All depends on what QT you are referring to specifically.
Some were white and Black and the others were white and green.

Here is the manual that features the white and black. Bolens Lawn & Garden Tractors & Attachments - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums

The QS16 and QT16 was a black frame,dash and motor with white being the color of the hood fender and wheels.The QT17 and QT19 was a dark green frame,dash and motor with the hood fender and wheels were a off white like eggshell white.The color of my HT23 avatar is the color of the QT17.

So, while we are on the subject, what is the common source for the dark green frame paint? My HT23 needs it badly once the fixing up is complete.

I dont know a particular color but I do know you can take a sample piece to your local hardware store and they can scan it and make you the color.
Hopefully someone else will chime in with a particular brand and color
