    YELLOW I hate It! I don't have anything in my home that is yellow. Not liking yellow is one of my earliest memories as a child. I don't even eat yellow foods.

    I use any colour, for one of my niece's quilt, I wanted to make her a black and white quilt, and she wanted a rich purple in it! NOT alot of rich purple so I added a small amount to each block. I was not sure what it would look like, and it turned out beautifully, that has given me a whole new outlook on each and every colour!

    I am gritting my teeth and jumping in to make the orange quilt for my DGS. What else is there to do? Smiles. I did talk him into letting me add in some blues and greens for contrast. LOL (and to save my sanity).

    Broncos are orange and blue too! I used to have colors that I hated, but I will use any color in a quilt.

    I use to hate orange. But my little sister that I am very close to married a man who loves it. At first I tolerated now it is just funny. I also have come around in the past ten years to love orange in some color combinations and as pumpkins. I love to garden... and I love to grow pumpkins. But really I love color! Combinations of colors I find most fun if they go together well. Forced combinations drive me crazy!

    I like red and purple together. Don't care for the baby-poop tan.

    Hate is a really strong word. So I will say,I like almost every color....... Except..... 80's dusty pink and dusty blue.Maybe with other colors or cut up really small I could tolerate them. My very first large quilt had a lot of the colors everyone has mentioned, and I think it turned out great. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-23104-1.htm I wouldn't have chosen some of them , but they were from the school kids clothing , their theme was recycle , reuse , renew so I think it worked and in making it I changed my mind about some of my least favorite colors. So to answer your ? No, I do not hate any color.

    White is the absence of all colors, black is the presence of all colors.

    Funny, it seems like it should be the other way around to me.

    Depends on whether you are talking about light or crayons. White it the prsence of all colors of LIGHT. Or white is the absence of any color of crayone.

    I can't say I absolutely HATE any color, but I'm not the biggest fan of yellow. I know, it's the color of optimism...what does that say about me?! :lol:

    Don't like BLACK? Black can make another fabric sing. A little black in a quilt can make all the difference in the depth of a quilt. I just see it as another dark color to add demension
