My favourite colour is...what?

For most of my life my favourite colour was blue. Cobalt blue to be exact. But since I started quilting I've noticed a change in the colours I'm drawn to. Now I'm drawn to a larger range of colours, and blue is far down the list. I'd have to say red is my overall favourite, I check out the reds in the fabric store first!

This quilt started my interest in red, I collected lots of shades and patterns. My next quilt was red and cream too, partly because I had so many scraps! My Flower Fairy quilt has a very vibrant red bordering each square. I see lots more red in my future!
Have you noticed a change in your preferences too? What's your overall favourite?
It's another rainy day here, so I hope to get some quilting done.
Until next time,


  1. Thanks for the kind words Mary. Now I know what colour to make your squares!

  2. I have come to believe that every quilt should have some red in it, or lots of red in it!


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you. Really!
