I use what ever I have, and that was sent to me. I did get a half yard of kona musilne with a coupon, and the feel of it is great, and after I washed it, it was still nice feeling and thick. Good luck and God bless. Penny
You can't go wrong with Kona from Kaufmann or Kona Bay white on white. When I had a hand dyed cottons for quilters, very small business, I only used Robert Kaufmann or Kona Bay, the quality was the best and with all the work it takes to dye, why skimp on the quality. The brand was even a selling point.
I use white Kona Cotton. I never use the white on white anymore. It is hard to needle through and I made the mistake of using it as a backing fabric and went through about 20 machine needles while doing my Free Motion Quilting. Long arm quilters hate to work on quilts containing white on white that is painted on. After 20 years of quilting, I am learning so much about this wonderful art form in the last couple of years since joining this forum.
Try Quilter's Only or Kona solids. Kona also makes a premium muslin, which feels awesome. I'm not a big fan of the Country Classic--it's not as nice as the other broadcloths.
I recently bought some Kona muslin at JoAnn's and I like it better than the Moda muslin I had bought before. It seems to be a bit more substantial than Moda's. And at JoAnn's, it was cheaper than Moda from my LQS.
Just saw this thread. Has any one mentioned the Country Classics Solids that is on sale for 50% off now at Joann's. What's your opinion about this fabric? (Regularly $3.99)
Thanks for the insight into the "starkness of the white" concept, a great help to someone like me who is not quite a beginner but one who does not consider herself to be intermediate. YET! Appreciate all the good comments and mentoring that goes on here.Originally Posted by Holice
