Gail posted a survey about our fabric choices. Here are my answers:
What is your favorite color to use in your quilts?
Purple is my favorite color and I used it a lot when I started quilting. Lately I’ve been using a lot of green in my projects. I did go through a pink phase earlier this year. I guess I’m destined to go through different color phases. That’s fine with me.
Do you have a favorite style, ie. depression repros, 1800 repros, geometrics, florals, plaids, batiks, marbled, etc.?
I’m not a fan of batiks or orientals. Other than those I haven’t decided if I have a favorite style.
Do you have a favorite line of fabrics, ie. Kaffee Fasset, one of Moda's lines, Jo Morton, etc.
I like Moda marbles. They go with everything.
Do you tend to buy a particular subject , ie. butterflies, strawberries, cats?
Earlier this summer I visited a new quilt shop in town and a fun polka dot fabric found it’s way into my hands. Since then I’ve been on the lookout for fun polka dots.
Did I miss a category here?????
How about why we buy fabric? For fun, for a specific project or because it was on sale and you just “had to have it!?
Other than the polka dot fabric I still buy fabric with a project in mind or at least at a WHIM. I seldom buy fabric if it’s not on sale unless I absolutely need it. My dad taught me to be thrifty with my money and always look for a good deal.
One more question: if you are buying fabric that is not for a project how much do you buy?
I have given up buying FQs. I like to use fabric in a few projects not just one. Now when I’m buying fabric I buy at least one yard, sometimes two. That way I can also cut an FQ to send as a RAQ if I need to send one out.
Judy has posted her October Hour a Day quilt. I've wanted to try the maple leaf block and this is just the quilt to do that. I can't wait to get started.
I have a blog etiquette question. I certainly appreciate all the comments I get from everyone, but I'm wondering are you supposed to acknowledge every comment personally. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I don't want to offend anyone so if it's considered proper to reply to everyone I'm sorry if I haven't acknowledged your comment in the past. What do you usually do with the comment you receive?
I haven't had my Saturday class today. We are going to Boston today and attending The Who concert tonight. Tomorrow I have to work a few hours and then it is football time. That means I'll be hand quilting tomorrow afternoon. I'm off for the day. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
