I love these five packs of color. They are created in the "dark light 123" crossover method, taught to me by my dye buddies, Cynthia and Christine. Its a lovely blend of 2 colors, which also produces different values. They work so beautifully together. Directions for this method can be found here:;postID=6314322770481458600;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=57;src=postname

The combos I used, starting from upper left, proceeding clockwise:
1. golden yellow with better blue green
2. lemon yellow with deep orange
3. golden yellow with fuschia
4. turquoise with navy
5. amythest with cerulean blue
6. amythest with fuschia

I wanted to create some of these five packs for use in my personalized placemats. I love this one I recently made for a sweet youngster I know. It is pieced, batted and backed, stitched and discharged.
And here she is...sweet Cecilia.
