Earlier this year, Robert Kaufman introduced a new Kona Cotton color that will be available exclusively for 2016. They call this their “Color of the Year” (COTY), and for 2016 the color is Highlight. I recently picked up 2 yards of Highlight and 2 yards of Black Essex Linen from the Intrepid Thread.
I think that Robert Kaufman is set to make an announcement for a challenge that will include using Highlight, so I wanted to have some on hand to be prepared.
Update: The challenge was announced this week, and I have also learned that Anne @play crafts and Adrienne @On the Windy Side will not be hosting a quilt challenge this year (they have hosted the Pantone color of the year quilt challenges in the past and we’re discussing using Kona COTY this year instead).
If you are looking for where you can purchase Highlight, check out the Intrepid Thread or the comments of the Instagram post above (several stores commented in the thread indicating that they have it in stock). I am curious what the announcement will say, and I hope I have time to add a project to my to-do list!
Linking up with Sunday Stash.
