Quiltalongs gotta have Quiltalong buttons. It's the official law of Quiltalongs as written in article 16 from code 4 of the laws of the founding fathers (and mothers, sisters and so forth) of Quiltingland. So grab a button, plonk it on your sidebar. It is not a legal commitment, just an intention of possible interest.

And get thinking about your palette choice. You can trawl Design Seeds for something you like:
Generate a palette from any picture you choose with bighugelabs (the picture I have chosen here is the Plain Spoken Quilt made by Rebekah Don't Call Me Becky and can be found in this blogpost here):
Go to Kuler and make your own palette or use one of the many palettes created there:
Go to Colour Lovers and make your own palette or choose from one of the many palettes created there:
Or let me know if you have another great colour palette website or tool we can all go off and have a play with.
