    Themed Fabric Collections

    Earlier this year I was lucky to be gifted a fabric collection with a theme of dots. She also gave me the book by Mary Mashuta titled Confetti Quilts. She marked a couple of pages in the book with quilts she had planned on making and I'm in the process of making one of the quilts. Until now, I had not been collecting themed fabric, but now, I can't stop collecting dots.

    What kind of themed fabric to do you collect and can't get enough of?

    That is such a fun quilt! I find I'm really drawn to dots, as well. I've been trying to restrain myself, thinking I might have too many dots... but since you posted this fabulous pic, I may just let myself go completely dotty!

    That quilt is just SO cute! I love it!

    I have been collecting insect themed fabric and candy themed fabric. Some day I will get a quilt made from them.

    not really themed, but I enjoy collecting Kaffe Fassett fabrics when I find them on sale.

    Not too crazy about the pattern, but I do love the dots.

    I collect horse fabrics. I also collect by designer. Laurel Burch, Kaffe Fassett, etc. Your dot quilt is beautiful.
