HSTs for March Block Lotto

I used some Sisboom Poodle fat quarters from my stash and a few colored Konas to make 8 of these triangle blocks for Block Lotto this month.   I used a new favorite technique for triangles that I need to share soon and also bought some white on white fabric from my LQS to use as the background instead of white Kona.   When it came time to press the blocks, despite being cut on the grain correctly those colored Konas seemed the most susceptible to stretch.  I think it's time do some solids research now that there are so many options available.  Do you have a favorite brand...soft, doesn't stretch, not thinner or thicker than regular prints?
