  43. Red and white is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fun block! I really like blue and green together. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My favorite combinations use muted colors, more than brights. For instance, golds more than yellows or eggplant tones more than royal purples. I think colors like that are warmer and more inviting to the eye. Which is why I love your block so much, it really lends itself to endless possibilities in color combinations! Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I find myself drawn to red, black and white for the most part - although I do use any and all colors in my quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm all over the place with color, Weird as it sounds, I love ocean blues, golds and greens, then there are the Purples, reds and oranges that send me rushing to the design wall. I just can't choose one. and your block will look great in every color. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really don't have a favorite color combo. It all depends on the quilt & what moves me!! My favorite color is blues - all shades of blue! But not everyone else likes that so I let the pattern move me :)
