Talk Back Thursday

Thank you so much to Lori, Mamafitz, Becky, Sarah E., Nicole and Carla for talking back to my confession last week! I asked about favorite fabric designers and, in case you can't tell from the picture above, googling all those designers left me drooling! ;)

Hmmm... Does that mean I was "droogling"? Drooling over google results? Quick! Somebody call Miriam-Webster! ;)

Okay, where was I?

So, let's get the "negative" stuff out of the way first, so that we can concentrate on the gorgeous images! Three people pointed out that (a) many designers focus on quilting cottons that have limited use in garment sewing and (b) "name brand" fabric is often pretty expensive. I completely agree with both points.

But, for some reason, I still love to feast my eyes on brightly colored, richly patterned fabrics... And last week's commenters provided enough suggestions to last a lifetime! Here, in no particular order, are their recommendations:

The names of the designers and links to websites are after each image:

Jay McCarroll (from Season 1 of Project Runway)

Finally, we got three excellent suggestions for fabric websites that feature great designers:

Thanks again, everyone! Now, please excuse me - I need to go wipe my chin... ;)
