I work with every color under the rainbow. My favorite color is orange so when I do a bargello type it was orange - go figure!

Pam@SerendipityWoods said...

The color I tend to have the most of in terms of fabric seems to be red. I think that's mostly because it's so multi-seasonal. It can be springy, summery, fallish, and most certainly fits into winter/holiday quilts most of all!

LeAnne said...

Purples and blues are my favorites.

Gayle said...

Red is my favorite

JANET said...

I do a lot of applique so green is my first choice for stems, then red, pink, yellow/gold for flowers.

Linda B said...

I lean towards the blues shades and the colors that go with it....like yellows....

Pauline Perry said...

I am drawn to reds especially dark red, and I love blues too. Depends of course what I am making - childs quilt, baby quilt, wedding quilt, etc.

My favourite colour is red, but I'm fussy about it. It has to really be red, not orange-ish or pink-ish, but red.
