This lightweight cotton (4.35 oz/sq yard) is perfect for quilting, clothing, and crafting. It's an all-purpose solid reliably found in quilt shops and big-box stores like Joann's.
You'll frequently find it online in fat quarter and half yard bundles grouped by color, holiday, by (prolific) pattern designer, or as coordinates to go with a particular fabric collection.
Examples of each are below.
And yes, if you're interested, you can purchase a color card of all the Kona's currently available from either Fat Quarter Shop or fabric.com
108" wide Kona Solids for backings
There are also a limited number of Konas available in 108" wide yardage.
Keep in mind that when you're quilting with solid fabrics all your stitches show; there's no design to hide any tension issues or backing tracking.

This line of solids by Robert Kaufman has a "lustrous veneer of metallic coating", as described by Kaufman, on one side of their regular Kona.

Do you buy solid fabrics?
If so, I highly recommend you use a permanent marker—like a Micron pen—and mark the selvage with BOTH the manufacturer and Color/Color #. Then ALWAYS cut from the opposite end of the fabric, leaving the marking in place.
Use your phone and take a picture of the bolt ends to quickly capture this information when purchasing fabric at a shop.
Speaking from experience, it's much too easy to grab the wrong solid, only to realize partway into the project that you've used either the wrong color or worse yet, used two different, though close in color fabrics, and you see it only AFTER you've made 25 blocks.
