Ever have a difficult time deciding whether a fabric is a medium or light value? Or a medium or dark value? Break out that digital camera!
After you’ve assembled your fabrics for a quilt, organize them into piles by value — dark, medium, and light. Take a digital photo and load into a photo editing program (Picasa, which is free, works great for this.) Then use the option to change the photo to gray scale. You’ll quickly see which fabrics need to be moved to a different pile.
