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 Gallery 1- Traditional 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. 

This book is now out of print, but available as an ebook from Martingale and Company Publishing (see the links page).
