    What is your favorite line of fabric?

    I decided today was the day to start getting my fabric organized. I had read Alaskasunshine's tutorial on fabric folding and thought it looked like a good idea. In the past, I kept all my fabric on the cardboards from JoAnn's. That took up too much room, so I decided to just stack them. Well, you know how that goes; you always want the fabric on the bottom, and everything gets messed up. I ordered the magazine sized boards from Amazon. So I am sitting here folding away, and started looking at the selvage. I apparently have two favorite manufacturers...Moda and Hoffman. Next is Timeless Treasures. And green fabric and fall patterns are winning the design war! Along with Christmas prints. I haven't started on batiks yet...there are a whole bunch of them just sitting on that shelf waiting for me to walk back into that closet and rescue them! What's your favorites?

    I agree with all three of yours. I tend to like bright light colors, more true than gray and Moda and Hoffman each do a good job at that. Timeless treasures I just love the designs they come up with.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I agree with you too. Moda is my favorite. Then I like Hoffman. I'm not sure after that.

    Red Rooster, Bernartex, Moda. That being said, I've seldom seen a fabric I couldn't adopt and bring home to join the rest of my stash.

    P & B., Moda and Timeless Treasures are my favorites but I also like Robert Kaufman. I seem to gravitate towards them first.

    Moda fabrics are usually the fabrics that catch my eye the most--I'm never surprised when I reach for a roll of fabric and discover it is Moda.

    Gee, the overall concensus seems to be Moda! I'm still folding, still finding Moda winning the race! LOL!

    Moda fabrics for me! Everything from Kansas Troubles to Holly Taylor designs. I love the look and the quality.

    Moda is always my first choice, and Ilove their Kansas Troubles. Thimbleberries is probably the best quality quilting fabric I have ever bought. Needs very little ironing, if any when it comes out of the dryer, has a lovely feel to it. but I have to say, I think I probably have some of everybodies in my stash! Oh and I love Marcus Bros, too.

    Moda is my very favorite. Unfortunately, for my budget, I like most other fabric manufacturers too.

    I love Moda, especially the Civil War prints. I was going to use them on a quilt and needed fat quarters but man I hated paying $3.50 for a fat quarter...so I've waited lol Also love Hoffman fabrics.
