"Work your way through each of the concepts and practical exersizes in Christine's book and you'll gain the color confidence you've never experienced before. As Christine says " it's more about practice than talent." This book is perfect for teachers, bee groups or individuals." -American Quilter, 4/11/11
"Wow! The Quilter's Color Club by Christine Barnes is a quilter's eye candy! It has both beautiful colors and beautiful quilts! And Christine Barnes tells us how we can make our quilts look like these! I consider myself an experienced quilter and I learned a lot about color in this book! The Quilter's Color Club has given me all kinds of ideas for my future quilts! Included in the book are concepts of the color wheel and some of the color possibilities; transparency, where it looks like you can see through overlapping fabrics; luminosity (about quilts that glow); value (whether the fabrics are light or dark); color temperatures (warm or cool); using fabric patterns and textures and lots more.
The book is planned for groups of people to get together and work with colors together, but Barnes tells you how you can work on color by yourself (a group of one!). I think that even a small quilt guild could work through this book together. Again, wow!" -Bowers, Judy, 3/1/11
"If you need guidance on colour, and most of us do, you'll find it in this book. Learn about value, intensity and also creating transparency in your work. Twelve exercises will help you to explore your new knowledge and see how it works in practice. There is also guidance on how to start a colour club. You can also work with the book as an individual on your own. The samples of work are wonderful, encouraging and inspirational. The guidance is clear and easy to follow with exercises that anyone can try. The projects include a quilted sleeveless jacket. Instructions, projects, gallery score on all counts. This is a great book, recommended for any quilter with more than a passing interest in colour."

From using 'magic' fabrics that give quilts depth to starting a swap club for fabrics and quilter experimentation, this packs in new ideas. THE QUILTER'S COLOR CLUB teaches a practical approach for using color to bring quilts to life and advocates starting a Quilter's Color Club for swapping fabrics and experimenting together.
