Contrast Trick

Pulling fabric from a stash can sometimes result in a drab quilt. To make sure I have enough contrast, I take a picture of my chosen fabrics with my phone and change the photo to black and white. If I can clearly see dark, medium, and light shades, I know my quilt will have enough contrast.
