Quilt book review

What a drippy, dreary, rainy morning in Texas today. I took a chance to look at some quilt and art books. The first. "Black and White Quilts by design" by Kay M. Capps CROSS  is a visually interesting book featuring quilts that are most black and white with an accent color of a bright hue. She uses Red or Pink mainly, with an occasional lime green. I didn't really like most of these quilts, with the exception of a quilt called "school house rock" which had a funny skewed graphic school house. What I did like about the book was the fabulous tutorial on value, scale and zingers. without the confusion of color these black and white photos clearly define these in an understandable way for any quilter.

I think the whole point of quilts are that they are the brightest most cheerful things you can own. Black and white seems awful bland.

Keep up the interesting blog!
