Showcasing ~ Choosing Colours & Fabrics for Quilts

There's a reason fabric companies sell bundles of pre-cut fabric. They're colour co-ordinated, and in most cases will work well in the same project. But what if you want to pick and choose fabrics yourself? This is where I come unstuck. I know what works, or doesn't, when I see the fabrics together.

Learn how to choose colours & fabrics for quilts - focus print, hue, tone, contrast - From My Carolina Home

Carole, from From My Carolina Home, shows how to choose colours and fabrics for quilts. With real life examples of fabrics, Carole talks about focus prints, hue, tone, contrast prints, values and print size. It'll all make sense when you read it.
