Jill said...

My favorite color is surf. I love the beach!

karen said...

I LOVE the Chartreuse for some reason.. It just brightens up the colors in this palette, and adds such a smile to my face in thinking how it is used there when it doesn't always fit in alot of projects.

DeverieAnn said...

My favorite is the chartreuse.... I live in Alaska and get to see the northern light in all it's glory and the green is often the color I see most....it's so beautiful here when the northern lights are out. And FYI....I just got your new book from amazon...go you! It's fantastic!

"Water" was my personal favorite here, too. That surprised me, since purple is usually my love. What I do love is these colors together. Wow!!

Dirt Road Quilter said...

I'm a water girl too! I have been so drawn to that color lately! I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that we live in the desert and are experiencing a really awful drought right now. In fact, I would have to have that color on the back too! Thank you for the opportunity to put my name in the hat!

Marian Beskosty said...
