First, I have to thank those of you who have sent me your scraps or are digging through your stash! THANK YOU!!!
A few people have asked for an idea of what colors I need, so I took some pictures.
Blues: I'm going to stick in the dark range - fabrics that read solid/near solid:
Ambers: The inspiration here is the song "Amber" and the line in the song that is guiding my color scheme is "shades of gold displayed naturally". The color values will graduate light to dark in some fashion. right now I'm thinkning light on top, dark on the bottom, but it'll all depend on what I end up with. hard to tell in this picture, but the top left is a metallic - but not a lamae.
