    Question What is your favorite black fabric?

    In need of a good solid black fabric. Am considering an "Amish Black" one, but would appreciate hearing from others what they've used and been happy with. All replies will be appreciated.

    Look at the two next to each other - see the difference..the MM is much darker.

    I like Bella Solids by Moda. It's a bright, rich black.

    Maywood Studios Black Magic - a double-dyed black, so it's very very black.

    Huge thanks to all comments. I ordered Michael Miller's black. Good to know what others have used and liked for future purchases.

    I avoid a totally solid black and navy blue. I made a patriotic quilt with a solid black and it picked up every piece of fuzz known to man. Even after it was bound and washed. It was like velcro. Now I find a tone on tone that reads black but is not solid.
