    When you are shopping for fabric do you find yourself leaning more toward snappy or layed back colors :?: In going through my stash I find that I go for snappy 100 to 1 unless someone has asked for a specific(sp?).

    I really like your question, it made me think. I do not have anything in my stash that would be considered bright. The closest I have is 1930's floral prints. I am a little intimidated by the brights, but maybe someday. :-D

    I would have to say snappy! BUt I also have to say I am always more attracted to warm colors such as reds...browns and pinks.

    Sitting here thinking about it, I tend to buy warm earthy colored laid back tones more often than the snappy brights. I think the only snappy colors I have are in charm pack like Moda's Clementine and Happy Campers or when I buy box lots and bright fabrics are in there.

    Snappy by all means. Batiks are my favorite. Orange used to be my least favorite color but now it seems everytime I buy fabric it has some orange in it.
