    Fabric collections

    I am always looking for fabric with rabbits on it. Yardage or FQ, sometimes precut squares on eBay. Is there any special fabric you look for?

    I always look for more modern prints and colors. I love pigs so I am always on the look out for pig fabrics as I want to make myself a rag quilt using it.

    Asian fabrics call my name as soon as I enter any shop. I always gravitate to purples and greens also solids, prints, batiks - whatever. Don't get me started on Christmas fabrics...

    Just about anything that is tree related, autumn colors and not too flowery. I have fabrics from the 50's to current -- and I literally have many hundreds of yards of fabric. Its ridiculous, really -- but that's what I collect.

    I visited in Oregon about 2 yrs ago when I was just starting to collect. Every shop I entered I asked for directions toward any fabric with "sewing theme", needles, thread, sewing machines, etc. and undies, red hat fabric, batiks (oh all of them~~!!) some leaf prints, then anything fall colors, oh I had to send a box home to AL. Shipping was $40..so I bought a lot~! I have sort of refind my looking now, but still go for red hat and sewing things, batiks, and undies, guess I didn't narrow it down at all~!

    I love bright and cheerful. Red is my number one pick if I like it. I have a huge box of Asian prints and I don't know why I bought them. I don't care for them yet. Give me time. I'm starting to like Batiks. A month ago I had nothing to do with batiks. Now I love them. Crazy! I don't care for 30s print. I did for a long time and now I'm over it. But I'll get it back, I'm sure. I like the wild fabric. I don't like fabric that has "items" on them. No animals, cars, trees, food, etc. Not yet, anyway. Every time I say I don't like something, next thing I know, I like it. So, I have to say I don't like it right this minute. But I'm not crazy about Halloween print at all and am not sure if I ever will be. Too much black. I like black but not mixed with the oranges for some reason. I love, love, love Civil war fabric. My all time favorite. Okay, enough out of me.

    Roses, sweet florals that look shabby chic, 30s and feed sack, and I am starting to like some of the more modern stuff. I love the Modern Vintage line that Moda has out, and the California Girl line. But I almost always love anything that Moda puts out.

    My fabric addiction changes from whim to whim. Last year it was historical civil war fabrics, this year I am in love with William Morris style fabrics. Moda has a new Brackman line coming out in the early fall. I still do not like pale blues and red reds though, that has not changed.

    BLUES !!!! Has to be blue without any green. Hate green anything. Think of the 70's when everything was avocado green and harvest gold. *shudder*. Also like dragonflies. I have a tub full of dragonfly daze fabric that I'm itching to get my hands on right now.

    I went into the sewing machine store fir needles, stopped to look at a machine and the fabric had rabbits on it. I asked and was given several squares.

    And I thought I was the only one who liked rabbit fabric. I try not to go for the Easter prints, but rabbits in general. I also have a soft spot for roses, but don't find many of those that I care for.
