" We all have combos we are uncomfortable with. Let's explore the *why* of it..." ~ Michelle
The list of colors I don't like together is much smaller than the one that I do. I think there's a place for most color combinations, even ones we don't use very often. Some people, for example, don't like to put bright hot colors together because they seem to vibrate. Personally I don't mind that.
I think the colors I don't like are the dull, muddy ones. A new quilt shop opened near where I live recently and I was so disappointed to learn that they are focusing on the "country" color palette—the deep dull reds, wedgewood blues, dark greens, mustard yellows, and browns and beiges that are used in this genre of quilting. I have no problem at all with the incredible quilting skills involved in the making of these quilts (in case anyone is offended by my opinion)—I just hate the colors that are so often used.
Here's an example that uses the Thimbleberries line of fabrics—
And some of the fabrics themselves.
I don't even have a problem with the prints, but the combinations just don't do much for me. Check out what others have to say on this topic here.
