    colors

    As I am looking at al the pictures of the quilts this morning I realize that the first thing that draws me to one are the colors in it. I just love the vibrant primary colors and the scrappy tops. Funny,my home and my clothing are mainly neutrals. After the color I then study the quilting. I am learning to like the heavily quilted tops but this has been slow in coming. What colors do you like and how do you quilt your tops?

    Color for me, too and bright at times. I have found in quilting that the color red is something I like. Until I quilted I really did not like red. Some of the old quilts I have seen always have a bit of red in them and look good, still.

    I am pulled in by "old" traditional patterns & scrappy quilts with muted colors - antique quilts really. In the stores I go first to the batiks (in all colors). I am so new that I like almost everything.

    I am drawn to brights and springy pastels. Pinks, yellows, oranges, aquas, etc. I tend to like simple quilting, though I can appreciate the artistry in intricate patterns. I also seem to be drawn to patterns with lots of white space.

    I love the colors of 20s and 30s fabrics. They seem so happy to me. So far things I have had quilted for me have been an all over stipple, which I love. I made a Yellow Brick Road quilt with fabric that has cats and dogs on it and is primary colors as backgrounds on the quilt. It is so cheerful, too. When I get it quilted I am going to see if the lady who does my longarming has a paw print pattern. Or maybe a mouse. Other colors I love are greens, blues, purples, yellows oranges. Batiks are another favorite.

    Color choice really makes a difference -- each member in our little quilting bee group is going to make an Irish Mist quilt top for our new project -- it will be interesting to see how different the quilts will look because of the different fabrics chosen -- basically there will be one light, one dark, and 4 medium tones for the quilt -- I'm looking forward to seeing the progress on each quilt!!

    I like winter/fall colors more subdued, less vibrant.
