You will soon be on your way to mastering color theory including transparency, luminosity, depth, & more. A must-have reference book. (The Applique Society Newsletter, January 2015)

Color Play was originally published in 2000 and this edition has been updated and expanded to include over 100 new quilt photos. This book is a comprehensive study of the colour wheel, starting with a look at pure colour, tints, shades and tones. Examples of quilts which demonstrate each area are accompanied by descriptions of how colour is used and why it is effective.What follows on from that is an exploration of colour plans, from monochromatic, complementary, analogous and split-complementary, with more in between and beyond. Values of colour are explained, as are the descriptions of selected colours and how they make us feel, where they are on the colour wheel and where in the book you can find more information about them. The grand finale is a study of 24 colours in great detail showing different colour schemes that work together with diagrams of quilt blocks to demonstrate.This is a fantastic book which benefits from the update because the wealth of new quilts works so well in its favour. The author relates her observations about colour to quilt schemes, what effects particular colours have on the way they are perceived and how to build up your use of colour by creating a personal ‘Colour Plan'. To have such an extensive array of colours that are explored in such detail is a great way of getting to grips with starting to create colour schemes for work.This is a great book for all textile artists and anyone who feels unable to get to grips with how colours work together.
