    I usually use Kona mostly and I love it. Right now I'm using 4 solids in a quilt I'm making, 3 Kona and 1 Bella. Bella is good quality, but I think Kona is better. The Bella ravels a lot more than the Kona.

    I've used Kona, but never tried Bella. I guess I'll try it to see what one I like the best.

    I like the Bella, it has a much smoother feel than the Kona.

    I haven't actually kept a tally sheet but it seems they're about even right now. I've used both but have no preference. I like them both.

    I prefer Kona because I have never had a problem with fading of the darker color fabrics.
