    Kona cotton by the quarter yard?

    Last fall I purchased twelve colors of Kona cotton by Kaufman online, and was able to buy just quarter yards. Well, now that I'm finally stitching the quilt together, I messed up and need to replace one of the colors. But I can't remember where I ordered it, and now can't find anyone selling less than one-yard cuts. Anybody out there know where I can buy it by the quarter-yard?

    thanks bunches!!

    I've been ordering Kona FQ singles from Marmalade Fabrics website for $1.95 each. She has a large selection.

    unfortunately many places that sell fq's won't cut & sell straight 1/4 yards- & fq's often won't work if you need - are using regular 1/4 yard pieces (9"x42"- vs- 18"x21")

    have you checked Joannes? ours carry Kona solids- so does my local quilt shop & they will cut 1/4 yards for you.
    although i have noticed more & more shops with 1/2 yard minimum cuts.

    Favorite Fabrics sells by the quarter yard and carries Kona solids, though in limited colors.

    Yes, I definitely need a linear quarter-yard in Berry. But thanks for your suggestions!

    I think if you call the fat quarter shop they will cut you 1/4 yard.

    Dang, Berry, really?! Is this close enough? The dye lot is probably different, but it's Kona Cotton Solids color 1016, aka Berry. (swapped out photo for more accurate lighting but it's still overexposed)

    Are you trying to match existing pieces or replace them with the same color? If you think this will work for you, I'd be happy to send you some.
