    Default Coordinating Solid for piecing

    I purchased the Home Sweet Cabin fat quarters pack by Windham Fabrics. I need to purchase a solid fabric for piecing (I am using the Slice of Life Quilt pattern). Can anyone at MSQC recommend a coordinating fabric for piecing that would match this line? Wyndham does not have any solid yardage to choose from, and it's hard to choose colors online. Thanks!

    That's why you need the Kona Cotton Solids swatch card, it shows every single color swatch they make. I bought mine at EQuiter for around $30.00 pricey, but worth it. I think M* has it, but you'll wait your life away waiting to get to you, EQuilter will ship fast in 2 days you'd have it from ordering.

    If you scroll down towards the bottom of the page, M* recommends four coordinating solids.

    Sorry, the screenshot is small. They recommend:
    Kona Cotton -- Coffee
    Bella Solids -- Betty's Brown
    Kona Cotton - Oyster
    Designer Solids - Radish

    I also recommend the Kona color card, I purchased mine from Fat Quarter Shop...M* was sold out at the time.

    Moda has a palette builder online; you can upload a photo of the fabric and it will search for matches for you. It is not 100% accurate...computer monitors vary, but it will give you several ideas. http://blog.modafabrics.com/palette-builder/

    I didn’t know you could get a swatch card, mine is like a piece of yardage off the bolt.

    It is a little pricey, but it definitely helps...my LQS doesn't carry much by way of solids. I looked at the panel, but Kaufman's own website says: This fabric is a digital representation of the Kona(R) Cotton Colors and is therefore not expected to match the actual Kona(R) Color Standards. For reference only.

    The card has small swatches of fabric. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...40-color-card-
