Kona® Illustrator Swatches File Updated

UPDATE: See new blog post and files here.

A while back I put together an Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop Swatches file of Kona® Cotton colors. This file makes designing quilts easier in Adobe applications. Now Robert Kaufman has a whopping 303 Kona® Cotton colors!

Updating the file to add the new colors has been on my to do list for months, but thanks to Anne Sullivan at Play Craft's the file has been updated with all off the current Kona® Cotton Colors. Thank you so much Anne! You can download the new file below and I have a video tutorial on my past blog post that explains how to use and install the swatches.

Not only did Anne spend hours adding Kona® colors, but she also created swatch files for American Made Solids, Art Gallery Pure Elements, Free Spirit Solids, Michael Miller Cotton Coutures, and Moda Bella Solids. You can download these other brand swatch files on the Play Craft's tool page. She also has some other tools like the Palette Builder and Color Play to help you with color in quilting. 

Happy designing!
