Principles of Color

Topics: News

Sew Mama Sew blogged about Susanne Woods', founder and publisher at Lucky Spool Media, book titled the Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making.  Susanne and Lucky Spool are sharing excerpts from the Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making in a weekly series at Sew Mama Sew, starting with today’s look at the Principles and Composition of Color in quilt making.  There are pictures of blocks to demonstrate the points made on hue, value and saturation.  She then moves to value and contrast.  She covers the principles of color as she writes patterns for 16 quilt designs.  While this book is centered around modern quilt making, the color concepts apply to all quilts.  This is a great article. 

Thank you to Sharon B for sending this article my way.
