I am in the midst of a new quilt-- of course another scrap, multicolored quilt. I really hate the color green so this time I thought I would push myself and try to use greens. So I did what I usually do and threw about 12 fabrics on the table to see what looked good. The greens were passable. I started and cut out lots of pieces. I made about 6 blocks. I hated the green. I took the green pieces and threw them on the floor and got the green fabric off the table. Boy, did it look better. And now I'm in the mood to do this quilt. And tonight I took those blocks apart, threw away the green pieces and remade them. Now I'm cooking here. Does anyone else go through this or am I the only one who's nuts? Are there any colors you absolutely hate?

It seems odd to me to not like green - I love green - I think it's my favourite colour!!
What I don't like is that shade that beige comes in, you know, that washed out, kinda barely there, beigy shade.
It bores my eyes.

I'm a fan of green, too, but I can relate - my tolerance for pastels is pretty low.

Plaid....I have a big problem with plaids. Green's not high on my list either....but I'm too lazy to have ripped them out once I started :wink:

I detest the color orange. Don't know why. I like to eat oranges. I love sunsets. I just don't like the color orange. Green, on the other hand, is fine by me!

I used to dislike several colours and avoid them - until I took up p and q, and started to use them, and began to appreciate mixing colours.

Pink is a horrible color in my book. I struggle with it when I make a quilt for a little girl.

Yep, for me it is purples, mostly lavendars that I can't stand.

I'm not especially fond of green, either. I have almost none in my stash. The color I never use is brown...dull, dull, dull. :roll:

I like the brights, blues, yellows, and reds. If I had it my way, that's the only colors I would work with. Unfortunately, I make for others and they like the boring things... :evil:

I love all the oldy fashioned faded, washed out, dark repro type fabrics - DH says I need to brighten up a bit and i TRY to make myself buy funky lime - orange etc or even batiks or bright florals but I just can't bring myself too, although I love the quilts posted by others on here using those colours - guess I'm just an old-fashioned girl!
