Introducing the KONA 2024 Color of the Year! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Introducing the KONA 2024 Color of the Year!

The highly anticipated KONA Color of the Year for 2024 has arrived, and we’re thrilled to embark on a quilting adventure with it! Julep, a breathtaking green, can elevate any quilt project to refreshing heights. Armed with this newfound favorite Kona Cotton Solid, we’re looking forward to the new year.

Who can resist adding another versatile gem to their fabric collection? Robert Kaufman creates a standout shade for their KONA Cottons lineup every year, dubbing it the Color of the Year. They then craft free patterns and projects that showcase it and symbolize that particular year. Last year, the spotlight fell on Cosmos.

Quilt it Up!

To celebrate this new addition to our favorite colors, we’ve redone some of our most popular quilt patterns in Julep fabric.

We’re also planning an exciting quilt along with the design below that will use our upcoming Mint Inspired Fat Quarter Bundle (which includes Julep), and we’ll be sharing all the details in the new year, so stay on the lookout for this exciting project to hit our blog!

Free Quilt Patterns with Julep

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

Brighten your home with this cocktail of colors in Mint Julep! This collection of squares and half-square triangles finishes at 62″ x 72″ and will surely be a delight.

We’re suckers for some pretty plants! Succulent swirls with Julep, like new sprouts in your garden. This 48.5″ x 60.5″ quilt is an elegant quilt for beginners and blossoms with beauty. 

If you’re a green lover, then Duality is the FREE quilt pattern meant for you. With Julep making up half the design, this 56″ x 72″ quilt is a gorgeous addition to any home.

  2. What a great, fresh color! Kona solids are my favorite for quilting! With Julep, I would make a quilt of log cabin blocks and use the Julep fabric as the neutral with some fun Spring colors.

    1. Bonjour, j’aime beaucoup cette couleur et je me réjouis de l’intégrer dans mon quilt fleurs 2024 !

  3. I have a goal to make quilts for family: brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews. 6 done, 15 to go – includes baby quilts for twins in May 2024, several overdue wedding/anniversary quilts. Any help in completing these would be appreciated. My youngest brother just got remarried, they are both avid golfers, this color green would go well with golfing fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    1. I love the Mint Julep pattern shown here. I plan to use the Kona Color of the Year to make it. It’s a beautiful color!

  4. I would make a quilt to put in my cottage bedroom. With other soft greens and blues it will be perfect.

  5. Such a pretty color! I think this would look good integrated into a vintage looking Christmas quilt.

  6. My first Grandchild – a boy will be arriving in 2024. I think this would be a perfect color for a baby quilt!

  7. I plan to make a quilt adding more blues and greens to make a sea quilt for our bed. We need a “neutral” quilt for our bed as hubby doesn’t like my purple quilt.

  8. I have been saving delicate blues for a sea-glass colored quilt for a good friend; this green would be perfect to include.
    Thank you for this opportunity.

  9. I love Succulents so the free quilt pattern would be perfect for the Julep giveaway. Fingers crossed!

  10. I plan to use this to set up the blocks from a shop hop 3 years ago ! Time to finish that quilt!!

  11. Such a light and fresh color! I would incorporate into a house quilt with all the houses using spring colors.

  12. What a great color. I really want to make a 2 color quilt and was originally thinking of red, but Julep would make a nice option too. Looking forward to a quilty new year.

  13. I plan to use Julep in the 2024 sew along, plus it will really perk up some projects I’ve been putting off for lack of inspiration!!!! I won’t even mention that all shades of green are my absolute favs!!!

  14. This is my favorite color and I love that it’s the color of the year. Can’t wait to pick some coordinating color and try one of the new patterns.

  15. A nice soft relaxing green! Loving it and that name “Julep”. Maybe something Kentucky Derby inspired?
    However, Iam really in love with the Beautiful coloring within the “Succulents” quit pattern shown above in purple and Julep! I AM going to make that quilt!

  20. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Julep! It is fresh and inspirational. My mind in racing with ideas. The hard part will be to narrow it down to the right pattern for me. Can’t wait to get my hands on some.

  21. I’m working on a baby quilt for a little one who’s about to make her entrance into this world. I have been looking for just the perfect green to use for the flowers and I believe that Julep would be that green. It’s so soft, just like the pink that I found. Happy quilting.

  22. Such a fun color. It is a beautiful addition to a quilt. I look forward to ising it in the coming year

  23. I am mildly obsessed with Then Came June’s Star Adventure pattern done with Kona’s Julip, Wasabi and Acid Lime. I was waiting for the COTY to arrive at FQS before grabbing it and these other two colors. This mixture of green and yellows is spectacular and I cannot wait to sew it!

  24. What a “yummy” color. I’m definitely going to have to find some way to incorporate into a quilt probably as a background fabric.

  27. I love the Julep color and can’t wait to add it to my ever-growing collection of Kona fabrics. I want to make both the Duality pattern and Cocktail!

  43. This is such a great giveaway! I would use this color to make a baby quilt. It’s a blast from the past.

  44. I can see this Julep color used in many wonderful ways. I see using it as a refreshing background color in a scrappy green quilt I hope to make in 2024.

  45. This is such a great color! I would love to make a pineapple blocks quilt with shades of green and pinks with it! 🥰😻

  46. Love this color! I admit that I am not a great quilter yet, but I am an avid bag maker! I can see this color with others in some spring bags!!

  47. I could not be more excited about this color! Mint is my FAVORITE color. January is my birthday month and out of allll the quilts I’ve made for others I’ve never made myself a quilt. I’m not alone there I’m sure. So I’m going to make myself a quilt for my birthday and what a perfect year to do it with julep the new color of the year ❤️

  51. I am making quilts using Flower Power by Maureen McCormick and this color would be perfect as a background.

  52. I will use it as a background for beautiful spring fabrics. It will be fabulous! Warmer weather will be here before too long!

  53. I’m planning a wisteria quilt for 2024 and think Julep would be a great leaf or background color

  54. This is one of my favorite colors. It is such a versatile color. After making so many Christmas gifts I would make me a quilt to use my new Christmas gift of a Longarm quilter my dear husband of 38 years surprised me with this year.
    Happy holidays to everyone!

  55. Love Julep and can’t wait to plan my next project using it! It is just beautiful and so refreshing!!!

  56. I have always been partial to this color. I have a lot of it in my wardrobe. I will be making a few baby quilts this year and will use this in some of those, and I have a special project in mind for a larger quilt featuring Julep! How refreshing!

  57. Love the new color. I like your coloration of your plus quilt, so that’s what I would make.

  58. Beautiful new color. I will be adding it to my fabrics and love the patters you have made up with it. Thank you.

  59. The Star Crossed quilt you showed as an example looked striking in the Julep. That’s what I’d like to make with this year’s featured color!!

  60. This mint green has always been my favorite spring color. So glad it’s back in vogue! Now I can add to my wardrobe as well as my quilt stash! LOL

  61. I would sew a lively total solid lap quilt. I have not made a quilt out of all solids before and I’m itching to try it.

  63. My favorite fabrics are 1930s inspired. I think Julep will go nicely with those. I have sew many ideas for lovely quilts using this color.

  64. I Love this color! I can think of so many uses for it. I’m interested in the upcoming quilt-along.

  65. This is a pretty soft color. Makes me think of spring quilt. Or baby. This will be fun to work with. Can’t wait. Must order. lol.

  66. THIS IS MY FAVORITE COLOR! I would love to make the Succulent pattern with Julep and the accompanying purples and lavenders.

  67. My quilts tend to be pastels, and I always have leftovers. Kona’s Julep will be used to give them a put together and coordinated! I can’t wait!

  68. What a great color! Need to check my patterns, but would love to use it with some shades of blue and aqua. Maybe with a hint of coral?

  69. I lovejulip, the Kona color of the year, and as I am a traditional kind of gal I would love to make Mint Julip in this lovely calm color. I do like all of the free patterns developed to use julip and may even make more of them.

  70. I love the new Kona color for 2024 and I would love to mis it with Pantone 2024 color Peach Fizz and make the Succulent quilt

  71. Green with purple (sometimes touches of orange) is my favorite color so I really like the Succulent quilt – very spring-like!

