    Snappy have been my choices for the last few years.

    Before that I tended to stay in the earthy tones!

    I tend to wear bright colors also, especially work clothes.

    Brings out the happy in me more, I guess! :D

    Purple is what I gravitate towards but am trying to be good and buy to fill in the gaps in my stash. I will usually buy a purple every time I go fabric shopping.

    I guess you would call me laid back. I have always liked blue, but lately I find myself going for the Earth tones. Browns, tans, greens.

    I seem to gravitate towards florals. No idea why. I have to remember that everyone doesn't always like flowers

    I really like blues and yellows together, pinks and greens, etc, but wouldn't call my choices "snappy". I love earth tones, rich colors (like purple, burgundy, greens, browns, etc). I do get some brights, especially when I am making a quilt for a baby. I have inherited most of my brights from my mom and step-mom. I guess you could say that I go with what I feel the recipient would like best, unless, of course the quilt is for me or for my home.

    When i saw your thread title, I thought you were asking about my personality! :mrgreen:

    I used to be 'laid back' - fabric wise, I mean! CWs repros, earthy tones but my horizons have been broadened by the inspiration I've had on the board and now I have brights, batiks, neons even in my stash! So I'm much more balanced these days! :-D

    I love jewel tones, but also have lots of soft colors. I like reds. But I would say I have more blues than anything else. Just now starting to love the batiks!

    I go for earthy - browns,dark greens,cranberry, florals with these colors. If quilt is for me. I used brights in a biscuit quilt for 20 yr. old DGD, because she likes brights, had to buy them. Really I guess I do have yellows,off whites, subdued golds, pinks and purples and blues, most are what I use when giving them away.

    Ditto, here! I don't much like depression-era fabric ... a bit too blah for my taste, nor do I like a lot of what I call dark and dreary fabrics all in one quilt. When I see an entire quilt of dark and dreary, I think it should be in a sod house on the prairies in the 19th century. That alone is depressing.

    I lean toward batiks they alway call to me. I have started to try prints in bold colors for quilts. As a teacher I have says it is best to push yourself out of your comfort zone to see what you can create.

    I used to be very traditional with earthtones and darks, but after making my daughter's quilt (my avatar), I go for the brights now.

    Is there any other color but blue? I find my stash is full of blue in any shade. I also am drawn to any fabric with bright gold or silver metalic. I love Asian prints but don't know what I'd do with them.

    I have a large stash of Asian prints and most of the time I just look at them and fondle them!

    I lean towards batiks...........they call my name! If they are blue, green or purple, well lets just say, they have to come home with me.

    I love rich intense colors. I "work hard" to buy out of my comfort zone. I like the subtle laid backs for quilt backs. I'm a hand quilter, and sometimes batiks are tough on my hands, but those Moda marbles...

    I don't think that it is an acronym. The term comes from the games where a player can select a character to represent him or her. That character is called the Avatar. We refer to the picture that everyone has posted to identify themselves as their Avatar.

    I tend to gravitate to snappy or jewel tone colors but love quilts that others make using earth tones and more subdued colors.
