I am planning a new quilt and want to use a dove grey background, with raspberry, china blue and ? Does anyone know of an app that is easy to use that will help me find the right combinations.

I have had a look around the web and not really come across what I need.

Thanks

Get some paint charts from your local decorating centre. They have thousands of colourcombinations in them.
Also, the colours you see online are rarely true to life, whereas with the paint charts, what you see is what you get.

I am looking at the floor rug in my hallway - it has those very colours (and variations of them, eg indigo blue) in it. It also has aqua and a darkish yellow/gold. The combination is lovely - I can see it working well in a quilt.

Speaking of which, perhaps a floor rug shop will give you some inspiration - there are some on-line, but as Lorna says, the colours are rarely true-to-life.