  72. I’m going to use Julep with black in Duality, or in the next QAL. Or maybe I’ll do both because I’m really loving this color.

  73. I just fell in love with the Mint Julep pattern! This is the one I plan to make!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win a layer cake! Whoop!

  74. I just love the Succulent pattern. I have a light purple guest room that needs a quilt on it. This will be perfect. I also like the Duality quilt. It looks very manly to me.

  75. I would enjoy making Mint Julep. I like the coral with it but would love to mix a ditzy print of coral with the solid julep 😍

  76. Julep is such a fresh, soft green that I think it would look great as a background to some cool colors in a quilt. I may make the one you highlighted as your sew along and also Robert Kaufman’s “Mint Julep” looks fun. Thanks!

  77. Oh I really like this new color of the year- my DIL’s favorite color is green so will definitely be making her a quilt with this new color!

  78. My favorite block is the humble shoofly, so I absolutely love the mint julep quilt with all the shooflys. That’s definitely the one I want to make with this new color!

  79. What a super appealing color! I’m thinking some of my Kaffe stash would coordinate well w/Julep as a background. Possible patterns: “Reflections” (a free PDF by Karen Lewis for Robert Kaufman Fabrics) or possibly the free FQS “Custard” layer cake pattern.

  80. How exciting that you are posting a Julep giveaway, just in time, because I plan on using Julep as the background fabric for Enchanted Stars quiltalong in 2024. Ironically, it pairs well with Kona Enchanted, a previous Kona Color of the Year.

  81. I have an arrowhead pattern that would look really good with the mint julep as a contrast.

  82. I LOVE this color….my sewing room is actually painted in this color. I plan on using Kona Julep (along with some coordinating fabrics) as part of a new sewing machine mat/thread catcher combo to match my sewing room!

  83. I had plans to make a couple of the free Julep patterns from Robert Kaufman then I saw the log cabin concept on this blog to be made with the Mint Inspired Fat Quarter Bundle so another quilt has been added to my To Do List. Plus this Julep is a great color to use in vintage inspired quilts – best of all I will have fun with this new color.

  84. I would LOVE to make the Duality quilt with Julep! Definitely a pattern and color I would never have thought to make on my own.

  85. I would make the mint julep quilt or Jessica Dayon’s “A Year in Solids” June quilt. What a beautiful color!

  86. I love the color and plan to make a rug and a French rose raw edge flower quilt two of my favorite things to sew

  87. This 2024 color is so pretty! I plan to use it as a background for a block of the month I’ve been planning to begin – from 2023. I have all the block patterns and fabric, except for the background. Now I know what to use.

  88. Love the color. I can see a carpenters star in my future with this. Add a hint or orange or peach then add a nice Grey background.
    Would be pretty for sure!

  89. Looks like the favorite shade from the 1980’s! It was everywhere and was a pastel loved with big pink cabbage roses. Looks good with peach and mauve, as well as chocolate brown (think mint chip ice cream!)

  90. Such a fresh beautiful color and i just love it. This would brighten any room and anyone’s spirit used in a quilt.

  91. Love this color. Great choice. I would love to make the Snail’s Trail quilt shown in this post!

  92. I would love to make the mint julep pattern. It is gorgeous in these colors. It would also work as background fabric.

  93. This fabric is beautiful to look at and I can’t wait to touch! I would love to win this mint julep fabric!

  94. I am making 2 quilts with the KONA COTY 2024 – Mint Julep and Succulent. Can’t wait to get sewing!!

  95. That is a beautiful shade of mint. I love it with the purple that is probably gonna be in my list of projects 2024.

  96. This is a beautiful color!! I’m planning on making the Mint Julep pattern and also participating in the QAL!

  97. I love the free download pattern Mint Julep. I plan to make this one with the Kona Julep. It’s such a subtle and refreshing color.

  98. Oh this color is gorgeous! I love the sew along pattern with the log cabin blocks and the petit four quilts in these colors are so beautiful. There is also a pattern in the Red & White Quilts II book by Jessica Dayon “Fireworks” that would be stunning with this fabric. I would have a hard time choosing between these three but one of them would be my selection to make with this color.

  99. I’m thinking about making a nice springtime Irish chain with the mint julep, as well as the succulent pattern with the purples.

