  42. I don’t remember the names, but I just did a beautiful stitchout on tangerine Kona with Golden Yellow aurifil. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  43. Any Kona cotton paired with Aurifil thread would be a good combination! Right now I’m loving gray with aqua or yellow. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

  45. I would love to use a deep golden color thread on the gray tone Kona solid. I love that combination of color!

  46. I love the light gray Kona solid and matching gray Aurifil thread. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!! I hope I win!

  48. I have in my hand Aurifil 5016 which is an Olive green and it would stand out on a Kona solid black fabric.

  49. Hot pink fabric with lime green thread. but really they are all beautiful, and who wouldn’t want to be a winner.

  50. I love the bright rose colors and the blues! Can’t get enough of those colors. Then you have got to throw in some greens and yellows and oranges…just want all of them to caress and dream on, then we’ll get down to the cutting and sewing some fabulous baby quilts for 4 little granddaughters.

  51. I love Kona gray and Aurifil white. What can I say, I love neutrals because they make the colors pop.

  52. Love the grey krona cotton and my favorite Aurifil thread, now that is really hard but I guess any of your purple shades would be my choice or a deep red yum.

  53. I don’t have a favorite combo. I just love to play and see what inspires me. I’m loving all the new colors! Great giveaway!

  56. My favorite Kona color is “Snow” (I use it the most!) but I also love and use many others! So versatile! I have used the more neutral Aurifil thread colors currently (like Natural White or Lt Grey) because I use it for piecing but would love to try some of the other colors for embroidery/applique! Favorite Aurifil is currently Natural White.

  57. Wow! Super cool! Love the solids! Hard to pick my fav…maybe the greys. Auriful is the best thread. I have a number of spools but always need more.

  63. I use the very light grey and off white all the time to piece. No other thread compares. It is so hard to choose one favorite of Robert Kaufman as there are so many choices. The quality is sublime.

  64. I have not had the change to use any Auifil thread yet but I plan too! All of the new fabrics from Robert and Kona! It’s so hard to choose a favorite!

  65. What yummy, yummy colors! You sure chose some that are on my “have to have” list! Congratulations on your 30th anniversary! Quite an accomplishment!

  66. Love the new colours, Limestone or Cobblestone in Kona are my choice, because choosing just one is too hard. Having all 18 new Aurifil threads I can see that some of the new greys named or not named yet will beautifully with this fabric.

  67. Totally COOL! Love the colors and would love to win threads and fabric bundles. What a great quilt that would make. Thanks!

  68. There isn’t a color I don’t like. It’s like asking you which one of your children should you abandon. Don’t make me choose!!! I can’t do it.

  69. My favorite combination is Aurifil 4663 paired with Kona Bahama Blue as the Aurifil is variegated the stitching on the fabric is lovely.

  70. Kona grey and aqua Aurifil sound like an awesome combination! I’ve yet to try the aurifil thread. Maybe this will be my chance! Thank you for all the beautiful Kona fabrics!

  71. Favorites….changing all the time. But today, I’m loving that robin’s egg blue. Thanks for this great opportunity.

  72. I’m writing this is the bath so don’t have the exact names but I had great results with a teal kona quilted (by machine) with a variegated baby blue in 12wt cotton. It gave a beautiful result which I turned into a tote for my daughters friend x

  73. Those blues. I must have the blue ones. All the blue ones. 😀 Are you feeling my theme here? I would love to have all of these and I know just what I’d do with them too!

  75. I have a variegated aurifil: Limon di Monterosso (4658) that I have almost used up – I especially liked it on a warm gray backing that I used, something like the new Limestone Taupe Kona.

  76. Cherry Pink/Hot Pink/ Cerise whatever you call it that deep delicious passionate colour just says YES to me! Paired with a medium gray or an ink navy thread? YUMMMM!

  77. How do you pick one color combination from 32/30 choices. Having said that, kind of love bright green, citrus green with turquoise/aqua/peacock. But seriously, how could you go wrong with color?color?color? Yum! Pick me! Please!

  82. Thank you for this great giveaway. The colours are awesome. There are so many things I could do with these beautiful gabrics and threads.

  83. I would pick Kona Titanium and pair it with a slightly darker shade of Aurifil or even black(sorry, I don’t have that shade and can’t seem to access the color chart of the web site).

  84. Kona Snow with Sea Grass Green. Thank you so much for the great giveaway. To win this would be awesome indeed.

  85. What an awesome give-away! Beautiful fabrics (all of them!) and coordinating threads! Who can choose!?!?

  89. What a great giveaway!! I just finished an I Spy quilt, using Kona Lipstick Red for the sashing. Beautiful! And I buy Kona Black and White by the bolt. I piece exclusively with Aurifil; 2312 and 5021 (Ermine and Light Gray) are my favorites!

  90. I have a bolt of Kona Snow that I just love and use exclusively Aurifil thread. My fav thread color is any tone of neutral grey that sinks into the fabric.

  91. FANTASTIC!! What a great selection of colors..the possible combinations are wonderfulto consider. Thanks for the chance to win, Robert Kaufman and Aurifil.

  92. I don’t have color numbers but my favorite color combo is Tangerine orange fabric with Neon Green Thread. So bright and fun. Thank you for this chance to win. Take care and God bless, Cory

  93. Too hard to pick a favorite combo … I love all the colors of both Aurifil thread and Kona cotton! Probably most used is 2600 and Kona cotton Silver or Ash.

