Color Challenged? Try Palette Builder 2.1

As a color challenged person, SewCalGal has fallen in love with a new interactive tool created by the talented Anne Sullivan of Play Crafts.

Palette Builder 2.1 is so easy to use and it is FREE!  Simply take any photo from your computer, upload it and choose from the menu to match Aurifil  and Robert Kaufman Fabrics Kona or Hex Values to get an amazing color palette!

What if you are inspired by nature and want to capture the colors in a quilt or other crafty project?  Simply upload a picture and Palette Builder will suggest fabric and thread colors.  You can also move Palette Builder' dots on your uploaded pictures to try out different complimentary colors.

Fat Quarter Shop and are pondering what fabrics to use with it. Once again, you can simply upload an image of the fabric you are interested in and Palette Builder will suggest complimentary fabrics and threads.

Palette Builder is an excellent resource for those like me that are color challenged, as well as those that would simply like a helpful tool to see a variety of color choices.

If you haven't yet used Palette Builder, I hope you'll check it out.  SewCalGal thinks you'll love this tool too!

It looks like an amazingly useful tool. However, I can't download it to my iMac. Is it just for PC users?

That is such a neat tool -- I am definitely color challenged! I tend to use collections to make up for my deficiencies, but now maybe I can break out of my rut!
