Monogrammed Towels: Picking Colors

This project shows how to choose colors that will stand out when monogramming on patterned backgounds. It also breaks some of the traditional rules as they apply to stabilizer.

I bought these towels on clearance last summer and decided to add a couple of monograms. Loved the background print, but how do you choose what color to use?

Fuchsia is a favorite, but it would blend in. I wanted these monograms to pop.

First, choose a font that is bold enough to separate itself from the print. There are many built into your machine, or buy one now while they are still on sale!

For contrast, I chose the two colors that were least prominent: black and green.
