    Just curious what everyone's faves are. I usually am drawn to bright colors with modern prints and retro geometrics. Hot pinks, bright purples, turquoise, lime greens, yellows, etc. How bout you?

    I'm drawn to reproduction fabrics, especially 1800s and 1930s.

    Cotton..... :lol:

    Seriously, I have a bit of everything and I just started this stuff. It depends on who I intend on getting the quilt.

    The right shade and texture of the color I'm looking for.

    Mostly smokey blues and sage greens. I'm trying to steer out of my colorphobe state.

    It seems I'm always drawn to the lodge-y fabrics, like Pine Creek Crossing or Timber Creek by Holly Taylor for Moda. And flannels....oh my gosh! I'd guess probably 2/3 of my stash is flannels. They call my name! LOL! I just love snuggling up in a nice soft flannel quilt on my couch in the winter and watching TV with my dh! As for colors...deep reds, blues, golds, creams, sage-y greens, rust. Love it. Now you've done it...I wanna go shopping! I need more cottons! :lol:
