Thanks so much Victoria for asking me to play the colour game here on your site.
I'm Michele Foster and I own and manage the web site, Quilting Gallery.
My site is
dedicated to bringing quilters together from around the world
and inspiring quilters' creativity. Is there a color you find you always use? I love to use something bright to add a pop of colour to a quilt.
I find pink, red, orange or yellow work well. Here's my Blue and Yellow Fun
quilt top that I completed a year or so ago, waiting to be quilted. Three colors you use most together. I love scrappy quilts, so use all colours quite often.

Some I've dyed myself, but most I purchased from a lady when she was
closing up her shop.
I was doing the happy dance that day. The second photo are my miscellaneous
fat quarters and some yardage.
A favorite quilt you've made that represents these colors you use often. My Happy Memories quilt is my favourite. ( see post here) It was made to
honor my three kitties who are now on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
