If someone told me a few years ago I'd use grey fabric I would have said no way. But I love it! I'm the perfect consumer haha! Love all the new trends.

Not so much for me! I want my quilts to pop...then again, I have never been a fan of gray!

My current trend is the Accuquilt cutter and the dies with all the embroidery patterns. So much fun.

Referring to gray quilts:

It's fascinating to me how different people view things quite differently. I'm very attracted to quite light gray as a background fabric with strong and bright fabrics, and to me, I feel like the brights really pop. But then, I was never wild about plain white as a background fabric; my first quilt (around 1990) was a sampler (wall hanging size), and the white seemed blah to me, and I did not like where I could see the seam allowances through it. (I was not not taught to press to the dark side on the quilt.)

I also remember being wowed the first time I saw a quilt using black for a background and jewel toned fabrics for the piecing. The woman who made it told she was sooooo tired of the calicos of the 1970s and early 1980s. Looking at her earlier quilts really showed what a big palette change she had made.

I really like the use of tan, or khaki as a background color. It can look both modern and rustic at the same time. I also like odd, background colors such as periwinkle, sunflower yellow, or pastel coral. It's so unexpected and adds a new dimension to a design. I see this done in a lot of antique quilts.

Mustard gold seems to be popping up everywhere. I remember, many years ago, I did an, "ugly fabric swap," on this board and someone sent me a mustard gold with white flower print. It was hard to use, but I still loved it and managed to get it into several quilts. It looks great with coral and turquoise...also navy blue.
