PostSubject: Swappers Likes & Dislikes - tell us your preference   Thu Jun 25, 2009 11:00 pm

Thought it might be a good idea to start a topic where people can post for now and future swaps what they personally like and dont like in colours, styles etc. Might help us all at different times to be able to take a peek and see just what it was that FibreBabble didnt like for example (that would be SBS done in repro fabrics)  lmao Anyway, give it some thought and perhaps answer some simple questions like

Favourite Colour -
Favourite Block Style -
Favourite Era -
Favourite Fabric Designer -
Favourite Fabric Type -

Favourite Holidays/Seasons -

Most hated colour -
Definatley Dislike -

Favourite chocolate type -

Other items you would like, could use or collect -


If you think of any more, please add them.  The other items section  you can put anything, seam rippers, s & p shakers, anything you can think of as people often like to drop a little treat in with their swap.  I tested it, you can simply highlight, copy and paste the list on this post into your own and write your answers beside each question. Add any info you can think of that might be of help to future snoopers  ;)

Favourite Colour -  Blues/Purples (actually ALL colors)
UN-Favourite Block Style - SunBonnetSue, Bear's Paw, Cake Stand
UN-Favourite Era - Anything before Sputnik
Favourite Fabric Designer - Robyn Pandolph, Sandy Gervais, Nancy Halvorsen
UN-Favourite Fabric Type - flannel, homespun.  I don't have anything against batiks, I just don't work with them.

I am NOT a fabric snob.  If it's a decent weave (not thin or flimsy or stiff), I don't care if it came from Wally World or if it costs more than a dinner with cloth napkins.

Definitely Dislike - Artsy-fartsy, whimsical, log cabins, stars (both regular and "wonky")... in fact, I might be a bit NON-traditional (surprise!)

I like scrappy quilts, Art-to-Heart patterns, most of the McKenna Ryan patterns, AnnAKa Designs (hard to find... examples are here).

Updated 2013:
My home is decorated in 'food' colors:  Cranberry, blueberry, pistachio pudding (that's a light green with a hint more blue than yellow), coffee, coffee with cream, grape and creamsicle/dreamsicle.  **These colors are NOT all in the same room**  

All the walls in my house are white. Many of the rooms contain a combo of cranberry and some sort of blue - navy or federal. My sewing closet has pastel mint green with daisy accents for curtains and other decor. I'm making room for some seriously orange art pieces/wall hangings in there.

Updated later in 2013:
I like Hello Kitty. But here's the deal: ONLY the one with the RED bow. This is my way of staying reasonably sane and not making Mr. W. sleep between Hello Kitty bedsheets or some other craziness. I have earbuds, a sewing machine, an iPod case, a wrist purse, an old-fashioned metal lunch box.

ALSO - based upon my dilemma when making an apron for a forum sister, I wear an XL and I'm about 5'9" tall.

OKay.... I love brights... I love geometric.... I love new and modern... I love different

I do not care for the drab colors... not too much into the antique or older stuff

but... I appreciate anything anyone makes.... because I love homemade items..

My kitchen is white and lime green... love highlights of striking pinks, blue and black
its my favorite place in the house... other rooms have Robin Egg blue --periwinkle
and soft olive green and creams.. livingroom is now a blue gray...accent orange and navy
I enjoy embroidery blocks for quilts... Metalic threads for quilting...unusual FQ's... applique patterns

Anything Xmas is fine...

I am NOT picky. You get what you want me to have. I'm going to be happy with whatever YOU choose for me. It's the thought that counts not the cost or gift.

Favourite Colour - black, gold, deep red.
Favourite Block Style -Stars

Favourite Fabric Designer - don't really have a favorite. Like Jinny Beyer, Carol Doak, McKenna Ryan
Favourite Fabric Type - Cottons, Batiks, I realize the importance of LQS fabrics. They are of better quality, but I do shop at JoAnn's all the time even though I know the fabric is not as high quality.

Most hated colour - baby pastels. They are great for baby quilts, but not for me.
Definatley Dislike - Nothing too gawdy.

I came here to see if my Secret Santa recipient had posted likes and dislikes, and found I'd never replied myself. It's kind of hard to answer, because I really am thrilled by and appreciative of anything anyone does for me! But - here goes. . .

Favourite Colour - no real favorite, but I like bright and happy

Favourite Block Style / Favourite Era - whimsical, fun, modern folk art

Favourite Fabric Designer - don't seem to have one

Favourite Fabric Type - hmmm - don't seem to have one of these either

Most hated colour - love them all!

Definatley Dislike - most repros (civil war, 30s) - Let me say, I love and admire what others do with them! It's just not the look that's right for me and my home.
