This started as 'My All Time 10 Ten Fabrics' but after much indecision i've had to change it to my 'Current' top 10, as there is no way I can fit every fabric I have ever loved into 10 spots. So my caveat is they are fabrics from the last year.....and not ones that I haven't had in my hands yet (so not the lovely fabrics on order).....and also i've had to cheat on one as well - nevermind :)
At 10, and ok this is not going to blow the world away but it is a lovely little rose print from Tanya Whelan. I look at a lot of fabric and I don't think anyone does rose florals as good as Tanya. From the Darla collection - Rosie Dot Blue (I could also have chosen red or pink!).
Number 9, I sooooo love Alexander Henry (could easily put a top ten together just of AH prints alone) and Thunder Flower is just brilliant.
8. Eiffel Tower by Paula Prass. When I had this in my shop no one bought it! Secretly I was very happy and intended to make some curtains from it for my work room. Then over a couple of weeks it sold out. Gutted! I really love any prints with structures or buildings and the turquoise and red is inspired.
At 7 is the wonderful Patty Young. All of Patty's fabrics are great and she is a master at geometric prints. This is my favourite, now sadly out of print but I do have the same print in red coming soon (and am looking forward to seeing it).
Number 6 is Hoodie's Medetai which I think is fab.
5. I've gone for Saffron Craigs Softies. Not both softies mind, just the Koala. I say that as the Owl softie is the most popular and the poor Koala gets left behind and I feel sorry for him.
At 4 is Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks. Again I could choose any pattern and even the Folksy Flannels but representing the whole range of flannels and voiles is Forest Hills Sweet - gorgeous!
Number 3 (and see if you can spot the cheat) is everything by sproutdesign. I love them all and just can't choose!
At 2 (nearly finished!) is from the very sadly discontinued Wonderland collection by Momo - Rabbit Hole in Sugar. All gone but I have one quarter meter left which I know I will never make anything out of because it's great just as a piece of fabric.
And my Number 1 (this week anyway) is Inked by Alexander Henry.
It's funky and has attitude - what else do you need in a fabric?!?!
Feel free to argue your top fabric into the Top Ten!
