A beautiful quilt starts with beautiful quilt fabric.

To help, we share oodles of new quilt fabrics all over this website to inspire you—to give you ideas—doesn't the prospect of new fabrics just make you drool?!!

Putting ALL those 100% cotton fabrics in one spot is helpful—especially when you remember something oh so clearly, but you just don't remember where or what it was called.

If you're hunting for something specific, I've grouped the fabrics in a couple of ways to make it easier for you to find what you thought you saw. Brands, seasonal or holiday, and by fabric type, i.e., batik or flannel.

Or simply settle in and enjoy all the temptations your favorite fabric manufacturers have laid before us. 

Click any of the buttons below to navigate to the quilting fabrics quickly.

There are more than 1000 collections of quality 100% cotton quilt fabrics to choose from. The kind you find in your local quilt shop. This number grows weekly.

Summer fabrics are making their way into the shops. Yummy colors and kitschy motifs abound!

Aren't quilters lucky to have such a fantastic selection to pick from?

Meme: Question: When Does a Quilter need a bib? Answer: When looking at new fabric, of course!

What Quilter doesn't love free patterns?

I've checked the manufacturers' websites for free patterns available for the quilt fabrics shared.

Those download links go directly to the manufacturer's website if I was successful.

Unfortunately, because I haven't made these patterns, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the directions. That doesn't mean there's a problem. It's just being honest.

Most fabric manufacturer's share free quilt patterns just like Moda does here.Most fabric manufacturer's share free quilt patterns just like Moda does here.

Make it a habit to check the manufacturer's free pattern page for any updates or corrections to their free offerings BEFORE downloading.

Best practices for us quilters means making a sample quilt block, especially if you're committing to a large fabric purchase.

That's good advice here, too.

If I've found a commercial pattern using the fabrics to make the sample, you'll find a link to it included after the fabric's description.

A word about the link-buttons

Click here to go to our Quilt Store Directory.

Each link to the fabric is a colored button that tells you where the link takes you. 

The links to these quilt fabric suppliers are affiliate links, which means I make a small commission on the sale (without any increase in price to you).

These commissions provide me with an income to continue to provide all the free content that you enjoy on the Generations Quilt Patterns website.

IF you prefer to purchase from your local shop (if you're lucky enough to still have one), simply take down the fabric line information. Give them a call directly to see if they carry it now or if the new fabrics are on order.

I appreciate your continued support of this site.
