One Response to “Six Color World: Color, Cloth, Quilts, and Wearables”

  1. If all you were in the market for was an excellent resource book covering fabric surface design, the investment in this book would be more than worth your while, but the bonus found in Yvonne Porcella’s “Six Color World” lies in her fabulous quilt and wearable patterns. Leafing through the pages of this instructional art textile book, one will find some of the most creative fabric surface design ideas in print. This book is a celebration of color and image design, and Yvonne is not afraid to explore every possible permutation of the color wheel in her foray into textile surface design. Basic Color Theory and History, Surface Design Technique, Dyeing and Painting Principles, and Image Transfer are thoroughly covered in the first third of Yvonne’s well-written and informative text, followed by a sampling of general surface embellishment techniques. The book wraps up with Home Decor, Quilts, and Wearables, along with some very creative Banner ideas. Not for the rank beginner, but for those who are looking to expand their talents and skills in textile and fabric design, as well as venture into the fiber art world, this book promises some stimulating and challenging projects for the experienced quilter and textile designer. Another fabulous book by Yvonne Porcella!
