Have you been to http://design-seeds.com/index.php/search to see all the cool palettes they have? You can pin them on Pinterest (and other places) or even email them to yourself. What a cool easy way to find great quilt palette colors! I have used actual paint palettes to choose my fabrics before but haven't used this site yet, I am bookmarking it for the future.
I picked out a few palettes that spoke to me (can you tell I love the color of the sea?) but I was thinking it sure would be fun for us to choose a palette for a quilt challenge or something down the line!
I see the Boston Modern Quilt Guild chose red nails (below) and they are challenging themselves to make a modern mini quilt! I will be checking out what they come up with later on!
