LT said...

Green - I love it, but I haven't managed to collect much of it. Thanks!

Nancy said...

I have very little pink...just not a pink girl I guess... I really need to amp up the solids too...

mennikelly said...

I do not have much yellow in my little stash.

Andrea said...

close to no pink..also very very little yellows.

sandandstarfish said...

Orange. I'm always short on Orange. Have a sea of blue but never any Orange! Thanks for the beautiful giveaway!

Tiffany said...

Im lacking reds ... not a big fan but love them mixed with other colors like aqua or black/white.

Ashley said...

I have many colors but very few neutrals.

Michele said...

If by underrepresented, you mean the color I hoard the least, it would be yellow! Those linens look interesting.

Di said...

I've only recently come to appreciate how much of a lift in my quilts the colour yellow can give, in all its forms - lemon, deep gold, buttercream etc - yet I have very little.

Gina said...

I have very little red in my stash. Also lacking in purple. Nice giveaway.

Marci said...

I could use some reds. They seem to be gone as soon as I get them!

Angie @ craftedAngles said...

Yellow - It is hard to find bright yellows :)

Dana said...

I don't have much yellow, although it is a color that can make a quilt "pop"! My favorite colors are red and purple, and I have quite a bit of those two colors!

Charlotte said...

I have hardly any reds - and what I do have are all the same!

Jane said...

I have few greens than any other. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

Mary said...

Golds-browns-beiges. Even though the colors are such basics and good blenders, and favorites. Maybe that's why there are so few of them in my stash. I use them up right away.

Kristy said...

I have hardly any pastels - most of my prints are bold.

Linda at Roscoe's Ma said...

I have very few reds. I love to see it in other people's quilts but I don't like to work with it. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary Sue said...

I would have to say that blacks and whites are underrepresented..I never seem to have any!

Natasha said...

I have one little piece of yellow. That would be the color that I do not have much of.

Dottie said...

Yellow .. always seem to be drawn to the blues and greens. Yellow definitely missing from my stash :)
Have a great day!

Elizabeth said...

I could really use more blue -- of all shades!

Merry Made Quilts said...

I'm really lacking in the blue department. Started looking for baby boy fabrics in my stash and there really was very little blue to be found!

Barb nelson said...

My most "understashed" color is green ... I love reds, blues, neutrals and blacks - and my stash shows it! I'd love to incorporate more greens! Thanks for the opportunity for the giveaway!!

Willa said...

Yellow in under represented.
Brown too for sure.

Toni said...

Almost no purple, which is sad because right now plum is one of my favorites. Thanks!

Joanne Lendaro said...

Greens...not a green gal. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

two hippos said...

Purple -- I like purple but have a hard time finding fabric in shades of purple I like.

Rori said...

I don't have much orange, yellow and grey. Not really my favorite colors, but they are needed in quilts and projects.

Jessica said...

Browns...they are my favorite so they go quickly!

Sarah said...

I am missing greens and yellows, boo!

TheAccidentalCrafter said...

I have very little brown, I needed some for a project and found that I didn't have much of a choice.

Laura said...

Not sure about underrepresented, but blues and greens are OVER represented. I probably need just about everything else.

Rose said...

Yellow...definitely yellow!

tnicholls said...

Blue... My fav colour is not really in my stash as I create more for others than myself..

Patty D from NC said...

red. i want to make a red and white/cream quilt but my stash isn't building fast enough

mommy said...

I have the least amount of purple, by far.

Natalie said...

red is the most unrepresented fabric in my stash

Monster Mum said...

I lacked neutrals n had too much pink :p

Sincerely, Sara said...

I'm a newby sewer so I'm pretty sure that ALL of the colors are underrepresented in my stash! I NEED FABRIC OF ALL KINDS!!!! lol.
mamaisaac09(at)gmail(dot)com

Sarah said...

I need more green, which is odd, because it's one of my favorite colors!

A.J. Dub. said...

Mine is definitely blue. Not much to be seen in the stacks.

Thanks!

bree scott said...

Green! I don't know why because there are so many pretty green fabrics

Cindy Lou said...

Love your blog!! The color that is underrepresented in my stash is orange as well. I love orange but don't have much of it.

Michelle said...

I love greens and blues but don't have either in my stash.

