year!

Light up the night sky with the dazzling purple stars of Diamond Delight! This twinkling FREE quilt pattern finishes at 60″ x 68″ and will dazzle your home with its purple diamond and stars.

No night sky has ever been this radiant! Cosmos shines brightly in Radiant Stars. This 60″ x 72″ sized quilt is simple quilt perfect for beginners and a beautiful rendition of a starry night.

If you have a special place in your heart for the color purple, then Purple Pashion is the FREE quilt pattern for you. With Cosmos in focus, this 60″ x 77.5″ quilt will satisfy anyone that is a true lover of the color purple.

Be sure to grab your 2022 KONA Color of the Year fabrics, a pattern, and share your new Cosmos quilt with us! Tag us at @fatquartershop on Facebook and Instagram, so we can see and share your work!

Happy Quilting!


  1. Looking forward to incorporating this color into my quilts. I have two family members whose favorite color is purple and this will add sparkle to fabrics I already have in projects I make for them!

  2. Purple is one of my favorite colors. And I would use this new color in a quilt to commemorate my 75th birthday this year.
    Looking forward to beginning a new quarter of my life!

  3. I would love to work with Jollyjabbers club but so far I am missing getting my sewsampler boxes. Please let me try this new club
