Back Cover Information

If you've ever dreamed of being an Impressionist artist like Monet or of capturing nature's beauty, light and luminosity in your quilt, Watercolor Quilts is the book for you.

  • Use the properties of color to create a watercolor effect in your quilts.

  • Build a fabric library with a wide assortment of varying colors, textures and values.

  • Plan your very own watercolor quilt, using the authors’ easy step-by-step exercises.

  • “Moosh,” smear and create color pockets or the illusion of curves and diagonal lines with 2” squares.

  • Create an original watercolor quilt no matter what your skill level and experience. (Design your own or use one of the six easy quilt patterns included in the book.)

Plus... Learn how to use the Ruby Beholder TM, a new tool designed to help you sort and arrange fabric squares by value.

Lavish color photography takes you on a fabulous journey through the land of watercolor and Impressionism as you design a quilt as rich in color as the paintings of late 19th-century artists. So, put away the paints and pick up your fabrics to create a watercolor masterpiece.