Dianne said...

I think that purple is most under-represented...definitely purple.

Sandi said...

I need more white fabric in my stash. Thanks for participating in Giveaway Day.

Sarah @ FairyFace Designs said...

Dark shades are totally underrepresented in my stash, I mostly have brights!

Ninu said...

Missing Red,Greens in my stash!

One Day In May, Creations by Melissa Grant said...

Wow what a great giveaway!! I would love to win! I had a need for a soft, gray recently, and when rummaging through the stash found it missing entirely!! How is that possible? : ) Melissa

Chiska said...

I discovered recently (really) that I don't have much yellow in my stash and it's my little girl's favorite color. Stunning.

Petit Design Co. said...

orange, purple and yellow are missing in my stash

Lauree said...

PINK! it is something that i am NEVER drawn too... which makes my wee girl sad. i have just never been a pink girl.

thanks for a lovely giveaway and chance!

Katrin said...

I definitely need more greens. And more reds. And more fabric in general!

Sallie said...

White because I use it up quickly. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kwilt Noob said...

I am generally lacking is solids, but I would really like to get some shades of grey into my quilts, I love how it makes other colors more electric. Thanks for the great giveaway!

2ne said...

Love this :-)
Golds, browns and beiges + autumn is my colours.
Wich you a great day.

Tanyia said...

Thanks for the chance! I have to say that yellow is my most underrepresented color! I do not think I have any yellow at all!

Michell said...

Seem not to have enough yellow

Leigh said...

Right now orange is in short supply here, too- But only because I recently finished an orange and green scrappy quilt!

Christy said...

Orange! I definitely don't have much orange.

Sasha said...

I don't have much of a fabric stash....yet :) but I noticed there isn't even a smidge of purple.

IRIS said...

Hello! I don't have many blue fabrics my stash! I love your blog too!!!!!!!

Peaceful Piecer said...

I'm short on purple. Thanks for a chance to win!

isabel f. said...

I do not have much yellow!!
thanks for the giveaway :)

MBMeadows said...

I dont keep many solids so I'd say solids (all colors except white) are way underrepresented in my stash! I'd love to win!

Sharon Pernes said...

I would say that orange is very unrepresented in my stash as well. I decided to do an orange and green quilt and virtually had no orange.

Brandi said...

my stash is still tiny, but I realize I don't have many neutrals.

Kirsty@Bonjour said...

I don't have much in the way of purple or the fushias. I s'pose I should remedy that. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Lee Ann said...

I do not have many purples which is odd considering my favorite color is purple!

Amber said...

I just organized all of my fabric by color last week and PURPLE is very lonely! Thanks for a very yummy giveaway :)

Justine said...

I think that red is sorely under represened in my stash! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jo said...

Running low on the yellows!

Donna in NW FL said...

I like yellow but notice I don't have much yellow in my stash!

melissa said...

I have no solids in my stash, at all! They are all prints.

Bailey said...

Mellow Yellow! I need to stock up as it is my daughters favorite color. What two year old does not like yellow?

Julie said...

i dont even really have a stash ... i have very little fabric

Lisa said...

im really not sure. I don't have alot of reds. I am always out of brown but that's because i always use it.

barbara said...

RED.
I actually went shopping for fabric and limited myself to Red fabric only.

Jen said...

I think that red is always the color that I don't have enough of in my stash. Thanks for the giveaway!

liberal sprinkles said...

hi, I have very little yellow fabrics!

Thanks for the chance :)

AnneMarie said...

Purple is seriously lacking in my world. Thank you!

epban said...

For some reason I don't have a lot of Red fabrics.

Bree said...

Red. For the love of pete, I always buy it, I swear, and it disappears almost instantly. I cannot keep reds on my shelves!!

Amelia said...

What a lovely rainbow - I'd gladly take them off your hands ;)
The colour that's most under-represented in my stash is definately purple, in fact I have hardly any at all.

Cara said...

Heaven!

Laurie said...

HAHA...your example could've been written by me! ORANGE! I like the color but don't use it much!

Kitty said...

Even though shades of green are my favorite, there aren't many in my stash.

Josurin said...

I think the color that is most under-represented in my stash is yellow. I'm working on collecting scraps to make a color wheel quilt and I need more yellow.

