    For some reason I'm just drawn to Moda.

    Yea!! someone else who loves Alexander Henry. I like a lot of different companies and designers but Alexander Henry is just the tops. I will frequent any shop that carries that line.

    No, she isn't new ... she designs for Moda Fabrics, she has for at least 5 or 6 years ... She's a popular interior designer, she has been doing home decor, fabrics & accessories for quite a while now. I haven't seen a fabric line of hers I didn't like! :)

    Robert Kaufman is my favorite. I can pick out his fabric without seeing his name along the side. I like Alexander Henry, Timeless Treasures also.

    Northcott fabrics are my hands-down favorite, but I also like much from Moda and Benartex (especially from Nancy Halvorsen). Also love Darlene Zimmermann's quilt designs.

    My favorite designer above all others is Kaffee Fasset. But I love the Alexander Henry Co. a whole lot. Their designs are right up my alley. The others would be the Michael Miller Co. and Laura Heine is another favorite designer, however I haven't seen anything by her in a long time. Maybe she went out of the business. I like Moda a lot too.

    Do you ever make anything out of his fabrics? I have a lot of them bought over time. I also have his quilt books. But I can't bear to cut the fabric. I just take it out and fondle it, then fold and reshelve it. I'm a little loony I think. :oops:

    My favorites:
    Marcus/Aunt Grace, Moda/Fig Tree, Micheal Miller/Dick and Jane, RJR/Everything but the Kitchen sink, and most floral by manufacturers. I am not hard to please, if it looks pretty and colorful, I'll buy it. Batiks are pretty too, but just starting to collect them.

    My first 'big' quilt was with Fairy Frost -- took 2-1/2 years -- I love it. I was lucky, one of the fabrics I used in it was a new one the year I started. There was manufacturing problems with it that I found in my fabric -- I was lucky -- caught it early, since I had decided to use it for the backing also. Found enough, it had been discontinued.

    Still love the fabric and plan on more uses in the future.
