    Just to make it clear if it has Kona and the registered trademark Konaź Cotton . It is Kaufman Kona. Kona is a registered trademark by Robert Kaufman and no other company.

    #4 Legacy Studio solids 100% cotton
    #5 Kona solids 100% cotton


    if you get #3 Country Classic 100% cotton get extra it shrinks a lot ( my experience was with black)

    I vote for Michael Miller's jet black or a Kaufman Kona - remember a lot of fabric producers color their fabrics that do not sell black and are not good for a lot of washing. When picking black fabric always go with a brand name.

    My experience with Michael Miller's black - it shrinks over two inches width of fabric.

    My experience with the tea-dyed roc-lon muslin - it said 'pre-shrunk' on the end of the bolt - NOT!

    I definitely recommend shrinking this stuff before cutting. it.

    If this is a queen, I would want the 108" wide fabric. I don't like to piece my backs unless I have to. Joann's sell 100% cotton in solid colors that is 108" wide.

    Your quilt top is 100% cotton, so your backing should also be 100% cotton. This way the fabrics shrink the same.