Val said...

Ornage! Your example could have been straight out of my mouth - it's my favorite color but I have hardly any of it. Trying to change that though...

Mary said...

I would have to say that yellow is the most under represented color in my stash. It is such a happy color, too.

Ellen said...

Purple is the least represented in my stash - I just never seem to go for it. I'm inspired by all the rainbow type quilts out there these days, so this will have to change! Thanks for the giveaway

1780c300-847a-11e0-8a98-000bcdcb471e said...

I pretty much have no solids...but I would say that red is the most underrepresented in my stash

Josie79@aol.com

Sarah@PingsAndNeedles said...

Ha! I have next to no blue in my stash (I have aqua and turquoise but no primary blues ) I have synaesthesia and primary blues scream at me! I'd love some of yours though >:)

amanda said...

I started a quilt this weekend and realized that I had absolutely no grey in my stash! We doesn't have grey? Me, that's who!

Bree said...

Honestly, I couldn't tell you specifically one color I know is short in my stash, but if I had to guess, I'd probably say pink. I'm not a huge fan, so I know I don't have much of it.

MN2NM said...

I was recently putting some fqs in a rainbow bundle and I realized how few yellows prints I have. Also, orange, but I think they are both strong colors and a little can go a long way!

Kiera said...

love reds...but have none!
kvanella@gmail.com

Katie said...

Well, I'm a noob, so I don't have a ton of any color, but I don't think I have a single piece of purple. What! This must be remedied.... Thanks for the opportunity. :)

Michelle said...

i'd love a chance to win! i don't have enough yellows in my fabric stash :) gooberific@yahoo.com

Ricki said...

I only have a teeny tiny stash so I don't have much of any color, but I realized when trying to get organized last week that I have no orange or yellow. Not a single piece of either color. I guess I've never used either color in a project.

Lanea said...

I think yellow is the most under-represented in my stash, though I love to use it with cool colors.

Kate said...

I have zero orange and actually, almost no yellow. :)

amber said...

I would have to say orange is not represented in my stash. I love orange too.

Katie B. said...

Purple! And I love purple. Not sure why I don't have more!

Belinda said...

Oranges, yellows, & greys are definitely underrepresented in my stash!

LynninMN said...

I have colors of every shade of the rainbow, but...where are my whites?

Flying Blind... said...

I could fib and say turquoise a I could never have enough, but in reality, 'neutrals'.

Jessa said...

Tiffany said...

Purple! I think I only have one piece of purple! I definitely need to keep my eye open for purple.

momma said...

grey, this girl doesn't have enough grey, I don't care that I have nearly no pink, but I love grey!

Tong said...

Brown is the most underrepresented colour in my stash, I've always had a hard time finding good browns. Thanks for the giveaway =)

Caitlin said...

Yellow. I'm making an all yellow log cabin and there is nothing left in my stash!

Ashley G. said...

I don't have much orange- definitely under represented! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

foodmathquilts said...

I'm working on getting more light neutrals and solids into my stash. I have a bad habbit of picking up fat quarters and remnants on sale - and they all need something to set them off!

Shayla Sharp said...

Well, I used up most of my oranges, but I'm almost always consistently short on yellow and green--even though I like both colors!

Baskets Of Quilts said...

I'm lacking yellow. But yellow is really hard to pair with since the shades really differ. I love all th solids!

Kimie said...

Um, ALL of them! I don't really have much of a stash.

Jenny said...

I don't have a huge stash, but I have virtually NO pink. Which is weird, because I don't mind pink at all!

Netta said...

My missing fabric is purple. This year my challenge is to create at least one purple baby quilt. nanasew at gmail dot com

Ellen said...

Pink.

Jessa said...

I don't have hardly any white in my stash! This could be due to the fact that I usually make quilts for my children :)

Donna said...

Brown - I'm not a brown gal! I use it sparingly when needed and if I can obtain the same look with another color I go with the other color. Happy quilting!

Alassel said...

Oddly enough, it's "warm" colors that are very underrepresented in my stash. I have tons of blues, greens, purples, and grays, but very little of reds, oranges, and yellows!

Kathryn said...

I don't have any aqua - I know that's crazy with all the red/aqua fabric out there. Kathie L in Allentown

Lee said...

