    White! It’s so versatile.

  4. Jeneta says:

    Definitely white!

    I use a lot of black.

  7. Elizabeth in VA says:

    Shades of White.

  10. Di says:

    white as a background, but sash with whatever is a suitable

  11. Christine Graf-Gore says:

    Lately I have been into the yellow-creams, (verging into pale yellow). It’s been really sunny here the past few days, so maybe I am just trying to rush spring. SOOOOOO ready for winter to be over!

  12. Cecilia says:

    White is the color I use the most. Thanks for the giveaway. I love the houndstooth fabric.

    I use a lot of blues..over run in boy babies..lol

  14. Lis Martion says:

    Neutrals like calico color & white lately.

  15. Julie Fukuda says:

    I tend to use a lot of blues but not necessarily solids. Were I to look in my solid fabric bins, probably I have more shades of blue ready to use than any other color.

    I have been using more solid white lately.

  19. I’ve been using various shades of gray lately…both dark and light.

  20. hafza says:

    I used a lot of white solid… all range of white. Voting for only three this week is really tough…so many beautiful works!

  21. janine says:

    I used light pink for my last quilt because that was what I had on hand, but think I’ll be switching to white or cream for future ones.

  22. susana says:

    Los azules y toda su variedad de celestes pegan con casir todo lo que hago .Gracias a su increíble trabajo y a Katy.Cariños.

  23. Inge Christensen says:

    Oh my, the quilts this week are so charming, it was very difficult to choose.
    When I dó my own sewing, I guess green solid is my number one colour, simply because my stash is overflowing with green solids. They seem to grow in number lol. I really love green, it makes the Warmer colours shine.

  24. Djoekie says:

    ik gebruik momenteel veel paars


  25. Chris Jones says:

    It depends, but often neutrals like calico.

  26. mary says:

    I’m using Kona’s Stone most lately.

  27. wilma young says:

    I like to use a little bit of red in a lot of my quilts. I use shades of white often too.

  28. Peg says:

    White is kind of my go-to solid, but it’s not actually solid usually, more tone-on-tone.

    Great work everyone! It was hard to select only 3!
    The solid color I use most in my quilts… Blue!

  30. Lee says:

    I am not really partial to any one colour. but if I look at my scrap bins, blue and white/lights are over flowing these days.

  31. Susan says:

    I would say it is a tie between blue and green.

  32. Rose says:

    The solid colour I use most is blue.

  33. Cindy A. says:

    If I use a solid it is yellow which is more often than not the background color.

  34. Peggy Gibbs says:

    I use Ecru quite a bit when I sew.

  35. Rhonda Marshall says:

    mostly creams.

  36. I love to use a lot of bright colors, but blue is my favorite.

  37. Marjie Moran says:

    Seems to be red, judging by my stash pile.

  38. Vickie Maloy says:

    I can’t live without a green of some shade.

  39. [...] to everyone that entered quilts and voted for last week’s Quilts with Snowy Friends Show & Tell [...]

  40. Loly says:

    Pink. Many women is that we are home!

  41. Rebeckah says:

    I use dark blue. And that is because the quilts I make are all tardis quilts. Though when I make other quilts I usually use a pannel and not a lot of solid.
