If color makes you nervous, this is the book for you! It is full of truly practical information for quilters of all skill levels. This is not a book that is full of 'color theory'. I don't want to imply that theory is bad, because it isn't—it's more that I wanted to write a book that had practical, easy-to-understand advice about how to use color.
The first half of the book is full of all sorts of color information that you may not have heard before. For instance, did you know that every quilt has a foreground and a background—even pieced quilts. Once you can see the underlying structure of a quilt, it is much easier to color.
There are 10 pieced and appliqued projects that I designed to focus on specific aspects of color. Most of these quilts are both quick and visually interesting.
