Autumn colors draw me, but I also love greens. For some reason, my stash has gotten weighted towards medium scale prints. Once I get working again, I'll need to stock up on larger scale. I'm not shy about dyeing solids and some light prints I don't particularly like.

That's a hard question for me as I love all colors , But I guess it depends on my mood. There's days when I'm a spring person, somedays Autumn etc..

Reds and Golds (almost anything in the red family trips my trigger!!!)
1800's repro fabrics are my weakness, but other than that, I tend to buy small scale prints, so I have to really focus on trying to pick out large prints or checks or stripes, I dont know why I do that but my stash is mostly small prints and I really need more of the others!

I tend to lean towards tiny florals and if I'm making a quilt for me, I like victorian colors. Otherwise, anything as long as it is a small print.

I am trying to break out of muted colors and going more for brights. Like all colors, but thnk I need help putting colors together. I see so many beautiful works here and say to myself, I never would have though of that.

I love it all!!! What I am drawn to when I enter a quilt shop depends a lot on what my current project is. I may be collecting black and whites, or Civil War reproductions, or Americana. When I look at my stash it is obvious that gold is always a favorite. I like muted more than brights, but they have their place too. Each quilt calls me to something different. It is fun to step out of your comfort zone and buy something completely unlike yourself sometimes.

Blues & brights! ALL blues, from cobalt to navy to turquoise to sky. When I walk into a fabric/quilt shop....those blues call my name ;) I have been consciously avoiding them for a while now, trying to even out the stash a bit.... 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 tend to lean toward Americana colors and greens. I really need to break out of my box and go for some large florals. Most of mine are muttled solid or small floral.

I like mauves, sages, plums, victorian blue, burgundy, historical muted colours and I like the forest colours - pine green, maple red, wheat, deer brown-tan, pond gray, what else do you call them?
when I walk into a store, I love the greens - each one of them - lime, acid greens, olive, sage, pine, forest, hunter, teal, aqua, even khaki! I love them in all prints - big, small, strips, even dots, that I usually avoid! If a fabric has green in it, I'm there! Kaffe Fassett has a line out that I wouldn't normally be drawn to, but since I love the shade of green he uses, even the pink looks good (BTB pink is not my favourite colour :? )! I just may have to pick some up! Ugh, there goes my budget!
In prints, I like chickens, asians, and mexican/southwest/cowboy!

All in all, I just love fabric! So squishy, so homey, so comfy!
