    I just don't seem to be able to put colors together:( I can pick a print, match solids to it and then can't decide what pattern to use. Am I destined to be a copycat? How do you guys do it?

    I have the quilt wizard program it was about $30.00 it is a basic of the fancy ones out now and it is a good way to try different colors and combination's before sewing. Tells you the size to cut yardage to purchase and everything.

    I'm not great at it either. As a quilter, you will find things you are really good at and the things you aren't so good at. For the things that just aren't "you", have friends help you. I have friends help me put colors together all the time. All quilters like to help other quilters.

    Happy quilting!

    I have a problem with colors too. How I make it work is to pick out a focus fabric I really like and then pull colors and prints from that. I was surprised to find out many other quilters in my quilting group do the same.

    I have a problem when I go outside my "comfort zone." I've been known to buy enough fabric for three quilts trying to get it right.

    My family says my quilts all look the same and I know it is because I tend to like the earth tone colors. I like primitive country and that's what I make.
