Inspiring hues..

I love adore.. covet... want ...desire... all these shades of dark reds along with their coordinating color partners! Be the partners black, blues& grays , creams or cheddars, yellows!!

I fill these wire baskets to look at and inspire me!

Sort of looks like autumn colors in this pic but they are the darker red!
Now the Fall colors run a close second to the reds and of course toiles!!!
I do not buy fabric based only on the maker/designer.
Mostly it is by visual appeal to me be it designer brand or not!
Yes I will admit there are some lines of fabrics I will to be drawn to as they suit my tastes.
When I am in a fabric store or quilt show venders I just go with what visually appeals to me, hang tag is secondary. No fabric snob here.
I sew ..craft, quilts, clothes, bags, home decor so have many different fabrics/textiles in my stash to use on the project of choice.

This is how my table stays set up.
The fabric baskets are there where I can see them and enjoy all that yumminess!
Sometimes it is hard to decide when or if I will cut into them!!!
I do need to get DH's small wall quilt finished.
Yes will be using some of these lovelies to adorn the Civil War Panel.

So which colors inspire you or just make your heart sing??
Do you too 'display' a favorite fabric or fabrics?
Threads? me too..;-)
