Color From The Heart - Print On Demand Edition

by Gai Perry

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many books on color theory and color in quilts fail to capture the interest of quilters by dwelling on technical explanations of color theory and ignoring the intuitive choice of color. In contrast, Perry admits gladly that despite her training as a painter and her strong technical background in color theory, she normally chooses colors with the heart, not the intellect. She emphasizes a hands-on approach to working with color by employing a series of lessons to illustrate seven effective and pleasing methods for choosing colors and fabrics for quiltmaking. In the process of working through each lesson, the reader learns color theory in small doses while making a small, illustrative wall hanging-size quilt. Seven quilts later, the reader knows how to incorporate myriad fabrics into one small quilt; how to pick a quilt color scheme based on decorative objects, photos, or paintings; and how best to use several tints, tones, and shades of each color in a single quilt. A good choice for all quilting collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
