Crickets Corner said...

Blue can always be used as a basic.

Quilting Jeannie said...

My favorite basic color in quilting, my go to color, is off white. I also go to small polka dots for backgrounds. They add color without detail. Thanks for the giveaway. I love your fabrics.

Denise Mitchell said...

Blue or greens . Thanks for the giveaway!

Joyce Carter said...

I use a lot of white. Thank you for your giveaway.

I guess my favorite basic color for quilts would be yellow although I pretty much use what goes best with the other fabric choices.

Rose Sabey said...

I love to use gray for the basics. Thanks for the chance to win- rosesabey@yahoo.com

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I love blue, so usually have some variation of that in my quilts. I also prefer tans and creams for backgrounds rather that white. Unless it's a blue and white quilt--lol!

martha said...

for background it would be #7755-04 and just because i always tend to put a red in my quilts #7755-88. Thanks for chance to win!

Nancy said...

I love yellow and it manages to make it into most of my quilts.

Debi said...

Very pretty fabrics.

Lisa Marie said...

I am often drawn to blues. The blue fabric second from the bottom in the photo is wonderful!

LeAnne said...

I almost always end up with blues in my quilts.

JANET said...

Red is my first choice. I would choose any of the colors in your picture, except for the lavender.

Debbie said...

Thanks for another great giveaway. I've shared your giveaway on my Giveaway List for sewers and quilters at wowilikethat.com. Thanks again. (debbie at wowilikethat dot com)

Andrea York said...

I like to have an assortment of creams, whites and beige for basics. Also blues since I use that a lot.

Andrea York said...

Tons of snow here. Shovelled a foot of it today!

PK Sews said...

My favorite basics are green and blue and purple

teachpany said...

I love purples, but the basic or blender color depends on others in the quilt. I do use lots of whites and creams. The yellow on the pile looks really sweet, too. As for snow, I got over a foot between last night and today, and expect another 3 or 4" by Thursday, and another storm Sunday. That's what I get for living in the Poconos!

DebraKay Neiman said...

If not white, then I use a lot of beige, brown or grey. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Kathy Davis said...

Suppose to get some snow this week on Thursday, though they didn't give any total amounts, because it is suppose to be too warm. So where I live we probably really won't get any snow this week. I told you this on twitter. @lfhpueblo

Cathi said...

Almost every quilt I make has had some pink in it - so I suppose for me pink is one of the basics I always look to incorporate into a quilt.

Barb N said...

I really like using an off-white for sashings and such. Makes the primary colors in the quilt POP!

Kathy said...

Margaret said...

I usually start first by choosing a fabric for the background of my quilt and it's usually a neutral - white, off-white, grey.

Cream. I love to work with it.

Cindy Dahlgren said...

Wow, first again. When I pick out colors for a quilt, if I don't have a feature fabric, I tend to pick bright colors in a variety of colors.

Carol S. said...


I always go for the blues in my quilts!








Kathy E. said...

I'm not sure why, but many of my solids or tone on tone fabrics are lime green. I make a lot of personalized bibs and that color just goes so well for both boys and girls and coordinates with many other colors.

Finnie said...

My favorite basic color right now is grays. I love gray/grey. Thanks for the eye candies. The colors are just right for this white time of the year!!!! No snow for us- only flurries but thoughts going out to those affected by the blizzard! Stay safe and warm.

BarbaraG said...

I like neutrals in greys and taupes for basics fabrics. They go with anything!

Brenda said...

No snow ... just cooler temperatures.
