Favourite Fabric

Whilst browsing some of the many quilting/patchwork blogs out there in blogland, I have noticed that how we quilters quickly fall in with one particular fabric whether it be a plain solid (the must go to charcoal or white or cream etc) or print (the green polkadot on pink or multicolour stripe), or even a complete collection.

For me, it must be Makower’s Elizabethan collection, of which I just have these…

My 2nd favourite collection is Makower’s Bloomsbury collection, because it is so close in style to the Elizabethan collection:

I have not even used the Bloomsbury fabrics at all. I made a quilt with the Elizabethan fabrics in the same pattern as my Autumn Waterfall, sadly I never took a picture of it.

I had initially brought the Elizabethan fabrics as they reminded me of a portrait of Elizabeth I at the time of the attempted invasion by the Spanish Armada (particularly the canopy of her sedan). The Bloomsbury fabrics I brought when I tried to find more of the Elizabethan ones, not realising how some of the fabrics from both collections went together well.

So what’s your favourite fabric or fabrics?
