Cut up the included color card, start one of the 14 exercises, and let’s play!
The number one complaint of quilters? Mastering effective color combinations. The Quilter’s Field Guide to Color teaches readers just how to create them. Each of the 14 exercises is a new approach to color theory, challenging quilters to use their color cards (included) to explore a variety of possible combinations. Using the colors selected during each of Rachel Hauser’s inspirational themes, such as Seasons and How to Determine Your Style, quilters sew up a Bear Paw block or two as they progress through the workbook. This collection of blocks can all be combined to create any of the three quilt patterns provided. Forget the dry color theory! This book is fun, conversational, practical, and beautifully inspiring.
