Again, thanks to DD for pointing me at this website Color Palette Generator.
Type or paste in the URL of an image (if you’re using Flikr be sure to use the photo’s URL (#2)only, not the html code (#1) under the image) into the URL of image box.
Click the Color Palette-ify button and voila!
I pasted in a link to a pic of a tiger lily from our front yard and it generated both a dull and a vibrant colour palette from the picture. What a way to pick colours for a project – whether it be a striped sweater, log cabin quilt, entrelac, fair isle, quilted clothing, striped afghan, even a colour scheme for a room! So many options.
