Kona Color of the Year 2024 – Mint Julep

The Kona Color of the Year for 2024 has a decidedly springy bent to it. This is the year of Mint Julep, a very pretty pale blue-green that looks as pretty with pastels as it does with neons. We’ve put together 7 patterns, including a couple of free quilt patterns, for you to make your own Mint Julep quilt. 


By Sew Mariana

55” x 68”

Go high contrast with the Corolla pattern from Sew Mariana, with pinks and oranges. The four petaled flowers seem to float against the Mint Julep background.

Duality – FREE Pattern

This free pattern shifts between two colors with a simple pattern and uneven half square triangles to create a pretty shimmer effect.


Mint Julep – FREE Pattern

By Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman

Shoo Fly blocks in mint and coral move against a white background in this classic and free quilt pattern. It’s the perfect quilt for spring, don’t you think?


Star Adventure

By Then Came June

How about adding some neon to Mint Julep? Then Came June added Kona Wasabi and Acid Lime for an intense color combo. The stars make it easy to batch sew and put together quickly.

Play with negative space with the Vintage Lace pattern from Lo and Behold Stitchery. This pattern creates a beautiful overall pattern with some simple and easy half square triangles.
