I love colour. In fact I think it is my favourite aspect of creating things. I love seeing what goes together and how seemingly ugly fabrics can sing when placed next to their right partners.
It's often said in a quilter's defence that we cannot mix our palate like a painter. We need every conceivable tone and shade of every conceivable colour in our stash of fabrics - which is why we buy so much and is why I cannot use my airing cupboard for anything else!
I have even heard of quilters specifying who will get their stash of fabrics in their will. Remember Hoffi Coffi - I will love and take care of them!
