    I am about to begin inventory purchases for my new store and I need to know what is your favorite color for quilting, least favorite color, and what is the hardest thing for you to find other than a long arm machine.

    Thanks for you help !!! :D

    I like blues, and purples. You will get so many different answers on this one. My least favorite is green.

    I love clear spring tones. Least favourite is muddy orange.

    Hardest thing to find- a good ideas book! (but now I have you guys ;-))

    i always have a problem finding a variety of purples, but i think a good variety of basic colors like blue and green are a sure bet for any fabric store :D

    If you want to be successful, you will probably want representations of all colors.

    Cream on cream is hard to find, as well as lighter colored batiks. I am always looking for these :D:D:D

    I have LOTS of medium and dark fabrics, but I always need to go purchase lights to make a quilt. I suggest you carry light fabrics in many lines, including batiks. A good quality light is getting more difficult to find, I looked yesterday and left Joann's without.
