This is the best Color Theory site I have ever seen.

Remember way back when...a couple weeks ago...I posted an article going through the ins and outs of Color Theory for Quilters? Well this site, Color Scheme Designer 3 is the best color scheme generator I have seen yet. It uses the color wheel, so you click on the color you want and you have the ability to choose the see the color schemes in your color of choice - Analogous, Complementary, Triads, Tetrads, Analogic and Accented Analogic. I only explained Analogous and Complementary in my article, but if you look at the icon you'll quickly figure out what the others are. So say you have a focus fabric that is dominantly one color family; pop those dominant colors in thier color wheel and see what other "pop" colors you have at your disposal, or which will blend best before you spend the hours agonizing over choocing go withs. I know I'll be using this site a lot in the future. Oh, and did I mention it has specific color wheels designed for color blindness? So for my color blind readers and all the color blind quilters out there (I don't mean that facetiously; there really are quilters who suffer from color blindness and their quilts turn out wonderfully) who are feeling insecure about color choice, this is defintely worth a look. Choose your type of color blindness from the menu and it will take you to a color wheel that reflects what you see. How cool is that?!

Seriously. Give the Color Scheme Designer 3 a try! You won't be disappointed.
