Oh... the beauty of the perfect shade of golden yellow, the yummy hue of a burgundy red, and the crispness of a crystal blue! Can you tell I love color? Specifically color in fabric. To me, a stunning piece of fabric is art in itself.

From my first hand-stitched doll dress to my latest quilt, focusing on innovative use of color has been my key to creating lovely things. As I tend to view color in fabric a tad differently than most people, my projects usually have a distinctive look.

In this book I will walk you through my design process and show you how I use color in fabric to achieve that "look." And by the end of the book you will boldly be using color in fabric to paint fabulous quilts,,,,,I promise!
In this newest edition of Pat Sloan's School House series, you'll gain the know-how to comfortably create colorful quilts without stressing over your fabric choices! Believing that a stunning piece of fabric is art in itself, Pat walks you through the design process to show how you can boldly use color in fabric to paint fabulous quilts.
