    I just realized that I have spent an unbelievable amount of time in the past week searching for Moda Bliss that I can afford. I am working on a quilt and I don't think I'll have enough to finish it, not only that, but I want to save what I do have (and needed to finish this quilt!) for innumerable other things I could make with it, including possible future quilts. If I had the money I'd literally buy bolts of it! Please tell me I'm not alone in this! What fabric are you obsessed with? :oops:

    I did the same thing with Bliss when it came out. I bought a whole bunch in about every colorway...and I didnt even have a pattern in mind. There was a sample of a quilt hanging there and I bought with that in mind, BUT they didnt have the pattern. So....I am now visiting my sister in Phoenix and will be going back to the shop that had the bliss, and will probabaly buy more of some of the patterns I liked. So.... I can relate!

    Girl Scout fabric! I bought just about every fabric in the line. The sad thing is I have yet to use it........but I am ready when I need it.

    Not a particular line, but since I started doing QOVs, I seem to look for patriotic fabric everywhere.

    For me, it is the 1930's reproduction fabrics. I loved the Chloe's Closet by Moda, but it went fast!

    not really a LINE, but used to buy all the 1930's when they first came out..have over 200 FQ's of them, then it was the Hoffman Asian prints..OY...I must have around 200 FQ's of those as well, then came the watercolor batiks...wow..do I have batiks...and currently it is Civil war repros which I have about 300 fq's and tons of yardage for!

    Strange these addictions..

    I love Moda's Blush collection. I have yardage, layer cakes, jelly rolls and charm squares. I even made a baby quilt (will post pictures when done) and scooped up ALL the scraps for later usage. Most of Blush was on sale during the Holidays so I made out like a bandit but will still welcome a heads up from anyone that finds some at a reasonable price.

    I'm a scrapper...so I don't really have a line I love. I did see some Julie Paschkis designs recently and I think I am in danger of falling for them! Especially the "In the Beginning" Folklorica series.

    Yes I have. And in fact, I bought a bunch of FQs of bliss at a store (not on sale) and when my friend asked for a bliss quilt, I almost bought new just for her quilt. But at the last minute I realized what I was doing and decided to use my bliss stash to make her quilt and if I still love bliss, I can buy myself some more. But in the meantime I have become obsessed with riley blake's sugar and spice and I am making MYSELF a quilt with the 24 fat quarters of it that my sister sent me.

    My obsession would be Buggy Barn, I had lots from three years ago, but am down to fat quarters or less. I love the colour blends and texture. And unfortunately, being on the fabric moratorium this year, there won't be any more for a while (sigh!!!)

    I'm afraid if I told you what fabric I'm obsessed with, you all would start buying it up too! Create a severe shortage!

    That's too funny :-P .....I have a number of favorites but Moda has to be my all time #1, Robert Kaufman, SSI, Northcott, Marcus Brothers but not necessarily in that order, plus several others....it depends so much on the designer for me. With all the topics on the board about any one of these lines becomming thinner or less that we are used to because of cotton prices...I feel so thankful we can purchase from members from those older quailty fabric lines and not lose any of the quality we are used to plus at an excellent price. It makes it really hard for me not to purchase from those older collections regardless of whether I need them or not....they are just to fabulous to pass on!
