    Or do you just buy for color? Steve expressed excitement over finding some favorite fabric brands at a local quilt shop--which is what prompted this question.

    If you have favorites--tell me what about them makes them so nice.

    I just received some Debbie Mumm yards from an ebay seller--very nice fabric. It's soft--silky. I love touching it.

    I tend to lean toward specific designers. They're like artists to me! Great designs, colors, etc. But truthfully, I haven't met too many fabrics I didn't like! :roll:

    So glad you like your new fabrics! Isn't that what it is all about? We're just textile junkies!

    I love them all and and only buy at quilt shops except when I am doing a charily quilt. I shop at Alco, Walmart, and Hobby Lobby for those. Sometimes it is the exact same fabric I see at quilt shops. At Alco it is under $4 a yard and top of the line designer and brands just a season or 3 old. Quilt shop fabric around here is running $9.75 a yard. On the subject have any of you seen the fabric and batting made of bamboo yet ?

    I just got some Benartex fabric which is an absolute pleasure to work with. I also like Moda. But I will buy anything that I like even if it is tricky to work with. I did a very nice project with the cheapest of the cheap fat quarters from JoAnns.

    I buy whatever catches my eye and do not care who it was designed by.

    I fell in love with the Marcus Brothers pansy fabrics. The cottons and flannels, purples, pinks, blues... Still have bits and pieces of them. Sigh... my husband probably took the company to court to make them stop printing the patterns hahahaha...
