    You didnt explain how to use it for quilting. You just told what was on a color wheel. This was not really helpful

    Thank you for this informative video. I am a beginner quilter and this will be very helpful for me when choosing fabrics. My question was answered by you to the first person that wrote. Now I feel more confident in going to purchase.

    On my color wheel I have six "values" of color for each main color. If I am choosing for a quilt, do I choose fabrics all in the same shade or is it ok to pick different values as long as I stay within the colors designated by the wheel - ie: contrast, etc.
