One of the things that I loved to do for my customers is color matching and the best way to do it is with paint chips. Two weeks ago a customer sent me paint chips for a whole cloth that she is going to quilt for her son's newly painted room.
It's always risky to mix very light colors like the orange with very dark colors like the brown. In this case it worked just fine.
I couldn't get a photo of the whole thing before I shipped it because it was too windy outside. This is about a 3rd of a 108" square piece of fabric. I'm really thrilled with the way it turned out.
I was kind of hoping she would hate it because it would have been a perfect backing for one of my quilt tops. I suppose I could dye another....
