Splash of Color Blog Tour

Happy Thursday! Today is my day on the Splash of Color Blog Tour! My friend (and blog sponsor) Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works wrote a beautiful book, Splash of Color: A Rainbow of Brilliant Black-and-white Quilts, and I am happy to be able to share a little bit about it today (read on to the end for a chance to win an e-copy of her book)!




Jackie's book is a beautifully done book with colorful quilts that are a delight to look at. One of my favorite quilts is called "Climbing Mountains."


I love Jackie's version of "Climbing Mountains with the bright colors, low-volume backgrounds, and the mix of black and white!



 Jackie also shared with me an alternate version of this quilt made by her friend Roberta...it's fun to see the difference with darker backgrounds and gorgeous solids!

Jackie's book has 13 different projects in different sizes, and they all feature bright colors mixed with black and white prints...the designs are traditional and modern--her book is a real visual treat! The projects range from beginner to more advanced, so there is something for every level of quilter.

You can see even more images of the quilts in the book here on Jackie's web site. Below is a full list of the other book reviews (visit these blogs on the dates listed to see more of the quilts and have more chances to win an e-book).

Hello Sherri, I'm loving your use of high contrast fabrics against the use of black and white. The use of bold and bright colours just freshens the look of any quilt in my opinion. Thanking you for the opportunity to win a copy of your e-book. Julie Beard