  100. I will be using mint Julep in one of the many sew alongs in 2024. Or, have been wanting to make a Hunter’s Star quilt in red and white, I can see this in Julep and white.

  101. I ordered two yards of it to see if it will look good with fabrics I have picked out for a pattern I love by Jeni Baker. I want to make her quilt using a fat quarter of the new Corey Yoder line coming out in spring/summer that has all of the bright colors, stripes, dots, etc. not certain it will work for that quilt, so might do your sew along, I just know I’m going to use it in an upcoming project, as it is a great color of the year.

  102. I’m thinking this would be a beautiful background in place of white or cream. I think I’d like to try a scrappy quilt with this as the background.

  103. Love the new color of year for2024. I like the soft green color. I would probably make a lap size quilt

  104. The color makes me think of spring. I love greens. Thank you for the free patterns. Succulent and mint julep are my favorites. 💚

  105. My daughter-in-law just asked for a baby quilt for her sister who is due in May. This color will be perfect for a girl or a boy!

  106. The Petit Four or the Succulent would be the patterns I would be most interest in using the Julep. I’ve not done a quilt in greens!

  107. Beautiful color. I will probably use it as a background in a pattern. I really liked the Julep and white quilt you displayed in your blog

  108. Love the soft but bright color. Can’t wait to try something…maybe with peach…maybe with navy.

  109. I hope you have a cargo boatload of this in stock! We, your loyal customers are going to be using all of it! I am ordering some to make the quilt with the peach you showed on this blog. I think I will be using it in lots of other places so I am ordering lots of it!

  110. I really love the new color!!! I have a few quilt designs that I plan to work on in the coming year….now, a couple will be re-worked to include this beautiful color!! Especially one I have planned for my daughter. She loves purple and I think this soft green color would work fabulously with the purple I have in mind!! Thank you so much for spotlighting this beautiful color, it will add so much to a lot of the quilt designs I have planned!! Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway!!

  111. I love the green and peach quilt will put that on my list. I have the 2024 Kaufman calendar and plan on doing the blocks each month in different colors for a sampler. The Juliet color is so beautiful. Reminds me of pistachio fruit salad from Christmas.

  112. I love the Julep color! Kona solid cottons are wonderful to quilt with and starch up beautifully! I use them often.

    I plan to sew along with FQS!

  113. Great color. I would love to make the succulent quilt. I really love these colors together.

  114. Julep is a yummy color! Perfect for a baby quilt which I plan to make for my new granddaughter in 2024.

  115. Love the cool crispness of Kona Julep! That Duality pattern caught my eye for its modern symmetry. oolala!

  116. I’d like to use that color with scraps as constant. Feels very fresh and would contrast with lights and darks.

  117. Love this Julep! I’m making Chicken Salad for my young granddaughter. Green being her fav color, I plan to use Julep for the block borders vs the scrappy look.

  118. Love this color! Succulent is my choice to make with it. Love green and Purple together.

  119. I am so glad you shared the Kona Color of the Year 2024, Julep. Such a sweet, refreshing color and just love it. I make children’s quilts for Children’s Cancer Network fundraising events. Julep would be an excellent choice to include in my next quilt project. Any child would love to receive such a pleasingly fresh gift.

  120. I would like to use Julep Kona fabric to do pattern ” Intertwine” by Elise Lea. I would need two other green, to go with! More fabric! Great!!!

  121. Green is my signature color! This minty color of green is a perfect match with Pantone’s color of the year…peach. Both will be lovely on a background of cream.

  122. I will do a baby quilt with it as well as a sweet spring quilt for myself. Not sure of the pattern yet but am drawn to Succulent Stars. This choice of Color of the Year will probably be very popular.

  123. It might go in to a wedding quilt that I am making. Or I just might make that free green and purple quilt pictured above.

  124. I want to try the Julip and Duality patterns. They look like ones I can handle and the colors are gorgeous!

  125. Julep is an amazing color that makes me immediately think of my favorite ice cream – mint chocolate chip from Baskin and Robbins! I feel inspired to make a table runner and some bowl cozies in Julep and a dark chocolate brown.

