    I've think I'm finally over the focus fabric craze that I've been in for the last few years and have started buying more solids and blenders. I guess I need stuff to work with the big chunks of focus fabrics I have.

    However, I'm not buying much, just trying to use up some of the stash. I keep finding myself pulling out the blues, so I would say that's my current favorite.

    So, what's your current favorite? What are you buying and what are you using up from your stash?

    Repro fabrics just can't get enough of them.

    I sound like a broken record lately. LOL!! But I love the reproduction fabrics. They represent a simpler time in life and that appeals to me.

    OMG - I still love the color green but trying to incorporate other colors - right now I am on a patriotic kick and starting to really love those bland civil war quilts - usually I am a bright, modern fabric type of girl.

    Civil war fabrics. It's not my typical choice, but lately it's just what I want to do.

    I've gone Civil War repro crazy - it took me a while to warm up to them, but once I found some of the shocking colors that were available back then, I've been enchanted.

    Bubble gum pink, poison green, cheddar and chrome yellow, turkey reds, turquoise and purples to mix with brown and grey and cadet blue. :)

    I love Batiks and Stonehenge. I am trying out new fabric lines and colors and making purses has really helped me with this.

    I have been using bright bold colors from my stash had a lot of purples and made a drunkard path quilt with these and a tone on tone white to tie it together. I just need to finish the binding.

    Right now, I am drooling over Stonehenge!!!! It's a good thing I am still overseas in Vanuatu for another 7 or 8 weeks, or I would mortgage the house to buy up 10 yards of every one of the 100 colors!! However, it should still be around when I get back------

    I tend to go for the bright cheerful whimsical look, but I love the 30's repo, I have an itch to make a nice batik, and ohhhhh the autumn colors and prints with a splash of purple, too many choices, I just can't narrow it down. So much pretty fabric.........

    I Spy fabrics for my grand baby Juliet and nieces and nephews. I am also working on multiple millitary donation quilts, so more muted patriotic colors. I also need tone on tone like Moda Marbles as I used up all Patrick Loose tone on tone marble I used to have in my stash.
