I own several books on color theory for quilting, have studied and applied color theory extensively, and feel confident selecting colors for quilts. So why would I want another book on the topic? The answer is because The Quilter’s Palette by Katy Denny is different in a few ways, fun to read, and has instructions for over 50 quilt blocks.

Chapters 1-3 discuss how to create different visual effects by varying color, patterns, and texture. I especially like the emphasis on finding patterns within quilt blocks and selecting fabric colors and designs to highlight them. The author also touches on embroidery, appliqué, embellishments, and quilting designs.

Chapter 4-9 have a color theme with accompanying fabrics and photographed blocks to illustrate the theme. Each color palette has three blocks to help you visualize how block selection can change the effect of the fabric choices, and a quilt example. The color combinations or themes are fun! The Pastels section includes: Peach Melba, Ice Cream on a Sidewalk, Summer Sky, and Sugared Almonds. Neutral palettes include colors found in a Coconut, Fresh Oyster, Sheepskin Rug, and Cappuccino. There are also palettes of Rich Colors, Cool Hues, Warm Tones, and Clear Contrasts.

Chapter 10 provides instructions for constructing over 50 blocks used throughout the chapters. This a great bonus not found in many color theory books. The blocks are a versatile variety of traditional blocks shown in mostly interesting fabrics with modern slant. I think The Quilter’s Palette would be a worthwhile addition to a quilter’s library because of its interesting twist on color theory and the instructions for 50+ quilting blocks.
