    I don't there is a color that I don't like. But I am a big color person. Fall colors including oranges and yellows are among my favorites, they give me a warm, fuzzy feeling. I also love reds, purples, greens and pinks. Like I said, I don't think there is a color that I don't like, lol. I do, however, shy away from fabric solids and prefer tone-on-tones.

    I love bright colors, I really don't like the dark autumn colors. I didn't like yellow for a long time, don't even know why. But I just fell in love with Moda's Natures Notebook, which is blue and yellow. I guess time changes everything and every one.

    I really dislike Desert Storm Camo. I think it looks funny.

    once used aqua to put a grandmothr's flower garden together-as in the path around the blocks.it's turned out very pretty-tho it was more of a robin's egg color.
    as to peach-havent seen a shade i like.yellow is ok in small amounts when you can find a decent one.not bird bird yellow-more like butter.i once used that shade along with brown and green for a man's version of a trip round the world.it also had a blue in it i hated.that blue was just a tad thinner than the rest of the fabrics and it wanted to unravel.not a pretty sight.

    Can't say I actively dislike any colour, though I am not fond of fabric with a rose print. I have quite a lot in my stash, but plan on making a quilt for my mother as she loooves rose prints. Funny thing is I have a number of roses in my garden and they are one of my favourite flowers.

    I cannot stand white, I have only ever worked with it once, on a quilt I made for my nephew, and I hated every minute of it, but that was his colour choice.

    I have rarely worked an anything that as flowers either, not that I dislike flowers, but they are just not my thing. I prefer bright abstract prints and colours.

    Lately, I have been collecting browns, after doing the Fall Table runner swap, they have captured my attention, and I plan to make a table set using browns. Another project to add to the already very long list!

    I'm with quiltilicious, the quilt tells me what colors. I must say I've noticed a severe shortage of florals in my stash. 'Scuse me now, think I feel a shopping trip coming on.

    Right on, Mlaceruby. Some years ago I was commissioned to make a king sized quilt in peach and seafoam green (similar to lime green). I had to bribe myself to make, assemble and border the blocks. I quilted the least amount I could because I almost became physically ill looking at the quilt. However, the owner LOVED IT, sent me photos of it on her bed and related all the compliments she received....I still hated the colors. Belles

    I am sooo different than most of you! I Love yellow, orange and purple. some pinks. I really like bright colors.
    The colors i don't like is dull colors, and the older shades of green. But I do agree as you get older your tastes change so much. I have alot more green in my stash than I used to.
    I am making a quilt now out of forrest green, cranberry and navy blue. It is all i can do to work on it. but i want to get it out of my house.
    Hey Arty 1 your mom and my grandmother must have been related. Almost every room in my grandparents house was I would call a hot pink. I do believe the kitchen was yellow then painted green.

    Not so much a color, but high contrast is my nemesis.

    Brenda5.. Our pink was a light soft pink.... I think "Hot Pink" would have driven me over the edge!!! http://www.quiltingboard.com/compose...stnum=1371225#

    I like just about any color in a quilt, especially a scrappy quilt. But what I really don't like is pastels. I've seen other quilters use pastels and they usually look lovely, but I personally wouldn't like to work with them. They put me to sleep. Even my baby quilts are never pastel.
    Just a personal oddness, I guess. 8-)
