lilysvn, we made quilts, plain , flowered,mixed up..all different. etc. My Aunt and Mom it was use our eyes. For matching was important, an art. It was wicked what really worked, and getting that praise. Even having your Mom help pick out colors. Works with many things. So never would was told about this. Eyes only.
