    I like Blank black. It is the same shade no matter if you buy off 2 or 3 bolts. Most companies take all the colors they have left at the end of the day and dump them all together to get their black. Blank does not do that. They actually have a black dye. The same goes for their red fabric

    Great thread. My experience really shows that you should use the same black in a project. I wish I had a picture. My DGD is 18. I made a baby quilt for her with blacks and brights. Over the years, the blacks faded differently. You can REALLY tell they were NOT from the same bolt. Fortunately, I had carefully prewashed everything, and they didn't RUN.

    I love Kona black. It's all I use now. I never realized there were so many shades of black.

    I agree,
    Kona black is the best and a nice sturdy fabric to work with, I like it so much that I bought a bolt a few years ago and its still as Black as the day I bought it

    Blank Quiltings' Jet Black Eclipse is blacker than the Kona. Put them side by side and Eclipse wins everytime!

    True!! Yep! It is called Eclipse! It IS blacker than Kona. Put them side by side to see the difference. I have a bolt of Eclipse myself!
