FFFF - late again!!!!

So sorry, I'm late again with my monthly fabric giveaway! I had part of what I wanted to do, wanted a little more - so had to contemplate it awhile - okay, okay, just got busy and didn't get around to taking pics and posting!!

Without further ado - This month's FFFF consists of two 6" charm packs - one is a collection from Hancock's that is a 16 piece pack - 4 each of 4 designs that are nice fall colors. The other is a 18 piece pack of purples - 2 each of 9 designs that I put together from my stash. Which brings me to this month's question - what's your favorite color? Mine is purple!!! But I love fall colored fabrics!! So to enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me (us) your favorite color and your favorite fabric color. Even if you don't want to be in the giveaway - tells us your favorite colors and why you like them! Oh yeah, I like purple because it is "royal" and I like feeling "royal"! I love wearing purple! But when I shop for fabric I'm always drawn to browns, rusts, golds - all those rich fall colors!



Blessings Ya'll!!!!!!

Oh, Doniene, this was hand-picked just for me, wasn't it? : )
I love purple--it is so rich and deep on one end of the spectrum and so delicate and wispy on the other. I quilt with it, wear it--I almost decorated with it, but DH didn't quite agree.
Fall has always been my favorite season, so all of the colors involved just gladden my heart. They are everything warm and cozy and glowing, to me.

I love teal/turquoise for everything! They make me feel calm and relaxed, and I definitely need that feeling sometimes. When I choose fabrics, I also include bright yellows, grey and deep pinks in the mix.

Interesting question-----I love red and quilt with red quite often, but when shopping I gravitate to the fall colors. Not a pastel person at all.

I think my favorite color is pink. Thanks for the chance

Even my grandchildren know that PURPLE is my favorite color... Never saw a purple that I didn't like... my winter coat is purple even!

I lean toward the darker purples... the royal purple, the dusty grape, the rich purple-red... but enjoy the lighter shades as well!

My favorite color in everything is orange! It's such a happy color, you just can't be sad looking at it! Most of my quilts have at least a bit of orange in them, and on several it's the main color! Yummy!

It's funny, my husband never cared for orange much, and I used to tease him when I'd finish a quilt, and while showing it to him, I'd quietly point out the orange bit to him. He'd say, "Of course! You just couldn't leave it out, could you!?!" Ha! Now, he's actually liking the color, and wants to see it in the quilts! :o)

I love all the fall colors, too! Rich browns, deep reds, dark greens and golds, and with lots of orange thrown in. Fall is definitely my season.

Pink is my favorite color but when it comes to quilting I love rich earth tones/fall colors best.
Beautiful charm packs you've chosen for your generous giveaway!

I always seem to have plenty of reds and blues in my stash - but on the whole there aren't many colours I don't like - if it's fabric I tend to gravitate towards it!!

I like greens and blues the most.

Oh, you're not really going to make me pick a favorite, are you? I'm an Aggie so it has to be Maroon, but lately I've been attracted to ocean blues. I think it has something to do with the fact that we are still in desperate need of rain. :) That purple is so rich and I would love to make a fall table runner from the pretty fall collection you've chosen should I win. Thank you!

I love emerala, but have only few pieces of this colour in my stash. Why emerald? Realy don't know, just like it.Maybe because of its freshness...
And imagine emerald and deep purple together, FANTASTIC!

Without a doubt it would be red! Love it in all shades.