  126. I absolutely love this colour. I also love the 4” Petit Four pattern which looks gorgeous in this colour and I also love the Mint Julep…..decisions!

  127. I love the color of the Mint Julep. I would like to make this quilt and put it on the bed in my daughter’s room. It is gorgeous!! Great girly colors.

  128. Love the julep and peach quilt! I would like to make that one. It is a refreshing and exciting color. Thanks, Kona!!

  129. I love the many colors in the teal/aqua family so this would fit right in. I will have to think of a pattern to use: maybe a Sea Glass one.

  130. What a pretty colour! I was expecting something darker/more vibrant since they had a pastel-y one last year, but they will go together nicely.

  131. Love the color. I’m making mostly wall hanging lately and I think this one would be a good color to start to make a spring flower wall hanging.

  132. My daughter loves the new color. It would go well in a spring quilt. I also like the Mint Julep pattern.

  133. Just found out I have 2 great grand babies on the way – I plan on using Julep in one of the baby quilts.

  134. I’ve already downloaded the Succulent Swirls pattern! I’m going to swap out the purple for teal. Can’t wait to start!

  135. I’m making a quilt top with 30’s fabric. I think the mint julep fabric would be perfect for the sashing. Now I need to figure out how much yardage I’ll need.

  136. Green happens to be one of my favorite colors. I think I may try the Succulent swirls quilt. I love the purple and green together so beautiful! I am sure I will find many uses for the Julep fabric.

  137. I love Kona solids! In 2024, I plan to mix this gorgeous color (Julep) into my Sewcialites 2 quilt, which is still a work in progress!

  138. I would love to make an ice cream cone quilt with this fabric. I love the color. Reminds me of my mom, she had some Victorian chairs upholstered in this color. They were beautiful!

  139. I would love to make an ice cream cone quilt with this fabric. I love the color. Reminds me of my mom, she had some Victorian chairs upholstered in this color. They were beautiful!

  140. Wow, wouldn’t this make fantastic 2-color quilt? Or mixed with a teal or red or pink. So many options.

  141. I would use the julep fabric for the Succulents pattern from Robert Kaufman. Love the green with the shades of purple!

  142. I love this color of green with purple. I see a purple and green quilt in my future. I just need to find the perfect pattern for it! This reminds me so much of some of the old, old quilts that we have inherited from my grandmother and my husband’s grandmother and this is the color that was used in the background. So special!

  143. Love julep. It’s a great extension to a palette of greens. I’d like to see it into a Christmas quilt with red, pink and aqua.

  144. I have several past years of Kona color of year fabrics. Have a pattern to use making one block per color/year. Julep has been ordered to add to the blocks. My goal is to get the blocks started in February.

  145. Several years ago my daughter had me purchase a piece of asian inspired fabric that had this exact color predominately featured. I haven’t be able to find any companion fabrics to use with the piece. I am super excited to now have Julip to start building a palette to create a new quilt for her!

  146. I’m usually not a fan of green, but the Kona Julip color of the year for 2024 is absolutely stunning. I’ve downloaded the free patterns-Thank you so much for giving us the Robert Kaufman patterns from your FQS. You are so generous to us. I’m going to make the Duality pattern. I hope I win. That would be a great start for my 2024 quilting.

  147. I plan to make a disappearing pinwheel using the julep and either white or peach. I love the color! 🪡🧵✂️

  148. I LOVE green!! Duality would be my first choice, but t can’t decide on a second quilt. I will be using Julep in a couple of quilts

  149. Perfect for a topper on a small cabinet in my sister’s bathroom. Colors are lavender and mint.

  150. I am super excited about this color, Julip! I want to make a 2 color quilt. Also I want to participate in the Julip quilt a long. This color looks like it can go with the 2020 color of the year, Enchanted. This is a great background color.

