introducing: Color Continuum — no. 01 Monochromatic

color continuum -- no. 01 monochromatic

Color Continuum — no. 01 Monochromatic, a new book with five modern monochromatic quilt projects is finally here!

In quilts, as in life, few things are more important than color. Color evokes a mood, color sets a contrast, color is the spark that can make the everyday — extraordinary. Color Continuum is an exploration of how different approaches to creating a unique palette for a quilt can imbue it with emotion or suggest anything from an everyday scene to a classic painting.

Available on Amazon now and in the Carolina Patchworks store with signed copies scheduled to begin shipping around May 13th.

It will also be available on all the international Amazon sites but can take a while to show up on all of them. It does appear to already be on amazon.co.uk.

all five projects from color continuum — no. 01 monochromatic

In no 1. monochromatic, choose between five modern, geometric patterns which can each take a single central hue and build a rich story using subtle shades and bold shapes. Whether you’re trying to coordinate with an existing color scheme or capture a particular atmosphere, the purity of a monochromatic approach can produce surprisingly lush results. These designs, inspired by elements of everyday life, each feature full-color illustrations, full-sized templates, and detailed step-by-step instructions.

Angela Walters did the quilting on all five quilts. Amazing work once again!

If you’re an Instagram follower, you’ve seen random mentions of the Stack of Happy. More about that tomorrow. A preview is below and if you poke around the new blog design, you can find out even more.

One more teaser… notice that it’s no. 01? Vague, random Instagram pictures start again next week because I wouldn’t have put the no. 01 in there if there weren’t a no. 02.

But for now, we’ll enjoy another wonderful release that is totally me.
