    Just wondering... what's your favorite brand of quilting fabric, and why?

    Is it the texture of the fabric, or the quality of the printing, or just the way their designs tend to look?

    (If you can't pick just ONE brand, it's okay to name a bunch of 'em!)

    I don't generally pay attention to manufacturer but I do like the Civil War repros by Windham.

    My youngest son seems to prefer Moda. I took him with me when I was buying Civil War fabric. He was trying to help by picking out fabric he liked and coincidentally, almost every bolt he picked was Moda.

    If I had to only pic a few, I'd say:

    Kaufman - fusions & batiks
    Hoffman - batiks
    Clothworks - Laurel Burch (the nicest fabric I've ever felt!), Sue Zipkin collections

    I really like Northcott, but I have to say my current favorite is anything from Jinny Beyer. I love the feel and she has amazing prints and colors.

    I don't really have a favorite, I sort of let my eye lead me.

    I love the feel (hand) of Northcott--so silky. :thumbup: Their colors tend to be more clear and white than other manufacturers. Hoffman's also have a silky feel, but often times do not care for their designs (a personal choice). Moda is also good--very dense weave. But when making miniatures (I don't paper piece), the good quality slightly lighter weight fabrics work better--less bulk in seam allowances.
