Nothing burns brighter than red, and it’s versatility really shows through once you start using it within your different designs. There’s a special kind of romance that’s created when you blend red squares with whites and pinks to make an unforgettable patchwork pattern. Use a more modest shade to accentuate a classic design, or mix your shades together to give a simple quilt pattern more depth. Bold quilters will also appreciate how powerful a statement the darker shades create.

Orange

    Blue!

  2. Wanda Lopez says:

    I wish I could narrow it down to just one color, I cannot do that I simply love all the colors of the rainbow. I really enjoy mixing them up too.

  3. Victoria Nugent says:

    Blue.

  4. One color is hard to say, but I guess I would go for red or blue. I am a new quilter and could use all the help I can get. We are three weeks away from having our first great grandchild and I would love to do some quilts, wall hangings, and some toys. Thank you in advance, just in case I win because I would be so excited I would be crying and probably unable to talk at that point.

  5. any shade of red, or purples I love!

  6. I like blues. They go with almost any other color.

  7. Ilike blues.they go with almost any other color

  8. Debi Horne says:

    Usually I love the blues, but I’m trying to expand my palette, so I’m going into reds and neutrals. However, SoHo Solids are so pretty, I’d take them all if I could.

  9. Any and all Batiks!!

  10. Greens and burgundies. Always have been. I hate that stores have gone to the sages and what I call the ‘Grinch’ greens. I just love the ‘richer’ and ‘earthier’ tones.

  11. I luv all colors ..but greens & yellows have to be favorites

  12. Green is my favorite, but I use all colors. I especially love flower prints.

  13. Purples and blues are my favourites

  14. Laureen McKenzie says:

    My favorite is purple but I also love orange. Especially together!

  15. after using mostly pastels for so long, I’m ready to branch out with jewel tones now. Love the teals, saffire ruby, etc., but find I’m drawn mostly to the cool tones.

  16. This is very hard to answer as I love scrappy, multicolor quits. If I must choose, then it would have to be Reds or maybe Yellows. ;)))

  17. I love earth tones, but I use all different color when I quilt!

  18. I love scrappy quilts with lots of color…but if I had to choose one color I lean toward it would be blue.

  19. Definitely, green is my favorite; it soothes and excites!

  20. Love all colors but I just looked at my stash and the predominant color is blue, then seconded by orange.

  21. I love earth tones but also love red.

  22. Green – it is my favorite color. Purple runs a close second.

  23. I love all colores but, blue and green together are my favorites.

  24. I love pinks and light greens. I do however force myself to step out of my comfort zone.

  25. All and any shade of purple is my favorite, and appears in most of my quilts, even if they are scrappy. If it doesn’t fit with the front coloration, I manage to put it somewhere in the back design!

  26. Karen Seitz says:

    After thinking about it, I would have to say white is my favorite color to piece with. I love how it makes all of the other colors pop!

  27. Kay Shortland says:

    Hard to make a chOice but I think it would have to be blues, all shades.

  28. Reds

  29. Addie Johnson says:

    I love working with lavenders and blacks, with greens mixed in. Most of my quilts have purples of some shade in them.

  30. Addie Johnson says:

    Shades of purples with black.

  31. I like blues and browns

  32. Debbie Halcomb says:

    Blues and yellow. I also have a fondness for red with white!

  33. Norma Weeks says:

    Greens to blues catch my eye and imagination every single time.

  34. Rhonda D. says:

    Purples!

  35. Jacqueline Gould says:

    Pink because I have a lot of little girls to quilt for!

  36. Rosemary Rivas says:

    Lately I’ve been using a lot of black and more recently gray. I’ve always loved gray, it goes with any color so it’s very versatile.

  37. Cindy Wienstroer says:

    I love the secondary colors of green, purple and orange. I seem to use all the colors but those are my favorites. But I do try to choose colors that match the person I am giving it to – they must love the colors or the quilt is not a success!

  38. Beth McManus says:

    Green, no red, no gold, no blue, I can’t decide!!!

  39. My son wanted a old fashion quilt so I purchased Fabrics in civil war colors and cut the material in all kind of shapes. I am just ready to add borders. So far it doesn’t look bad at all. He is thrilled with it . I will be glad when it is done. It would have been so much easier if I had used a pattern but he wanted it to look like I just kept adding scraps of fabric and look old fashion. I am new to quilting and this has been quite a project and has all kind of colors.

  40. Blue :)

  41. Mary Carole Allen says:

    Blue or red !!

  42. Donna Knudsen says:

    I mostly make kid’s quilts for charity so my stash is full of bright, cheery colors heavily weighted towards pink and blue.

  43. Inda Olinger says:

    Blues, especially batiks

  44. Blues and greens, definitely

  45. Rhonda Davis says:

    Purple is my favorite color but lately I’ve been using blue, yellow, pink and green. Grandkids have needed quilts and I can’t say no to them!

  46. ORANGE — It is an underestimated colour. Cool, clean and most appealing.

  47. Judi Jordan says:

    I love all colors to work with in my quilts but the bright greens have my fancy now.
