Next time you go to the store, go to the paint dept. and get some of those free sample paint strips. Nice color wheel for matching your shades and you can take to the fabric store to coordinate your fabric. Next time you give a quilter a present, you can even include a couple of these strips!

I bought some paint recently at Sherwin Williams Paint Store. They gave me, free of charge, one of those paint color swatch wheel things. So, I have every color there is in their paint!!!  But, I never would have thought to use it this way. Great tip!

What an extraordinary idea. I would never be even close to thinking of something like this. Thank you so much for this great idea.
