    I love the autumn colors as my house is country (brown, orange, yellow, green).

    I am working on a scrappy disappearing 9 patch (D9P) made from fat quarters. I got the top done, just need to buy the batting and backing.

    Blues, Greens & Purples seem to be the dominating colors. But I have made several with many different colors. Not exactly scrappy, but much variety. My tastes vary alot depending on my mood. I've got more traditional ones in the works and also like contemporary fabrics/patterns.

    My favorites are pinks and purles! Really love all the 30's stuff, pastels especially!

    I tend toward warm fall colors but I don't discriminate against any color family. If I could, the next time I walked into a quilt store, I'd take every bolt home.

    :)

    I always tend toward cool colors...mostly turquoise, blues, greens. Batiks are among my favorites, but also traditional small prints are really easy to work with, and for bright stuff, large florals in red, orange, yellow can't be beat!
