    I love an assortment---1930's repro, Americana, flowers, and my favorite is any of the primitives fabrics, oh and of course any holiday fabric.

    I'm usually drawn to greens and purples - fortunately they look good together - and I love jeweltones -but a lot of times I'm doing a quilt with a particular person in mind, so I buy their favorite colors.

    I did one for a young man whose favorite colors are orange (bright bright bright orange) and green (green green green green). I did a rail fence for him and teased while I was working on it that it looked like leprechaun puke - but it turned out surprisingly well and, more importantly, he loves it.

    I read once that it's good to always pick a few colors that are out of one's comfort range. I don't much care for "earthtones" but I try to pick up a few now and again.

Here's one of my 3 cabinets, this one also has a bottom shelf full of old jeans. #2 has 2 shelves of aqua & turquoise & teals, and even in the cabinet with no blues...there's blue too! LOL But, I did deplete the blue shelves a bit by sending fabrics to Izy!! :)


    I need to go shopping on your blue shelves. lol I'm collecting fat quarters for a blue and yellow pineapple quilt I want to make. That sucker calls for something like 52 fat quarters. I'm not even close to that many!

    I tend to gravitate towards smaller prints, old fashion looking prints - Civil War, 1800 repro's, burgandy, blue, tan, forest gree, scrappy... I do not like to do bold, bright, tropical colors but will if it's for someone else.

    If it looks like it came from nature, I love it. I am always drawn to the earthy colors. When I made the "Talk-About" quilts, which were more primary in color, it was really out of my comfort zone. :roll:

    For me it is batiks in all colors, but the purples and blue/greens I love the best. I will never get enough purples.

    I like most colors, but I find myself gravitating toward purples/lavenders everytime I'm in a fabric shop. Recently though, I came across a quilt pattern in a magazine that used different value black & white prints with scattered red heart applique's. I fell in love with the pattern and had a blast shopping for the fabric...now, I just have to start cutting & sewing :lol:
