Panama Fruit Salad

 I love picking color palettes from photos that I have taken.
Here are two photos taken last year while on a cruise through the Panama Canal.


So I put the two together to make another entry into Lynne's Aurifil Thread contest.
I've found that my thread sampler for Aurifil and the color of the photos are not quite the same colors. I used the colors chosen by matching my photo to the thread sampler color card (the light blue is really teal on my color card).

1. 2600, 2. 2420, 3. 2840, 4. 1103, 5. 2440, 6. 2220, 7. 2930, 8. 2132, 9. 2260, 10. 2783, 11. 1320, 12. 2615

Thanks for stopping by,

very cool, how did you PICK the colors? in photoshop?

Love the colour combination. A clever idea to use a photo that caught your eye. I would love to know what program did you use to extract the colour clips from the photo?
PS: I hope you win the challenge, you would have fun making a Panama inspired quilt.
