    I was intrigued by this book for a while before I bought it. This lady's chosen color palette is unique and inspiring, but the construction methods are challenging! Not for beginners. This book provides new information for those educating themselves regarding color, and provides an interesting complement to Kaffe Fassett's quilt books.
