What is your favorite fabric ever?

The month of May was crazy good.  and just plain crazy.  Here what happening in my sewing world.  I started a string quilt.  I am using the paper piecing tutorial found on Film in the Fridge.  So far, so good.  I did switch to using my walking foot to keep a smoother seam.  I will tear out the paper at the end.  I'd like to make this quilt pretty large so it will probably take me all summer.  I am using a lot of Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet fabric and a few random pieces from my stash.



So I realized that I have a favorite fabric.  One that I have used in so many projects I've lost count.  Here it is:


This is from Park Slope by Erin McMorris.  It is the perfect shade of light, bright green.  It seems to match everything I buy and I love the leaves, the circles, everything.  I have purchased it countless times and if I ever find it again I'll get more since I am not sick of it yet.

This might be my next favorite though...


So I would love to know...what is your go to fabric?  Do you have a fabric that you reach for in almost every project????

I think it would be anything from the blue colorway of Joel Dewberry's Chestnut Hill collection. I've snapped it up on sale here and there, and have a nice little stash--it has found its way into 4 separate quilts in the last 6 months!

Thanks for stopping by my blog Alyson - I had to return the favor. Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous! And lately I haven't been reaching for a specific fabric, but I've been incorporating some kind of polka dots into everything I make.

I use Kona Natural in almost every quilt, but the print I am always drawn to and never get sick of is Amy Butler Midwest Modern Fresh Poppies in both green and fuchsia. I just love them :)

I can't think of anything that is one I'd say I always reach for. However, I have favorites. Alexander Henry Mocca is one that I don't seem to get sick of. I also really love Anna Maria Horners whole group Good Folks. It's so hard to pick just one favorite!

I don't know if I have a favorite either- but I do love that green fabric from Erin McMorris too!
