British Patchwork & Quilting

Tools of the trade are covered first  including seam rippers! Next is a look at the colour wheel and then the 'Impractical Colour Wheel'. Different solid colour backgrounds are used to example different thread colours. Creating your own own Impractical Colour Wheel is suggested by using strips of fabric partnered with different colour and weights of threads.

Inspiration is drawn from nature. Sunsets, flowers and the like for both colour and shape.

There is a handy chart inside the front cover covering thread weight and needle sizes. The book concentrates on thread thickness, colour and how they enhance quilting.
