Sew Thinky Thursday: Week 5

Wow is it really Thursday already? Last week flew by.

Here's our question for this week:

Tell us about your sewing friends. Have your fabric tastes changed by having friends who like to sew? Do you like the same things or are you completely opposite?

I had intended to plan this out better - I just rambled about friends on my last blog post....

Emily and I with our {Modern} Robin quilts. 

For the most part my sewing friends and I share similar likes. However one friend, Emily, has a more refined palate. lol. She was an art student and I can only imagine that she sees fabrics a bit more intensely than I do. For instance for the longest time I didn't know what the difference was between blue purple and red purple... seriously. She would say "I don't like purples that are more blue" and I would not be able to tell the difference. I think I finally have it figured out. These sort of things make sewing things for Emily a little harder than normal. I'm always worried I'll use the wrong shade of this or that. I worried so much with the last swap we did that I made her list out all her favorite (or "acceptable") Kona colors, that way I could cross check the prints with her favorite solids. I hope I did good with it.  I've found myself being more open to Other Emily's colors recently - coral-y pinks and orange. I'm typically drawn to cooler colors.

Now it's your chance to link up. Don't forget to read and comment on some of the other linkups!
