    i just looked that up and it does look very interesting. when i'm down in that direction, i'll swerve to get there.

    with websites so affordable and cost effective for businesses, why, oh, why, doesn't a business have a website of it's own? all i could find were those stupid ratings sites, where people give stars based on their own personalities and you don't really see what the store has to offer.

    I LIKE TO USE KONA COTTON WHITE WHEN I DO REDWORK OR BLUEWORK EMBROIDERY, RIGHT NOW AT HANCOCKS IT IS ON SALE FOR EITHER HALF PRICE OR 53% OFF TO CELEBRATE THEIR 53 YRS IN BUSINESS. TO ME IT LOOKS GREAT IN A QUILT, BUT WHAT DO I KNOW I AM A BEGINNER QUILTER.

    I live in GA and had never heard of Fabric Depot. Looked them up, and they have some really good sale items. Especially if you are just looking to expand your stash or if you need fat quarters. Looked really nice. Will have to "visit" again when more money is available!
    Hi Donnaree59, Where in Ga. do you live?

    I love Kona cottons and use them all the time. They have pretty 30's colors that I mix with 30's repro prints and I also use the black and the white. I have a piece of brown that I intend to use in my next quilt.

    I really like the Kaufman Kona cotton. I've used black and I used Kona Snow with my 30"s quilt. It is not a stark white, really blends in well with the 30's fabrics.

    watch out for the "1/2 yard" pricing.

    I used an off white Kona, 90 inches wide for the backing of my last quilt and I thought that it really made my quilt feel heavy. I'm not sure if I would use it again for backing. Did anyone else have this experience?

    I use it for my custom embroidery quilt labels. Also, I did a 30's quilt with it. You won't be sorry. Get a good brand though. JoAnn's is not that good.

    I love the Kona solids, but I don't think I'd ever use it for a backing. You're right, it's a bit heavy. Also it can't be combined with just any other fabric. Some other fabrics are too delicate or rather light weight for it. It does have its place though. And I find it very pleasing to use.

    I have used the Kona white many times and like it very much. I especially like the way it crunches up and gives that antique look after machine washing. You can't go wrong for that price! I think it usually goes for around $5.95/yard in LQS.

    I am using the Kona white (not the snow colour-tried that and it wasn't white enough for the 30's prints) for a 30's sunbonnet sue quilt and I like it, nice and thick, and the price is great too.
