    There isn't anything I really don't like. I have favorites, but nothing that I wouldn't ever use. If anybody wants to de-stash, just holler my way. lol

    good grief, woman...I love pinks, purples, and I love all colors in the right combination so much that I don't think I can pick a favorite,
    BUT...
    if I just had to, fuschia just might be it!

    I get tired of the dreary colors like (don't throw that at me) the Thimbleberry stuff. I know, I know, theres a lot of people that love it but after doing several quilts in those dark, dreary (to me), drab colors I get to where I want to vomit.

    Bright orange and dark blue. Being from Central Illinois, home of the Illini, you'd think I'd like those colors but after several years of warehousing, inventorying, and selling orange and blue clothing and other items for the athletic association I learned to despise it.

    I'm not a fan of army like colors. Drab and dull to me. Not crazy of uber bright colors either.

    However, every color will look good surrounded by other complimentary colors, so just a matter of taste and preference.

    I always think this is an interesting topic. There are so many variations of colors. My favorite has always been orange, but you will not find one bit in my wardrobe. Looks awful on me! But will you find lots in my stash with lots of other bright colors. Someone once said my stash looks like a pack of "Now & Laters"!!!

    I don't care for browns. I guess it's because I go for brights, pastels & happy colors.

    There are colors that i don't care for and colors that i won't/can't wear, but in a quilt i will use whatever it takes to make it. black/white/orange/pink/olive green whatever. of course it also depends on who the quilt is for . if it's for me i would prbably steer away from those colors i don't care for. diahrrea yellow would be pretty hard to use-he he

    Brown and black. I don't like either of the colors in my quilts, clothes (shoes ok) or decorating my home.
