Colors


The last quilt I finished was definately not my normal choice for colors, but aparently you liked it.  Now I'm curious, what is your favorite color, or combination of colors?  I tried to add a "gadget" on the side with a color poll, but it doesn't seem to show the options for selection.  I know there are also combinations of colors that I like, not necessarily just a color by itself; so this way you can leave a combo.  I've got a lot of scraps to use up, but am having trouble deciding on which color to try next.  Thanks for your help!  =)

As you might have noticed from the scrap-bin photo, I like color.  Not so much into the browns and earth-tones.  But..... I do like this kind of brown!
Fresh-tilled garden!

My favorite combo to put together has been green and purple.

I love rainbows of colour. I dont think I've ever made a quilt just out of a couple of colours. The scrappier the better in my opinion!

Brown & Green. I do love orange, it's such a fun bright color.

I loved the green, pink and purple for a combination, Then the brown and orange and green. Lets see how about the blue and red with some white and make it for the 4th of July. Then you might try all the colors in one big quilt one called the rainbow.
You are so clever and have a great eye for combinations. Good luck. Sure hope to see the outcome.

Is this all your garden? You are going to be very busy! I love lots of different color combinations, but the first one that popped into my mind is that citrus quilt you did back before Rilla was born-- the greens and yellows!

Hey you guys have a rototiller too! :-) Justin was very impressed with the new one! I love brights and earthtones. Depends on what it is and what the setting is. I think white paired with a few bright summery color (lime, yellow, bright pink, orange) is always classic and crisp looking! I made the girls some skirts in mid yellow, cornflower blue, and a lighter lime green and I loved that combo! It was just a fun mix!

My current fave combo is bright sky blue and either a cherry red or a poppy orange. Kind of odd, but really eye-catching!

Wow--that's going to be QUITE the garden. You'll be loaded with fresh produce. Nice. Oh, and I like pink and orange together. XOXO

Light pink and light lemon yellow with with off white and greens. I'm wanting to redecorate a guest room so need spreads and bolsters to match. I'm wanting to key this room to a painting for the wall that I already have. So you have a customer waiting in the wings, with purse in hand! Love you, and your blog.
P,S. No hurry--HA

Lately, my favorite color combinations have been red/yellow, brown/green/orange (never thought I'd like THAT color combo but if it's the right shades of those colors, they look FABULOUS together), purple/yellow, and pink/brown!! By the way, you mentioned on my blog somethng about 'trading', since I make cards, and you sew. If you're serious, lets work something out!!
