I love the 1800's repros, soft muted fabrics with a cottage feel and I love red and gold. I think mostly what ever grabs me at the moment too.

I just love the fall fabric and christmas. However I've been collecting 30's and I do alot of reproduction for history quilts. I have alot of batiks which my stash has been growing. I just love it all!!!

I tend to go for the darker burgundy..greens..navy...and fall type of colors. I'm trying to break that habit and venture out of my comfort zone..oh no...now I feel the need to shop :mrgreen: maybe as I finish up the fabshophop..I'm sure I'll see something!

I like warm colors. All the fall colors. And anything that is a soft blue.

I love bright colors, pretty little "sprigs" of flowers, patriotic prints, cat prints, maroons -- oh, heck -- I just love fabric :!: :!:

I prefer tiny prints, all colors. I love white on white and white on cream too.

Great question. I am attracted to 1930's Reproduction, modern fabrics ala Heather Bailey and Any Butler, and last but not least, Shabby Chic type florals and patterns.

I like brights, batiks, leaf prints. Tend to run the other way from plaids. :wink:
