I have the Petals charm packs for this quilt and now I'm trying to find the right 'white' for the squares.
So many sources are sold out. Can anyone tell me which jellyroll was used in the original tutorial that Jenny made?
And, is there another jellyroll that goes with these charms?
Thanks, I'm stuck right now!

47002Here's what I have found, Robert Kaufmann Kona white is the most white, like a blue white, then Bella solid white is a little less bright white, then Bella solids porcelain is a grey white, snow is a yellow creamy white. Will that help? I don't know what your charm pack looks like, can't find that name on the quilt shop list.

That's a great side by side comparison. Amazing how many "colors" of white there are.

Thanks for posting everyone. And, Jean, your comparison photo is great. I ended up with the Bella Solid White and it's a pretty good match. My first selection was the Bella "Snow", thinking that Snow meant white. What a surprise to find out it is a beige!
My charm packs are the ones Jenny used in her tutorial, called Free Spirit Petal.

My guess is it will be less yellow and more creamy than the Bella Solid Snow. Need to be on the lookout for it when it comes back in stock.

After going through what I had to go through to gather these jelly rolls, now I'm afraid to unroll them and use them! I had to get them from quite a few different sources! Seems everyone was out of them!

Just be aware that Kona ( Robert Kaufman) and Bella ( Moda) are NOT the same and are not interchangable within the same quilt. If you are going to use Bella jelly rolls and you need to use a charm or layer cake in the same color from the same manufacturer to match up! Same with Kona by Kaufman. They are a slightly different texture also. Ask me how I know that!

I just found the fabric line, it is really pretty! Looks like the Bella Solid white is a very good choice!

Robert Kaufman "Snow" is what I used in my falling charms quilt and it was perfect. I also used it in my pinwheel quilt with the Modern Vintage Layer Cake and it was a perfect match.

I also used it in my son's Sashed 9P Wedding quilt and I loved it.
