    Favorite "black" material

    I am planning on making a king size star 2-color quilt using a black and shades of blue batik. What brand should I buy.

    I used to always use Kona for solids but recently I have tried Riley Blake solids that are just wonderful. I also like Michael Miller solids. I haven't tried a black in either of these lines though.

        Kona is my favorite for solids...not the Joann's Kona...it seems thinner, but what I get online is just wonderful. I do like the Bella Solids as well, but Kona is my favorite.

          I really like the "feel" of Bella Solids:

            Another vote for Bella solids - love how they feel.

                  Do all SOLID black fabrics pick up lint/fuzz? The ones I have purchased have been like that. I now stay away from buying solid blacks.
                  I buy from local shops.

                      I have only used Bella. I was wondering about michael miller solids. Massdrop has 12 yd bolt on sale right now. Comes to $6.92 a yard.

                      Anyone seen this in person?

                        I just did a Disappearing 9 Patch using Northcott ultra black: http://store.brooklynfabric.com/nort...id-ultra-black

                        I also like Bella Solids, but haven't tried their black.

                        FYI -- be prepared for lots of lint/fuzz (or pet hair!) to stick to and be seen on BLACK FABRIC!

                          Ok, before you buy, do take a look at the faux burlap line at Connecting Threads.
                          I bought the charcoal, because I did not want to use a solid black. And I love it.

                              I've not used the black but the American made brand solids I have used are really nice. Otherwise I like the Bella vs Kona. I think it's just feels nicer.
