This book -”Color for the Terrified Quilter”-
is based on classes which I developed in 1997
and have been continually teaching since then.
“Color for the Terrified Quilter” has been
getting rave reviews by students and teachers
alike. Comments include “ Great information -
easy to understand…” and “the mock-up blocks are
a super-easy way to try out color combinations”.
If you haven’t tried the mock-ups, please do -
it’s quite painless, and you don’t have to
commit your fabric to the sewing machine! Once
you do decide you like your colour combinations,
try your hand at one of the 11 projects.
All of the projects are based on simple, pieced
Nine-Patch blocks. Check my

for a look at Blue Plaid Shirt. On the cover of
the book is a quilt - “Family Gathering”- that
is made using many different colour families and
simple Nine-Patch blocks. It’s just the value
differences that make the pattern interesting.
If you make it, you don’t have to worry about
what colour goes where, just get the
values in the right places.
