    Many of my quilts look too plain, I would love to get more color involved.

    Color is everywhere, but somehow combining them as fabric is much more challenging. This sounds like a great addition to my library!

    I love what I see. Color can be the hardest so I just look to nature for what works.

    These quilts are lovely and bright. I’m trying to incorporate more color into my
    designs. This book looks like a great way to learn.

    I love lots of color in my quilt projects. I also dress with color, I hate dull clothes, and stay away from the color black. Orange is my favourite color.

    Would love to be considered for the book.

    I don’t like pale quilts. The more vibrant, the better. I want something to catch your eye.

    I love so much those clours! I have one very plain quilt, but I like the soft colours also.

    These look like great quilts for college age ones. And maybe use some of the whooping big prints
