    a solid or one that reads as a solid to blend the other fabrics together/ something that cooridinates with the focus fabric

    I am not sure of the exact definition of blender, but, to me it is a color that blends into the other colors you are using

    example: If you have pink, red, yellow roses and wanted another color, you would call on a blender, something with pinkish tones, redish, yellowish. I purchased a blue blender for what I am going to be doing. I can best explain it to be like 2 or 3 shades of blue

    this is an example

    I'm bad about blenders, every time I build my stash, I come home with the patterns/florals/paisleys/calicos I love. When I plan a quilt, I always have to buy blenders.

    I think of blenders as single colored, but not solid colored fabric - kind of mottled. Some with a little contrast and some with a little more. I love them - it's hard for me to buy solids if I can find a blender that'll work.

    And on a related note, when the quilting isn't going well, it is an appliance that makes the most delicious margharitas to help relax the neck and shoulders. So no matter which "blender" you talk about, they all improve quilting. lol
