    I buy Kaufman Kona at Hobby Lobby. Its wonderful, unlike the "kona" they sell at Joanns. The backgrounds for the blocks and the outer border are all Kaufman Kona cotton fabrics.

I've seen bolts of solid cottons in Joann's with "Kona" on the bolt end, but nowhere will you find "Kaufman" on that same bolt, and it's not the same good quality.

    If you still would like to use solids for your class, purchase the Kaufman Kona at your LQS and make sure it says "Kaufman" on the bolt. Or, you could use Moda Bella solids, which I personally prefer.
    What's the difference between the 2?

    Between Kona and Bella? I think the Bellas have a nicer, softer hand and drape. Lots of colors, too.

    Kona is a plain weave fabric and they donít have a right or wrong side. I personally really like using it.

    If you use the Kona Cotton it is WONDERFUL. Othe brands are the thin ones....

    I have used Kona {bought at Joann's} with coupon and it's a very good quality. Not flimsy at all.
