How to Create a Color Pallete for Quilts

I've been taking the most amazing online color class over at Stitched in Color.  I have been wanting to take a color theory class for quite some time now.  This one is geared specifically towards quilters, so it's been incredibly enlightening and helpful.  The tone is also gently encouraging and full of guidelines while highly encouraging of creative freedom, trusting your instincts and developing your own voice. It's been an incredibly joyful experience; I cannot wait to read the daily blog post (class format is a daily blog post for several weeks).  Color completely thrills me and feeds my soul.

One of the tools that I've been introduced to through the class is the Palette Builder.  I've used various palette building tools in the past; however, this one has the amazing feature of pairing your colors to a Kona cotton. It also allows you to tweak the auto generated colors, changing the colors as you like.  It's brilliant.
