Win - Fat Quarterly Quilt Colour Workshop

Would you like to win a copy of the new Fat Quarterly Book, Quilt Colour Workshop?  In this book we talk all about colour theory and how you can use it in your quilting projects.  We look at blocks in different colour schemes as well as plenty medium and large projects, each one made to show an example of different colours used in different colour schemes.


This quilt is an example of a red monotone scheme and is my variation on a Storm at Sea quilt.  


This is John's blue complementary quilt which is my favourite project in the book. 


This one is Brioni's purple triadic quilt - classic Brioni style!


This is an orange double complementary quilt made by Tacha with lots of lovely snippets of text prints dotted about the place. 


 And of course the most important bit of the book should be mentioned here too.


So if you'd like to win a copy of this book, just leave a comment and a winner will be drawn a week from today!

  4. about 15 yrs ago I went to a class.....the instructions were to bring a selection of light and dark colours. I took a pile of purples and lime greens..... its still a WIP!
    I do think the book will be an interesting read and quite useful to those of us not blessed with colour sense!

We have a lot of fun learning to quilt as we go shopping for fabric & cutting side by side. I buy 2 of every tool or ruler just about so one of us isn't waiting for the other to finish. One day I'll give her the machine she's been using and all the doubles that I've bought.