  94. I love all RK Konas, but school bus is my top fav. I love it paired with any Aurifil of the Caribbean Dreams bundle. Thank you for this great chance!

  95. Apart from a couple of bindings I’ve only used white kona, and I’ve never used Aurifil. I usually go for a white or cream thread, though because it goes with everything.

  96. I never owned Kona solids until now! But I really love the whole line! My favourite would probably be some darker grey with matching Aurifil in blue tones.

  97. I love to mix the blue fabrics and threads. Just enough to contrast and add depth. Pick a blue, any blue and I am a fan.

  98. Bleach white and 2610 are my go to combos (I like to combine the whites with brights), but I love everything. And thanks for the super fabulous giveaway. I’d be over the moon if I won. Love Aurifil and Kona!

  99. My go to Kona & Aurifil combination is Kona Snow & Aurifil 2024. I also love Kona Medium Grey & Aurifil 2605. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  100. Would love to actually see these fabrics and threads in real life. We just don’t have them available in Australia brick and mortar shops

  101. I love Kona and Aurifil even more together! My favourite colours are the teals and turquoises, especially Ultramarine!

  102. I can’t possibly pick just one combination of colors–that would be lke choosing your favorite child! 🙂 Gorgeous colors!

  103. I love all Kona fabrics, always have black and snow on hand. Aurifil thread is the best, love all the colors. I don’t have a favorite combo yet, as I am fairly new to quilting and using this fabric and thread. Love that you are having this giveaway, and would be thrilled to win it!!

  104. There is something about a quilt made from solids that just reaches out to grab me. My 1st quilt was all brights for a baby with bright variegated thread.

  105. My favourite Kona solid is Malibu blue & my favourite Aurifil thread is N°2810, Turquoise. Thanks for the opportunity to win a fabulous combination! 🙂

  106. OMG I’ve never seen such an awesome giveaway! Those colors are to die for – drooling big time!! Thank you for the chance to win 🙂

  107. I just love all the colors so much. I’m not sure I could choose. I really love raspberry with Apple green and turquoise is pretty awesome too.

  108. I Love Army Green Aurifil and Dahlia Kona Cotton. I think Aurufil are the Best Threads Out There. I LOVE the Summer Colors Line in Kona Cottons! 🙂

  109. I love all the solids. One of my very favorites is the Regal Blue. I can’t tell you the matching thread as the color links on Aurfil’s site do not work. It really would depend on what I was making and how I decide I would want to quilt it, what color I would choose. I might go with a varigated blue or a matching blue.

  110. I’m a big fan of neutrals, so I’m leaning toward Kona in Cobblestone…. but for some reason I can’t seem to get over the Prussian Blue either. As far as Aurifil goes, I can’t decide. Can I just have the whole box of neutrals?

  111. I love the variegated graphite from Aurifil. I just finished using it with Kona Pepper which has to be the my fav combo so far!! Can’t really go wrong with either though. Kona Snow is a staple and I use Chalk Aurifil often! Cheers for the amazing chance 🙂

  112. Right now I love the pale pink- both the fabric and the thread, but I really love all of them except gray.

  113. Love it all! It is so beautiful to look at all together. I am partial to blues, so I will say that at least for today, I’m loving the bright aqua fabric and thread. We’ll see what I’m loving tomorrow!

  114. Gosh, let me wipe the drool off my chin! I like Kona coal with Aurifil thread #2605. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

  115. Thank you Aurifil and Robert Kaufman for this wonderful giveaway! I am enamored with all go the newly introduced Kona colors and especially love the new blues that were added. The range of blues that are now available is incredible and the Aurifil thread complements it whether you’re using it with silver, white, variegated or matchie-match.

  116. I buy white, black and Snow Kona Cotton by the bolt. I love pink thread on any color Kona cotton. Pink is an amazing thread color because it can be the star to the understudy.

  117. Kona Silver with Aurifil 5006 are quite pretty. Thank you for this fabulous giveaway – someone (maybe even me!?!?!) is going to be VERY happy!

  118. I have yet to use the aurifill thread, certainly winning this would give me a chance to finally usee this great thread I have always heard about. My favorite color from kona cotton are the blues, since blues are my favorite color.

  119. My favorite Aurifils that I use all the time are the white(2021) and light grays (2600). I use them with every color of Kona.
    BUT recently I used Aurifil #3910 which is a yellow variegated thread and I used it on white Kona and it really popped. I loved it. I think it’s my new favorite.

  120. Yikes… so many wonderful choices. Brown and teal colors are my favorite combos with some coral thrown in!!

  121. This is a great giveaway. I’ve not used any of your products so far but I would love, love, love to true the purples

  126. Based on the name RK Kona Cotton gave the a new color – it instantly became my favorite: SANGRIA (K001-481) with the matching Auriful thread color.

  127. Aurifil thread is my absolute favorite choice of thread and I have two favorite colors – 2600 and 2309. My favorite Kona solid color would be a very light gray to use as a background color.

  128. It is almost impossible to pick a favorite color. They are all so bright and beautiful, but TODAY my favorite is Jamaica (dreaming of the beach). Thanks for the amazing giveaway

  129. I love the purple hue colors of Kona Dahlia and Aurifil French Lilac. Next is pinks and all pastels or brights
