    Mattie, I am also not a fan of batiks altho I am making a batik quilt for my dd. I tend to go more traditional quilting with small prints - and not necessarily cival war materials. and I just love bright colors on childrens's quilts what beautiful quilts we all make in all sorts of material? go quilters

    Penny, you and I were cut from the same cloth. I, too have received fabric from friends and acquaintances. I've even received fabric from friends of friends. Since we live in a fairly warm climate, we don't need a huge supply of quilts. I've recently found a new recipient for my quilts, a nearby childrens home.

    DO not care for civil war or even the 1930's reproductions. little Calicos I have so out grown them.. The 1970 style is definately out as well. cutisy prints are a no, no, for me.
    do not like strips, checks, or plaids, or large dots.
    Love the batiks. solids or prints that read like a solid. Love hand dyeing my own fabrics also.

    Our local little shop has retro fabric from the 30s and 40s- I love them and think I was born a few generations late.

    Have never bought novelty fabric, ditto for CW repos....don't know why.Haven't bought solids since I 1st started quilting....20 yrs ago.
    Love paisleys, tho not sure what to do with them & marbles for BG.

    White doesn't work for me......prefer cream & have all size flower prints. Love the really good Asians.I usually like some of most lines, even if I don't want to buy them.So...a little bit of most fabrics works for me.

    I only use white if I need to put applique on it . Some times it won't work and I use cream but most of the things I applique show up better on white. I still like the tone on tone white but if I do not have it or enough for the project I use plain white. I am not fond of oranges but some times for a border I use it to make the center POP.

    I do a lot of scrappy & always have some yellow/gold in there.Some colors I'll use just to have a variety, but have never bought pink & almost no blue. That's prob because I have no blue in my house.It's funny...I like all quilts & admire the work in them.Applique is far beyond my talents.Ppl use fabrics & colors that might not appeal to me, but they look great in their quilts.They say tastes in fabrics change,just like taste in food.

    You wouldn't like ironing those beautiful fabrics with a sad iron while standing by a hot stove. (needed to keep those irons hot). This had to be done even when the temperature was above 90 degrees. There was no air conditioning,either. We usually baked bread and did the ironing on the same day, as a hot stove was needed for both.

    I love the 1930's and most all other fabrics, the one that I don't like is ORANGE, I just can't see me using this at all. But thats just me, I have seen some really beautiful quilts done with orange in them, but that's just me. I do love just about any kind of fabric, as long as it is pretty and I haven't seen to many fabrics that aren't pretty. Just wish that I had all the money that I needed to buy a piece of all of it and then I would be happier. LOL LOL I don't have a big stash but I have some and I do buy some along and am building up so thats a good thing. Happy quilting to everyone.

    I love pink flamingos so therefore, I love all the bright colors. Not able to wrap my head around Thimbleberries or the Civil War prints.

    I'm just glad that we are all so different. Because of that, I get to see many, many different pretty quilts.
