    Do you ever get stuck on one color scheme?

    I have been sewing black/white fabrics in a quilt top and started a second one using the black/white pattern with red. Also using the black/white fabrics for the block of the month too and find that I still have so much black/white fabric in my stash. What is wrong with me that I keep purchasing black/white fabrics? It seems everytime I go to fabric store I see one or two that I don't have and buy to add to my 'collection.'
    Do others do this or have done this before?
    I have other colors I am using to, but it just seems that the black/whites stick out to me in the fabric sections!

    Working with black and white makes choosing other colors to go with them very easy. I also love black and white in quilts and have to make a conscious decision to not use black or white in a quilt. I've gotten lazy and having black and white only or with 1 other color is easy. Challenge yourself to make a quilt with no black or white in it. Make another color, like red, your neutral!

    With me it's green. I have more green fabric and thread .....
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I am stuck on Civil War and 30's. But that's okay here, DH loves them both too!

    I find that I have a problem with a certain line of fabrics, not so much a certain color of fabrics. I love Kansas Troubles fabrics and buy the entire line of the fabric just so I have it. I don't even have a pattern in mind when I buy the fabrics. Must be an addiction. LOL

    Don't call it 'being stuck', call it 'working in a series' or your 'black and white period' like Picasso's Blue Period. Very artistic.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I love pink and green together - so those two colors always jump out at me. I have a lot of pink and green scraps and just can't turn loose of them........lol