Thanks for a great giveaway! Purple is vastly underrepresented in my stash.

Debbie said...

I just moved, so therefore I've been thru my fabrics and I must say purple is lacking the most. Not my color, but seems to be the color of this season :) Thanks!

Stine said...

Yellow...I have almost no yellow fabrics at all.

Diane said...

Count me in - I want to make a solids quilt - would love to win.

JayTee said...

Brown seems to be lacking in my stash

Marlena said...

I need more orange and can never have enough reds.

Caillean said...

I just moved and sorted through my stash. I'm lacking all kinds of solids, mostly white and cream. Thank you for this give-away.

Charlene S said...

Yellow in all its wonderous shades.

Victoria van der Laan said...

The color that I am forever searching for and seems the most under-represented in the fabric world is GREY! I also have a hard time finding good basic reds.

Jen said...

I'd have to say that orange and yellow are the colors I have the least of. The orange is no surprise to me since it's my least favorite color, but I was surprised I had such little yellow when I sorted my fabrics a while ago.

the frog princess said...

I find purple just isn't "in" right now. It's terribly hard to find! I'm trying to acquire some more. :)

LynCC said...

Browns. They are entirely underrepresented! Probably because they're not my favorites. I always have to go shopping to get those for my projects.

mean sarah jean said...

Right now it is red. I just used all the red I had in a massive quilt. I had to buy more, and used all that too!

Kerry said...

Green but I have been working on it!

kbzelazny said...

I have very little purple. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Dee said...

As a new quilter, I am just beginning to develop a stash! Red is probably the color I lack the most- and I don't have many solids at all, as usually I order coordinating solids when I get ready to start a project!

Shana said...

I don't have a huge stash but t try to have a variety but I would say black and probably gray are very un represented.

Sandy said...

I don't have as many purples as I think I should have. Thanks for the opportunity to win.=)

Debbie said...

I don't have much yellow - not something I use alot, so not much gets 'stashed!' Great giveaway btw!

Shelley said...

Red. I think it's my least favorite color.

Nugglemama said...

All of them LOL I have a mostly pink stash.

MeganAnne said...

pretty much every color since I don't have much of a stash to speak of at all.

Elaine said...

I hardly have any purple!

ewenique said...

What a generous giveaway, those solids are so beautifully arranged!

Having had a good look through my stash, it would appear I am deficient in the cooler side of the colour spectrum. I seem to have "sets" of every other colour but blues, greens and purples. This is funny to me because when it comes to my knitting, I tend to lean toward cooler colours.

Svetlana said...

Lovely, would be wonderful to win these.

Brigette Joy said...

I'm just starting my stash, so it is easier to say what I have the most, which is green and pink (my favorites!). So most everything else isn't represented. Of my other favorite colors, I guess blue and turquoise is what I need to work on next.

Delores said...

I don't have much of a 'stash' per se, as I usually buy for a specific project. But I don't have much yellow. Love your solids!

Jamie said...

I don't have enough lime green. It is such a good accent color, wish I had more!

ellenbrd said...

Yellow, it's hard to find a good one! Thanks for the giveaway!

harleywife57 said...

purple !~ I love it but do not have much !!

Live a Colorful Life said...

Every color is pretty well represented. Which means I probably have too much fabric. But I would love to win these strips anyway!

moshie said...

I seem to be very lacking in yellows...

Rebecca said...

My fabric stash is made up of remnants and scraps left over from projects past. I have no oranges or gray which I really love lately.

What a sweet giveaway! Thank you. =]

quiltilicious said...

Grey - but only because I can't seem to find enough different shades of grey out there...otherwise rest assured I'd have bought them by now!

Rae said...

I swear I’m not parroting you, orange really is quite absent from my stash, even though I love it.

My current stash is very heavily green and blue, with a little purple, yellow and red thrown in. But, it’s a small stash, so I’ll fix that eventually.

Beehave said...

Green is the most underrepressented! It's my favorite which makes sense that I have so little because I hardly ever make anything for myself!

Cory said...

I think brown is probably the most underrepresented color currently. And I love chocolate brown right now, go figure. Thank you for this great give-away. Take care and God bless, Cory

Kate said...

Yellow seems to be a color I barely stash. Too bad, since it is so sunny!

mascanlon said...

