    Okay...so I like purple...

    I was at a guild workshop last weekend where there were 16 quilters who had signed up for the class. Each had such lovely fabric, for what to be a "quick way to make a Trip around the World."

    As we walked around admiring progress, I always heard the same comment "Well, of course. Yours is purple." A few of the others had selected purple as one of their 6 fabrics, but I was the only one who had 5 purples.

    But I really like purple! At the same time, I did admire the choices around me. Maybe next time I will branch out and try a non-purple, but I doubt it....

    Do you have a color that you just HAVE to use?

    Oh, here is the top. I just finished it....and I REALLY like it. Can't go wrong with purple.

    For me it is blues, most of my quilts have blue in them somewhere, even if just the label!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I use and enjoy all colors, that being said I am really tired of using pink, purple, and lime green! I have 6 grand daughters and 2 daughters who just love these colors in quilts, cloths and even curtains. A few friends who also asked me to use these colors for them. I need a break! Am only going to make guy quilt for a while! LOL

    Your quilt is lovely.

    I love purple . . . and blue, and green, and red, and pink, and gold, and grey, and brown, and, oh well, I love them all.

    Mine tends to be brights and jewel tones rather than a specific color....but I really do have a variety.

    Mine seems to be rich reds and greens (think Holly Taylor or Kansas Troubles fabrics by Moda). Add in some gold, creams and blues and that seems to be what my quilts are when I make them for me. I CAN, if I have to, use other colors when I'm making quilts for my friends and family, lol. I'm also very fond of flannel. At least half my stash is flannel. I think I just like to pet it!
