    There is a particular range of baby-poop (could be green or could be brown) that I probably would not use in a quilt - but how could I hate such expression of a natural phenomenon. arr arr.
    LOL on the baby poop. Years ago, my hubby and Daughter found a Dodge car they really liked and the only way to describe the color was METALLIC BABY POOP.

    I totally agree with you. I like bright clear colors, not the grayed or washed out colors. They don't make me happy.
    Especially Thimbleberries colored fabrics. blech!!!

    Joyceinoh,
    I don't understand it either, makes the jeans look dirty, I'd be tempted to bleach them lol
    That goes for the expensive jeans that are all ripped up too. I can do that all on my own and not pay lots of money.

    I can't see why anyone would pay for something like that.
    My son gets a stain like that on his work jeans and nothing I do seems to bring it out.. And while we are OT here. Why would anyone want to buy jeans with rips in them?
    Hubby went to buy new pants but the ones he thought were worn out looked better then the new ones. :(

    That quilt is beautiful... BEAUTIFUL...but for my choices, I would have had to have used greens, or blues, or fushia....

    Another vote for pink. You will probably never see pink in any of my work.

    There are a few colors I would have said I didn't care for before joining this board, but it seems that the use of some of these less popular colors is what makes certain quilts really stand out, and in a good way ;-)

    The only color I stay away from generally is orange. Orange makes me angry. But then sometimes I see orange in the new hot modern fabrics and it works for me.

    The only real color combination I really do not like is pink and red. I do not understand why anyone would think they go together?

    I don't like peach, or mint green, pale pink, or white. If we're talking cars, I really don't like white on most cars or trucks. There are classy, easy-going tone on tone creams for quilts and rich creams for vehicles, but that pure white makes me stop looking at it.

    I am also a pink hater. I really really really do not like pink one iota. Having said that, I haven't depinked my stash since I do sew for others on occasion and it has come in handy but I have very little of it!

    What a spectacular quilt! That boy is a lucky guy to have such a devoted and talented mom to make that for him. You must stand tall on this endeavor!!!! What is the pattern called?
