    When I first started quilting I tended to pick the darker colors...I'm still in love with them, but I'm with Rosemarie...don't care for all those blended patterns where you can't see the quilt block design! I also like the lighter flowery patterns.

    You know it is a shame that the reproduction (Civil War) fabrics have been made that way because they were really bright yellow, bright red, and bright blue colors. There are sample books that have been found unopened for years so the fabrics are still as bright as they were when they were new and that fact has been lost!

    It's not so much a color (or color combination) that I don't like - rather some of the really bright and busy fabrics all in one quilt. Some Kaffe Fasset prints are just so bright that one needs sun glasses. And I'm not fond of 30's anything - but I never did like the 30s.

    This was my thought! I prefer brights, but recently lots of babies and all the mother's want pastels, (personal yuck). I keep trying to explain that the babies prefers brights and B&W, but no one's listening.

    I don't like grey with other colors in a print, I think its downright ugly. I prefer bright colors. I also don't like quilts with little contrast. What's the point of doing all that piecing if you can't see the blocks in the finished quilt??

    I mostly like fabrics/colors that can stand the test of time (cozy and relaxing). Six months ago, I looked at these bright modern prints and gagged. My last two projects have been so bright I need sunglasses. Hubby especially gagged over the turquoise/lime lap quilt. But, I've been having a ball and enjoy being out of my comfort zone.

    Have to say though, I don't like batiks that are muddy/murky appearing, or fabrics that are yellowish green, brownish red, or redish purple. And, I despise anything with a sock monkey print or cabbage roses.

    I agree here. I think that this is basic as well and I agree. I hate it when I can't see the design that was intended.

    While it's not a color combo per se I'm waaaaaaaaaaay over the fabrics that look like the 60's (I'm thinking like Amy Butler stuff). Aqua & red is going to get real old real quick, too, I think. And I'm way over brown with pink or lime or light blue. I just think quilts made from those are going to be dated too quickly. IMHO...

    I love all colors and patterns, not much I don't like in fabric. However I have recently realized that I don't want to make another quilt right now unless it has lots of white in it. I also like bright color, clear colors not muted. I have been restoring 1930's quilts that I bought on eBay and they are so beautiful with the white backgrounds and clear colors. Just where I am right now.
