Overview

Ever seen a super-auto-loco-ruption? How about a paleo-domus-esque? No? Well, learn how to make these and 2,206,264,748,501,248 more quilts in Color, Block & Quilt!

Wait, really? Well, yes. Color, Block & Quilt gives a perspective on three different aspects of modern quilts - color schemes, block designs, and quilts - and then puts you in the driver's seat to come up with your own unique combination. Choose one of 15 color schemes inspired by the varied beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Next, pick and choose from 15 brand-new modern block designs, ranging from whimsically swooping curves to art deco-inspired tilings. Finally, pick a quilt design to serve as a framework for your creation. You'll have everything you need to fuse these elements together into a totally unique quilt project that's unlike what any other reader of this book will ever come up with.

Think of this as your map. Bring along a little bit of creativity and a fondness for modern quilts, be ready for some fun along the way, and once you're done, you may just find yourself delighted with what you've created.

Meet the Author

Emily Cier desires only to live a normal life with her family in the Pacific Northwest. In order to achieve this goal, she must first rid herself of the plague of quilt designs, block ideas, shape concepts, and color schemes that invade her dreams, seep into her every waking hour, and deny her a moment's peace. Perhaps someday she will have satisfied the quilting spirits by translating all these ideas to concrete form. Until that day, she continues her daily toils to transcribe page after page of charts and illustrations.

Carolina Patchworks began as a way to fund Emily's fabric habit by selling the quilts she crafted, but has evolved over the years. Today, Carolina Patchworks has over 60 patterns in print, and including the tome you are holding in your hands, has penned four books on quilting. We can assure you, however, that there's more awesomeness yet to come.
