Welcome to the first of four contests I’ll be holding here at the Color Mastery blog to celebrate being selected as a finalist for Best Craft Book of 2009 in the Ben Franklin awards.  I’m starting off with an easy-peasy contest for week one, and you won’t believe what I’ve got in store for Weeks […]

Master Color Using Only Six Fat Quarters

Maud shares her Renaissance quilt from the Color Mastery workshop I taught this summer in Dawsonville.  My students use their color journals to discover the three elements of color and build unique palettes around their favorite color.  Even if quilters start out with the same blue, they’ll develop completely individual color palettes.  They truly discover […]

Color Journal at Work

Debbie and I met at FoxTales Book Shoppe during my book tour, and she is a fantastic lady who was so ready to learn about color in quilting.  Debbie read Color Mastery and applied the lessons, and look at her results.  Wow.  Debbie made this beautiful quilt for her niece Karen.

Two New Color Mastery Videos Premiere

I’ve been gone so long during my book tour and at spring Quilt Market I wasn’t able to upload a May video, so here are two new videos: one for May and one for June. My goal is to do one video a month on color, and this month I answer the #1 question asked […]

Extreme Quilt Makeover Video

Developing Your Unique Color Vision in a Journal

How can you achieve your own color style, unique and stunning every time? Know yourself first.  Don’t be disappointed by using other people’s color choices in your quilts.  And rote practice of color theory without combining it with your personal preferences results in quilts that look like a color study. To use color effectively, you […]

Color Mastery Hits Local – and Annie’s Winner!

This week the local papers did articles on the book.  The first is print edition only, but their website offers a photo of me, and more importantly, you can see my stash in the background (scroll down and it’s on the left sidebar).  It’s well organized, but not huge by any means. And here’s the […]
