I have spent a lot of time on the computer, and I even figured out how to get hex codes for my Kona cottons and some other solid fabrics I'm planning to use. I tried to find a list of codes for lines of fabric online, but I couldn't. Instead, I uploaded screen shots of fabric swatches to Palette Builder by playcrafts, and got the hex codes from them. I had read a lot about Palette Builder from other bloggers this past week, so I also admit to spending
Alas, I didn't like my design. I'm still messing with it. So I did what any quilter with quilter's block would do. I went shopping, venturing out in the cold to the closest quilting store (really close--like a few blocks away), and I picked out these for the backing and binding of the flimsy I finished last week.
The green/pink/aqua print is for the back, but I'm going to include a strip of the yellow in it and then use the yellow for binding, too.
I don't often have two quilt projects to work on at once, but this worked out well because I definitely need a break from planning. After basting, I'll try to FMQ my way out of quilter's block and then maybe that other quilt idea will work out better for me.
If anyone knows of a list somewhere of hex codes for the colors of various solid color fabric lines, I'd appreciate it if you'd share. I know there's a way to download swatch colors to some of the illustrator/picture software programs (for example, playcrafts has a tool), but I don't have those programs on my computer. (Yet.) Otherwise, I'll keep building my little file.
I'm linking up today with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and with Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.
