Colourful Friday - Favorite Colors

One of my favorite colors is not really a "color" ......... CREAM. It goes with almost anything and does not look harsh like white can. It can look modern or antique, sophisticated or rustic, vibrate or subdued, all depending upon which direction you take it and what colors you pair it with.

This is one of the wall hangings I hope to get completed this year. The blocks are from a 4th of July themed swap I participated in a few years ago. I have more of them but really liked these four together. I confess the blocks lay to one side for more time that I want to confess too and then once the middle section was sewn together I still did not know what direction I wanted to take them in. The cream border was added last year and will also be on the back.
Navy blue also appeals to me. I wore it a lot growing up and in my early adulthood.
So if you want to participate in Colorful Fridays or just visit the other participants hop on over to http://daisyquilts.blogspot.com This year we will be sharing every other week instead of weekly. Next time round we will be doing Valentines colors :)

Wow I love hearing the colours that everyone leans towards and Cream is another surprise but it definitely works!
I would not be without cream in my stash Carol as I too use it in preference to white mostly.
Love your wallhanging.. it will be lovely when done and I can see why you like Navy Blue too.. very regal colours.

Hi Carol.
I do like the cream against the navy and the red. Love the look of your wall hanging, too.
Have a wonderful week end.

I hadn't thought of 'cream' like that but it's so true ... very versatile.
Thanks :-)

Hello Carol.

Oh I wouldn't have thought of cream,though we couldn't live without it in patchwork and redwork. Good luck with the blocks. I am sure it will be together in no time.
Happy days.