  151. I’ll start the new year out simple and plan to make a baby quilt with Julip, such a yummy color!

  152. What a calming and welcoming color! I am going to do the second quilt shown because it looks like two patterns in one and it has such pretty movement to it! Thank you for the inspiration! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  153. Love the mint color! I can see it in a lot of the quilts I do. I may need a bolt for them all. 🙂

  154. I would like to use it as a background for a double wedding ring quilt.
    I think it would look stunning.

  155. This is my favorite color! I would use it as a background for a flower quilt or some new place mats.

  156. Julep is a perfect color for 2024 for so many reason…it is bright, cheery, and mixes with so many options! Can’t wait to use it in a new project 🙂

  157. Beautiful shade. Plan to do Duality, next spring. Finishing quilts for grandchildren and nephews. Gave one Christmas and giving one for a birthday today. Being 80 years, don’t send out pics of quilts. Not being technically inclined, don’t know hot to do that. Perhaps someone can give me instructions.

    Happy New Year

  158. I have a niece graduating this spring and this fabric would be a great jumping off point to get started

  159. I just learned that Julep is color of the year. I’d look for an antique two-color quilt pattern. I think Julep would be beautiful with just a white or cream.

  160. Oh my goodness! This color will go in my kitchen! I may put a border of it on my already hanging curtains. It will also be a background for a chicken wall hanging. I love it!

  161. I love this color so much that my family room walls are painted this color – okay, maybe a little lighter.
    I want to make the the quilt-along quilt. But, I will definitely be making the 4” Petit Four quilt/wall hanging. I love it it the Julep.

  162. I have been thinking of a two color quilt using Julep and white or off white. I love this color!

  163. I love that mint green fabric. I would make a beautiful Chandelier quilt with that fabric. Mint Green has always been one of my favorite colors.

  164. Pretty Spring Color! This would be so neat to make a new Spring Quilt! For Thanks a Great Giveaway!

  165. I really love the mint julep pattern. The colors used really compliment each other. I am a big fan of green and love Kona cotton. I pretty much use it exclusively for a lot of my background in my quilt projects. This color is so dreamy.

  166. I love the minty look of this color. I look forward to stitching something for my new Great Granddaughter coming in 2024.

  167. Julep is the perfect addition to my growing collection of Kona solids. I can see myself making a table runner using Julep as the focus fabric.

  168. Beautiful Color for this year. I am going to use this in a quilt as either the focal color or the background.

  169. I’m loving the color of the year!! I’m planning a table runner and a few table toppers for my living & dining room. I can’t wait to check out the free patterns, because I will probably add one to my project list

  170. I really love this refreshing color. I think it would look great with some 30’s prints for a cute baby quilt.

  171. I really think I want to do a two color quilt using Mint Jukep and white…but now to decide which pattern! ? ! ?

  172. I do like Julep in the Star Crossed pattern by Its Sew Emma for a frosty winter quilt or table runner.

  173. I will use this as a background for a memory string quilt (spider web pattern). Mint was a favorite color of my Mom’s and many of the strings coordinate with this lovely color.

  174. I just got an Alison Glass pattern called Timber. I’m incorporating some of this into a very bright rainbow version with a navy background.

  175. Love the Julep! I can see it with the quilt you (Kimberly) made with low volume square in a square paper pieced blocks. You use blue sashing. Hope I win! That would be fantastic!

  176. Love this color!! I would definitely use this in one of the 2 graduation quilts that I need to do for my twin nieces in 2024!!

  177. I love the new color for 2024. I would love to make the Mint Julep quilt. The colors are so soft and put. Thanks To Rey Kaufyfor the free pattern!

    1. Crazy auto correct! That should have said, thank you Robert Kaufman for the free pattern!

  178. I love this color! It reminds me of my first car, a 1956 Chevy. I’d make a quilt in memory of my mom and dad, who gave me that car.

  179. That Kona color reminds me of the mint green Vespa I’ve always wanted! I’d like to use Julip to make a jewel box quilt this year. So beautiful!

  180. Oh my goodness, this is a gorgeous color! I think I would be making a quilt with it and purple.. One of the free patterns..It is hard to decide which one.

  181. This shade of green is a wonderful blender with so many other colors. I really want to try it with some of the blues. A wonderful choice for color of the year!

  182. This is such a lovely color, it will be a perfect addition to so many quilt patterns! I am torn between the Mint Julep pattern and the Succulent pattern but I will decide soon I’m sure!! Thank you for this exciting prospect.

  183. This takes me back to my childhood when the small mint julep candies were my favorite ‘penny candy’ to purchase after turning in glass bottles! Can’t wait to try out the suggested patterns.

