Who are your favorite fabric designers?

Title says it all! Please feel free to include big fabric designers, old favorites, trendy new designers and small-scale designers - everything goes. Also, feel free to link images.

Oooh, I love fabric! For blenders, I really like Patrick Lose's prints. I also like many of the Kaufman (sp?) prints. And batik fabrics--I don't know remember off the top of my head the designers, but in general, I start looking at batik fabrics and just want to get a whole bunch of them. I'd also really like to get some Laurel Burch fabrics; I haven't worked with them yet.

 

Also, fabric with snowflake prints or celestial prints, regardless of designer, always catch my eye.

 

Where do you find vintage fabrics? I've never used vintage fabrics, but I think it would be so fun to incorporate vintage fabrics into things.

Our town has a lot of vintage shops and they often have vintage fabric. Down the road, I plan on having a little shop with fabric, including vintage fabric. Oh, and Etsy I'm sure has lots. 

 

I am IN LOVE with block printed fabric, which is so hard to find in the States. In my dream world I'd spend a few months in India with my kids shopping and commissioning block printed fabric. Heaven!!

Thanks for the ideas on the vintage fabric; I'm going to start looking.

 

And traveling to India looking for fabric sounds awesome. After India, I have a list of other countries that I'd go to as well!