Yellow and red...I have lots of greens, blues and grays, even oranges but not much red or yellow.

quiltma said...

Well my stash is short in solids so that would help a great deal But I think my stash is lacking Grey the most.

Donna said...

purple, it is my least favorite color but at one time it was my favorite! -thanks for the giveaway - I'm new to quilting so this would be a fun win!

The Monkey's Mama said...

I have no white or black or gray... i would LOVE these strips!

RenegadeQuilter said...

I recently did sort and organize my stash and I realized that I don't have much if any grey fabric. Its becoming one of my favorite neutrals so I think I need some more of it.

badlandsquilts said...

Oooh, I love quilters linen! Easy answer - purple! I have very little purple fabric so usually use a Kona if I need it for a bee block. Thanks for the chance!~

{m} said...

Taupe...Actually, all shades of it. It is really not easy to find taupey fabrics.

Penny said...

I have lots of blue, so all other colours will be a welcome :)

Monica said...

Looking at my stash right now I see NO orange...such a shame.

vivian said...

I am in the process of cutting a lot of my stash into 5 x 5 squares and the red pile is pitifully small!

JOOSJE said...

My stash doesn't have much green in it.

Kristy said...

Yellow is probably the most unrepresented color in my stash.

needlegrrl at gnail

Thanks for participating in the giveaway!

marth225 said...

I'll go with maroons

woodbines-creep said...

I sorted my stash not so long ago for the 3x6 bee and discovered I had next to no yellow fabric (only 3 prints!). I've been trying to add more, but I've not been very successful, LOL!

senjosuki at yahoo

Audra said...

missing yellows in my stash, which is silly because yellow is my fav. color!

Jessica said...

Purple for sure! I just don't seem to be drawn to that color for some reason!

pbs said...

I am a new quilter so I don't have much stash but blue is not in it at all. Not sure why as I love blue. Thanks for the give away!

anniem said...

Pink is my missing colour. Don't hate it just don't seem to buy it. hhhmmmm??

Kristy said...

Purple and Yellow are so absolutely under-represented in my stash.

Thanks for participating in Giveaway Day!

Kristie said...

Thanks, Julie! I would say that yellow and purple need some attention in my stash, and also it is hard to find the "perfect greens".

Louster said...

I love blue so have tons of that but every once in awhile I need pink and never have any:(

robin said...

I do have very few oranges. Thanks for the giveaway!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I have a definite shortage of orange as that is my least favorite color to use - it's like someone running their nails across a blackboard - shudder!

Taslim said...

Looking through my stash, I'd say yellow is the color have the least of - need to remedy that! That and solids - I buy solids per project and never seem to have any around!

Sasha said...

Oddly enough, grey. I think it goes with everything and really makes other colours pop. So i'm permanently running out!

Shearow said...

Red. I love red right now (some weeks it's purple or orange). I definitely need a savings account just for fabric!
Lauren
shearow@gmail.com

Jody said...

Yellow seems to be the color that's missing the most and yet it's such a great color in quilts!
Thanks for a great giveaway:)
jodym7atyahoo.com

Dee said...

I'm low on both orange and yellow - two colors I don't seem to use very much and therefore don't buy very often. Although I think there are some gorgeous shades of both.

Quynh said...

Grey...I've been want to make a yellow and grey quilt and need to add more shades of greys in.

Diary of a Flutter.Kat said...

would love some strips thanks :)
I think red is my least stashed colour. So weird as it's one of my favourite colours to wear!

sukie said...

Purple for sure!

Jodi said...

Probably brown! And 68, really??? Superb!

Editfolt said...

Since I'm a rookie in this hobby yet, I would welcome all of the colors. Anyways my favorite color is purple and its shades.

Jill S. said...

Well, I've noticed a huge lacking in my purple section. Also browns are another color I do not have many of. What a fun giveaway!

Shari said...

As the mother of two boys, aged 9 and 11, I cannot believe I'm going to admit this....my stash is light on the color blue. In fact, the amount of blue and pink are just about even.

Monica said...

I don't have much of a stash yet, so pretty much all colors are under-represented! Thanks for doing a giveaway!!

4throse said...

I definitely do not have enough yellow - I'm always looking for the "right" yellow in my stash and never have it!
