I really like the reds 81,-82 and 88.
Depends on what I'm making.
My favorite basic color is red.
Blue can always be used as a basic.
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.
Blue or greens . Thanks for the giveaway!
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.
I love to use gray for the basics. Thanks for the chance to win- firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
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!
I like off-white/cream, etc
I like the orange/yellow and the purple.
I like white best.....But it really depends on my mood or other fabric i am using....email@example.com
HI,MY FAVORITE IS 'CREAM' !
THANKS FOR SHARING!
I love yellow and it manages to make it into most of my quilts.
Very pretty fabrics.
I am often drawn to blues. The blue fabric second from the bottom in the photo is wonderful!
I almost always end up with blues in my quilts.
Red is my first choice. I would choose any of the colors in your picture, except for the lavender.
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)
I like to have an assortment of creams, whites and beige for basics. Also blues since I use that a lot.
Tons of snow here. Shovelled a foot of it today!
My favorite basics are green and blue and purple
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!
If not white, then I use a lot of beige, brown or grey. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com
BLUE is always my favorite basic color.
Blue......any shade of blue!!
7755-75 is my favorite color.
I love Geary!
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
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.
I really like using an off-white for sashings and such. Makes the primary colors in the quilt POP!
what great blender fabrics - Thanks
I think that my favorite basic is a cream color
Cream is my favorite basic
I love the light pink 7755-20! I really love the pastel colors and I would love to try the aqua too! Thanks for the giveaway!
Great basic fabrics; love the colors!
Bring on the purple with #7755-56, beautiful!
Gray is my current favorite color for blending.
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.
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.
I tend to gravitate toward blues - always have!
My favorite color for a basics fabric is black. -- soparkaveataoldotcom
My basic color is blue....
I love black, white and grays.
Love to use cream/natural often...depends on project tho & who am making it for. May be a color or subtle print. LOOOOVE fabric & Colors!! :)
Really, I am the first to comment. I love Henry Glass fabric. Can't wait to win.
If I have someone in mind for the quilt, I try to use colors they like. I need more bright colors in my stash.
No snow in southern Kansas this week.
My favorite color to add is red. firstname.lastname@example.org
We won't be getting snow this week -- as far as I know! From PA, email@example.com
I always go for the blues in my quilts!
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.
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.
I like neutrals in greys and taupes for basics fabrics. They go with anything!
No snow ... just cooler temperatures.
Thanks for the giveaways.
I think if I had to choose a basic fabric as a 'go to' it would be the Pale yellow but my favorite color in this collection is the bright blue :) Happy Quilting!
Thanks for the fun giveaway!
My favorite basics color is anything the the blue family.
Blues or greens are nice.
For a background basic, I use white or cream. My favorite basic color would be blues or purples.
