A tip I learned back when for determining light, medium, dark...take a pic in black and white. It will show you values quite well. Also the ruby beholder or other such thing helps, but the photo is the easiest :D HTH!

On your vacation trip in the fall you should go to their store.You would be amaze.They do have nice fabric and nice price.I was in IL Sat to visit my dad.Thought of you.

I was looking at their wide backs a few days ago but not sure of the quality as I have never ordered from them before. Thanks for the recommendation.

This is going to be stunning - I love it already. 

Don't you like how happy Tula Pink's colors are!  I'm working with some of her fabrics on an EPP project called Tula Nova.  It's not as complex as the one you're doing, thankfully.  I wouldn't have the time or patience for that these days.  I admire you for tackling this.

I've been pretty pleased with connecting threads wide backings.  One of them (think it is called chambry) raveled a bit but otherwise nice.  And a couple of them have been as nice as very high end LQS.

Here is my very first lemur print element for Inner Cube!   

The are 2 sizes of Tumbling Blocks: 1" and 2".  When they are sewn onto the star, I had to remember to orient them all the same: all of "light" fabrics needed to be at the 12:00 position.

Then, the inner star wreath is made from the lemur fabric, which has colored dots on it.  You had to choose the color that most closely matched the colors in the Tumbling Blocks then fussy cut those specific color dots using a template.
