I can't say there are any colors that I really HATE...maybe just a shade of a certain color or a certain color combination.....otherwise..I just think if used in the right circumstances.... :thumbup:

What's p and q?

There are colors I struggle with, but there is always some place those colors work! My avatar is out of my comfort zone, but I really like it! :?

I feel the same way and when I had to make fall colors for a block swap it turned out okay. Yucky oranges.

My favorite is green and rose.
But I like all colors.
The only fabrics I dont like are the new ultra bright busy confusing combinations I see in the quilt mags now. It is a new trend and I just dont like it. I like to see the pattern in a quilt, not a big bright jumble.

I LOVE green! Hate, hate, hate blue. Too much of it in our home for too long, I think. Joined a swap that required it and had to go buy some as I had NONE in my stash!

I used to have a "brown allergy" but now it's one of my favorite colors, lol.

Pastels would be on my "yuck" list.

Some greens and most purples. I can work with them but I really don't like them. And I can't figure out why.

Viva la difference!!!

I think it is so great that we each have colors that we like and don't like---that's what makes the world go round.

When I look at my stash I can see that there are definitely colors I am drawn to and others I am not. Not a fan of orange--so when I buy it, it is more of a rusty color. Purple-not big in my book-the little bit I have leans towards plum. I like pink just fine, but have very little in my stash--I think it is because my daughter (who is 26) LOVES pink and all the pink I buy seems to make its way to her house!! I am drawn towards navy blue, deep golds and reds, dark green (though I like green, there are not many green fabrics I like) and brown. I love CW repros. I am a very dull girl :cry:
