Overview

In quilts, as in life, few things are more important than color. Color evokes a mood, color sets a contrast, color is the spark that can make the everyday - extraordinary. Color Continuum is an exploration of how different approaches to creating a unique palette for a quilt can imbue it with emotion or suggest anything from an everyday scene to a classic painting.

In no 1. monochromatic, choose between five modern, geometric patterns which can each take a single central hue and build a rich story using subtle shades and bold shapes. Whether you're trying to coordinate with an existing color scheme or capture a particular atmosphere, the purity of a monochromatic approach can produce surprisingly lush results. These designs, inspired by elements of everyday life, each feature full-color illustrations, full-sized templates, and detailed step-by-step instructions.

Give it a try, and brighten your day - with a single color.

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 palettes 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 70 patterns in print, and including the tome you are holding in your hands, has penned five books on quilting. We can assure you, however, that there's more awesomeness yet to come.
