Matching threads for the Luxe fabric challenge

For those of you who are participating in the Michael Miller Luxe fabric challenge for QuiltCon 2017, remember that the entry deadline is November 30th.

I just spent ages at Fabricville looking for just the right shade of coral thread for mine, and thought I'd share the matching colors for the fabrics in this challenge.

Since the print fabrics in this line have a few different shades in them, you have some flexibility with the navy, teal and grey, but these are the ones I've gone with :

Coral - 4860 (cotton)
Navy - 266 (polyester)
Turquoise - 610 (polyester)
Grey - 110 (polyester)

And for those who prefer Aurifil, the below shades are the closest* :

Coral - 2225
Navy - 2745
Turquoise - 2810
Grey - 2606

If you have found other matches, please share them in the comments below!

*under natural light, the match is slightly different under artificial light

  1. Totally agree for the navy Aurifil. I have a grey, 2605, which is darker than the silver, and lighter than the charcoal, but right within those tones.
