    you are a smart cookie....course I think you meant some of our fellow members could go get some therapy, lol.
    Especially if it makes them want to punch somebody. DH's lookout!!! :lol:
    YES!!

    I haven't started yet, but I will eventually write my doctorate thesis on color & communication (therapy) and how it all actually does work together!

    There are some yellow and orange shades that just make my skin crawl.

    Jenniejo.. white is actually the presence of all color and black is the absence of all color.. at least where light is concerned.. so white should go with any color and black with no color at all.. how could that be right?? of course it isn't, because that has to do with light, not fabric!! Which of course makes it useless information where this thread is concerned.. but it was fun to think about!

    Can't tolerate black and red together in anything. I can take orange only in small amounts/blends.

    I don't care much for beige. It's a "non color" color for me, but it does have its place in some of my projects.

    Orange! My opinion is the only places it belongs are ones that God has done: an orange or tangerine, pumpkins, sunrise, sunset & rainbows!

    A color I hate? Can't think of a one. Ever since I was young (and that was a LONG time ago!) and people asked me what my favorite color was, I just answered, "The Rainbow". Did you ever stop to think what a marvelous thing all the colors are, and what a drab place we'd live in without them?

    I don't like pink either- yuk! - but for some reason Echinaceas don't bother me. Baby pink/pale pink is the worst. Hot pink is sometimes ok, depending.

    I go through color stages, I have been through a green phase where I loved everything green, I have loved yellow for a time, I am now shifting to gray and lime green, two colors that I have despised in the past. My theory is that we love (or hate) different colors at different times in our lives.

    I don't use (or particularly like) white, maybe the starkness, purity. Don't wear much white, few tops thats all, yet I like white kitchens. Haven't yet and wouldn't use in quilts. prefer off white, cream or beige. My sister (also a quilter) and I both love purple in any shade,and I go for autumnal, she likes blues. Funny how mostly for no particular reason we make our choices.

    I lived in Conifer Colorado and Oregon also but I like it here too, The road trip from Casper to here is awful, isn't it. Long and boring and you better not need a way side station "=:)a
    Would love to find a quilter closer to Gillette. I understand Salt Lake is preparing for a huge quilt show next year. Do you know anything about that?

    I like them all. I have gone through colors stages but am currently loving all of them. If you don't like a color in your quilt, add more of it. It works. HIH

    so those of you that absolutely hate a color-if a loved one asked for a quilt with those colors in it, would you still make the quilt? talk them out of the "yucky" colors? or just grit your teeth and jump in?

    I would grit my teeth and jump in because I won't have it in the house for long!!
