  • To find the value of a color (light, medium, or dark), try viewing through a clear piece of red glass or plastic. Another good method is to cut small squares of fabrics and photocopy them. Either way... instant values without the distraction of colors.
  • Purchase a door peep-hole from the hardware store and use at quilt shows or at home when you can�t stand back far enough. You�ll be able to stand up close and see the whole quilt which is really helpful when you are arranging pieces on a design board or pinning onto a sheet. Also, you will be amazed at some of the secondary patterns that emerge.
  • Take a photograph(s) when you are looking for or have found the �perfect� arrangement for quilt blocks. Seeing the whole quilt at once may help you decide if you like the arrangement or put a block in the �wrong� place. Later you can check your final photo if you get mixed up when sewing the blocks together. If you�ve tried several arrangements and have photos of each, you can compare to see what you prefer.
