    Which brand of solid color fabric do you like best? And why? Is it the range or depth of colors? The feel? The way it washes? Or something else?

    I like Kona - it goes on sale a lot, has lots of colors, and works up nicely.

    Kona cotton is very good fabric & has lots of colors to choose from. That's what I buy.

    Me too. Kona seems to be what I lean toward.

    I usually try to avoid solids. I do not like working with them I prefer a tone on tone. If I need a solid it will be Kona

    Kona for solids, especially for a true dark black.

    i too prefer a little movement in my fabric and typically use moda marbles.

    when i do use a true solid its kona cotton and i like it because the color stays true after repeated washings.

    Kona gets my vote too, and I like the range - especially when they have several shades of the same colour. Mind you, my vote is probably influenced because it's the only one I seem to be able to get. Hancocks will send it here, but I have never seen it on sale, sniff, sniff, wiping tear away from eye.
