    Just wondering if anybody has a favorite color scheme that happens to pop up in your quilts, accidentally or on purpose.

    I love using green in quilts and when designing a quilt (mostly picking blocks and laying them out on paint) pink and green happen to appear in a lot of mine which to me is weird as I'm not a pink person at all.

    Anybody else have favorites??

    I like:
    chocolate with pale blue, chocolate with pink, black with brights, white with pale colors, and apparently a lot of yellow because it's creeping into every project. LOL

    Hands down is red, black olive, and ivory. Here's a pic of some I used together for a bargello. Loved the combination so much I redecorated my LR around it!

    Red, white, and black---I call it my White Stripes color scheme (the band wore only red, white, and black)

    I pick who is getting the quilt first, then then pattern.....decide on color last and tailor them to suit the recipient. Sooo....no, I don't have favorites that pop into my head. I wish I could tho, I would do them all in reds!

    For a combination I like browns and aquas. When shopping I always gravitate to the blues and purples.
