100% cotton. Just cannot be beat. Congrats

I love homespun fabric, which is made today in mills. It comes in checks, stripes, plaids, and ikats in earthy and mellowed colors. I use it to back doll quilts as it reminds me of a small old 1930s quilt my sisters and I used when we were little.

It is so hard to choose, but I love my cotton flannel quilts on cold winter days.

I love most fabrics but silk would be tops!

I love...canvas drop cloths. The kind you buy at the home improvement store. Must be made of mostly cotton, linen, natural fibers. A bit of synthetic is ok, but not more than 20%. Yes, that seems picky, but I have my reasons. I've made furniture slip covers, pillow covers, created my own designs with fabric paints and dyes for sewing into jackets, coats, even quilts! So looking forward to getting my hands on your new book, via your generosity or an order from Amazon! Thank you!

I love texture on fabric. I don't always know how to use it, but I love embroidery, eyelet, stripes, jacquard, swiss dot. And floral, usually small floral, but occasionally larger floral. As for fiber, cotton and natural fibers.

Congratulations on your new book! I love your previous book on quilting, mostly for the trouble you went to to explain your inspiration process!My favorite fabric is shirting cotton, but I love all kinds of other fabric, too.

anything polka dot catches my eye time and again, a steady favorite for over 3 decades now... I'm not sure it qualifies as a fabric, and I'm definitely not giving a reason why, but I hope it's enough answer.

My favourite fabrics are the soft jersey fabrics, the kind that babygros are made of, I've kept loads from when my little ones were babies and I've just been inspired by the hexagon quilt you have hand sewn, I think that one may be in order for my daughter who is 3. A memory quilt for her to keep!

Love love antique french Toile.
Cheers Kerry in Sydney

What a beautiful book. My favourite fabric is South African shweshwe.

Really looking forward to immersing myself in the glorious colour pictures that I know will be in this book

Fabric is like life - you can't live without it in any shape or form.

Indigo dyed cottons, dark blue, nearly black and shiny from dyestuff worked into the fabric.
And wool crêpes, as I love the drape of dresses made from that quality.

Congrats on the new book! LG, Bele

i LOVE THAT SO MANY COMMENTS ARE "AT THE MOMENT" OR CURRENT" BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THE FAVORITE CHANGES CONSTANTLY. mINE IS FELTED SWEATERS, i JUST MADE A QUILT BUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER AND ZIG ZAGGING THEM. iT TURNED OUT GREAT. (OOPS< CAPS LOCK WAS ON!)

I just love fabric, so it's hard to pick a favourite but at the moment 'on parade' by Sarah Jane as I have some to make into a cushion! and any from the Tilda range and Tanya Whelan are a couple of my current favourites! How exciting about your book I will definitely look out for it!

Old tweed, even from not great quality old topshop trousers. All the detail. Many congrats on another book, I still love 'Gentle Arts'. Thanks for the opportunity!

Congratulations on your new book. I love most fabrics made from natural fibers but my favourite is fabric knitted from wool.

I adore fabric and it's pretty tough to give a favourite. I suppose that if I was limited to a single supplier, I'd have to say Liberty. But I also love unbleached linen and plaids and dots and Kaffe Fassett and Kate Spain and Aneela Hooey and Moda charm packs and layer cakes and Japanese Zakka prints. Btw the book looks great!

Favourite fabric ? Just one? I am currently enjoying sewing with some beautiful Riley Blake cottons.

My current favourite fabrics are the fuchsia pinks, mustard yellows and deep heathery purple cottons that I have combined in my latest quilt. I am desperate to continue working on it but having just moved back from Australia it languishes trapped in a box and packed away in storage where it will have to remain until I can find a new home for us!
