    I made this book (it is a dollar store brag book) and have put snips of my fabrics in it so I can carry it with me to the quilt shop to match fabrics. Do you have another idea? this one works for me, but would like to know what other quilters do.

    As you can see I have marked how much fabric I have already and in some cases have indicated the pattern I am going to use for that fabric(s).

    these fabrics are designated for GRANDMOTHER'S FAN

    The blue and white is designaed for a drunkard's parth pattern called the LOVE RING. All the pastels are for another quilt

    the bottom fabrics need a solid color,so I have a note to look for black or olive green to go with these fabrics

    So organized! I'm impressed. I just take a small piece of whatever I am trying to match at the moment.

    Great Idea! Today I will get a book at the 99 cents store.

    One to fit my purse and always have on hand. Thanks!

    The nearest quilt shop is an hour away from me. So I try to know what I need or want before I go, otherwise I just wander around totally confused, like a kid at Toys R Us. :roll:
