Favourite Fabric Friday

One of my favourite-all-time-classic fabrics has to be Amy Butlers Lotus Full Moon Polka Dot (what a mouthful!!).

I have used this fabric in the different colourways in so many of my quilts now, and every time I use it I am reminded just how much I love it.

This fabric has been around for a long time now, but you can still buy it if you hunt around. I bought this little lot from Quilthome.

Do you have a favourite fabric that you just love to bits? Sarah of The Last Piece blog recently showed her favourite fabric here (check it out, she has made incredible quilts with it). What is your favourite?

I just ordered more of the red and orange also from Quilthome. Funny...mine arrived a few days ago and I just pulled out the orange to play with. Wishing I'd ordered the other colors. Perhaps another order is called for?

I have been SEARCHING for this fabric EVERYWHERE!!!!
Now I'm going to have to spend even MORE money on fabric.

I have been searching for Amy Butlers Lotus line for a while and I had been having trouble finding a good selection. I was so excited you posted that link! Thank you!

You know you love a fabric when you realize you bought it twice...I have a black polka dot that I have in yardage and fat-quarters! It works well with my 1930 repros and my brights...nice to find fabrics that play well with others.

I'll have to think about that one. I'm not sure I could pick one favourite. It's kind of like asking which kid you like best. I tell them each they are my favourite!

All your fabric posts lately are driving me crazy....so pretty!! I am very partial to these lovely polka dots!

Janet said...

I can't say I have a favorite. My problem is I love so many. I tend to gravitate to muted tones, secondary colors, and abstract prints. Your dots would fit in nicely.
