    I noticed the 3 quilts that happened to be sitting in my living yesterday were all various shades of purple and green, but somehow I'm still not sick of that combo.

    I don't really get sick of seeing any colors. I like see everyone's interpretation in design. People always surprise me.

    When I think of that combo I think summertime- cotton candy, sherbert,... I think I am so new back to quilting and all of the fabrics that it may take awhile to grow tired of them. Stash is too big to become bored with any color combo right now.

    I don't like what I think of as dull colors like browns, tans, darker reds, which for me means most of the civil war fabrics. I like color, the brighter the better, scrappies are the best.

    I love color, so any light or dull colors I get tired of quickly.

    I got real tired of that blue and brown combo before it even hit fabrics. Every other designer on the HGTV design shows used that combo for at least a year and then it hit fabric designs. I don't like blue much in the first place and blue and brown together are really pretty boring since they're both fairly neutral.

    I am a bit tired of the large scale prints that are so predominant. I would like to see some smaller scale prints with lots of colors rather than just a few . Seems like the smaller the scale the less colors are in the prints.

    I looooove the blue and browns, especially if it's an aqua type blue, LOL!

    I do think though, that it will be a combo that "dates" this era, just like mauve and dusty blue was in the 80's and that funky orange and brown (remember the mushroom pattern, LOL) was in the 70's.

    As for being tired, I think we will all be tired of it eventually. I'm just not yet, LOL!

    Each of us is so different, that I can't say there is any combo I get tired of. And there are soooooooo many patterns to use, where colors work differently within the same pattern.

    Turquoise & red or turquoise & orange. And the Halloween fabric lines all seem to have added purple and acid green to their repertoire, I suppose because they needed to add SOMETHING, and purple & green were complimentary. Pink and turquoise in Christmas lines. Can you tell I don't care much for turquoise?

    I know it is out of vogue, but still see it ...yellow and blue. It was popular with country style.

    I don't like yellow for anything. I have small amounts of different shades for landscapes & applique (sometimes you do need yellow) but that's it. I'm not fond of greens that have a yellow base either. I still have scraps of country mauve & country blue...no matter how many string or crumb blocks I do those two colors never seem to get used up along with the country hearts. Don't like blue & brown either but, again, you just have to have those colors sometime! I love the "new" grays, aqua/turquoise, orange & red and a bit of that acid green (!shock!) to add a real punch! As someone else said...using the really busy patterned fabrics all together...usually in the same colors - yuk! Like she said you can't the quilt pattern for the busy-ness of the fabrics...gives me a headache.

    Are there colors that I'm tired of seeing? No, no more than there are friends I'm tired of seeing. Just doesn't happen.

    With all the hues, tints, tones, and shades, the are millions of colors and every one is affected by the light, the surroundings, the neighboring colors, and the viewer's state of mind when they see it. So, no, I never get tired of any color...I just need to take a break from some of them every now and then.

    Totally agree with this. It looks like they are trying for extra quick and cheap "does" for something that should take a lot more thought. IMHO, I think the pattern is ultra important and should really stand out. That's what I like anyway. I really don't like the hodgepodge look. Just me! Traditionalist all the way!

    When I started I thought the Civil war fabrics were drab and boring, but I just did one in tans, creams, and dark blues and I really loved it. I don't know if that will extend to mustard and moss....yuck!
    I'm tired of looking at the peach-and-green and teal-and-tan. I had to do a quilt in teal and peach and simply couldn't find the fabric - teal and peach no longer go together. I will have to throw out that old Kmart shower curtain form the 80's LOL
