March 2018 Book of the Month

March 1st, and time for a new Book of the Month selection. This one goes to Becky Goldsmith's The Quilter's Practical Guide to Color.

Yes, it's time to move on, though I certainly enjoyed Improv Patchwork over the last two months as verified by Hippo Blue, Love MatchZee Quilt, and a fourth creation revealed tomorrow. It certainly was fun to just cut fabric and sew,without a lot of seams to match. 

Maria did a pretty good job discussing choosing a color palette, and I wish I had explored color schemes a bit more, but was hesitant to cut into my solids. To get over that, I want to explore color a bit more, as choosing color schemes is something we deal with every time we make a quilt. I hope to  share some of Becky's insights of color relationships, and make us all a bit more confident. 

Update: for more from this book, see Book of the Month Update.

For now, I'm back to finishing up a few projects from last year, one of which is participating in the Small, Smaller, Smallest hop, sponsored by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Tune in on Monday to see the project, and get the list of all participating bloggers.

Happy Quilting!

  1. As always, I am interested to see what you learn. I am sure I could use some color help myself! Maybe a lot!

    1. I'll try not to disappoint! After reading the first few pages, I've already learned a couple things, which I'll share later. I'm really liking her conversation style and examples in this book. A lot of color books can be very cut and dry.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
