if you had to pick, what would be your favorite colors(combinations)/style of fabrics?
i like bold bright colors! contempary colors in a traditional quilt pattern will my my heart flitter everytime! my FAV color is green, esp lime green. my least fav is red. never have liked it. but i do like fuschias, purple-y reds, just not spectrum red. i find that when i start a new quilt/project, my color choices tend to reflect my mood. or i'll fall in love with a fabric and will design a quilt to showcase it. it depends on what mood i'm in. i tend to gravitate towards the cool colors. i love Kaffe Fasset/Westimister fabrics as well as Amy Butler. the other day i was organizing my stash and i noticed that alot of my fabrics are geometric graphics and large scale prints with bold color schemes. i LOVE LOVE batiks. i'll go hungry to buy a fabric that speaks to me.
this quilt is to date one of my favorites. it is a simple quilt, but the fabrics make it sing. if i had to pick one quilt of mine to sum up my personal 'style' this would be the one i'd pick.
here's another question open for discussion:
what is tendy in your LQS (local quilt shop) or guild and do you like the trend?
i'll think about it and post my answer in a following post.
