Agnes, Thank you for posting these tips and hints. I have a terrible time putting fabrics together. I have a large stash but I can never seem to make anything work. Next time I'm trying to match up fabrics, I'll try out some of these tips.
I've combined these tips so we can find them again onto the group A Quilting Resource. If you haven't joined it, please do! The thread you are looking for is Tips on Color Coordination. We can keep talking here but sometimes these conversations disappear.
It's a subject that I am real interested in learning more about so I also appreciate everyone's comments.