  184. Hmm…either the center for a log cabin quilt (maybe using one of the larger curvy log cabin CG rulers). Maybe a two color quilt with a softer appearance

  185. This color is absolutely gorgeous! I want to make something with it right now! 😍😍😍

  186. What a gorgeous color! I’m thinking it would be absolutely PERFECT for an easter table runner!

  187. I would use this layer cake to join in the quiltalong! Mint is the color of my great room walls! This would be the perfect color for a throw quilt for my couch! 🙌🏼💕💕💕

  188. Lovely shade of green Julep is. Sew many possibilities to make with it. I’m thinking a s raspy quilt using Julep as my background. Thank you for the opportunity to win a giveaway to start the new year off. In stitches

  189. That is such a beautiful color. It’s actually the one on my bathroom walls. We redid the bathroom a couple of years ago with this one. I find it soothing. I need to make a wall hanging to put on the door. LOL

  190. Will make a quilt using the Julep and adding navy to make a quilt for my daughter-in-law. This is her very favorite color and I’ve been waiting for just this shade of green. Thank you for making the color available.

  191. It looks lovely in the “plus sign” quilt. I’d love to put Julep in a snowflake design and a holly irish chain pattern. Its such a versatile color, love it!!

  192. I really like all the free patterns shown, but the Mint Julep is my favorite. I will start with that!

  193. Beautiful soft color. Would be perfect in a baby quilt. If I were to win, I would have to participate in your sew along. Thank you for all the great inspiration and videos.

  194. I would love to make a Succulent Quilt! I really like how al the shades of purple go with the Julep.

  195. Julep is such a soothing shade of green! Our son will be deploying for an extended tour soon, and a new quilt will be waiting for him when he comes back home. Green is his favorite color so Julep is definitely part of my plan !

  196. Since I enjoyed the Kona Calendar for 2024, I am excited to start ordering their fabrics; probably only on 10″ squares due to my retirement limited income. Bring them on!!!

  197. Love the new color! Can’t wait to make some half square triangle blocks with it. What a great color to bring a quilt together.

  198. What the world needs now, a soft peaceful pretty green. Julep delivers that. Thank you, Robert Kaufmann, for this beautiful shade.

  199. I plan to use it to make a baby quilt.. it is a perfect neutral color. It would also be pretty paired with some fun Lori Holt prints!

  200. That’s such a fresh, springy color. Blending it with other sea glass colors would make a great quilt for my bedroom, possibly a log cabin pattern

  201. Since Julep is the exact color of my Elnita ef2 sewing machine, I think making a sewing machine cover for her would be an ideal project to use those charm squares for! Plus, depending on how much I have leftover, a mug rug and the rest would be great in a scrappy quilt.

  202. This is a beautiful color and I love the quilt pattern pairing it with a lovely purple!

  203. I haven’t met a Kona Color of the Year that I do not like!  They are all such good choices! I love all things mint and this color is no exception. If I am the lucky one, I would make a disappearing hourglass quilt, that would showcase the color.

  204. Love this color! I think it would be perfect with Summer colors in a quilt for my daughter.

  205. You couldn’t have picked a color that I like more than this! I can’t wait to see it in person.

  206. I think this would be great for a background. I would make Amy Smart’s Sentimental Stars Quilt.

  207. I love the color purple so I would be definitely interested in sewing the Succulent quilt or a similar quilt.

  208. I would use this Kona Color of the Year to make a log cabin quilt, using the lovely green color partnered with a bright floral jelly roll.

  209. I am excited to start a 2024 Temperature Quilt using lots of shades of Kona Solids. Can’t wait! It will be beautiful

  210. If I were to make quilt with Julep, it would be Succulent swirls. I love the combination of the green and purple.

  211. That is my very favorite color. I think I would love to make a baby quilt using that color A Pinwheel block would be beautiful

  212. I’m new to quilting. Just completed my first quilt and have now started on a quilted table runner. I watched several of Kimberly’s videos while completing my first quilt….extremely informative and helpful.
    I would like to try using the new Kona color in a little pattern I have with whales that I’m hoping to do for my new granddaughter. It looks like a good color to use with ocean tones.
