Although my designing is in needlework, I found Ms. Thomas's book very helpful and the only reason I did not give it five stars is that most of it applies to quilting and fabric. However, her discussion of design is broad enough to be useful to anyone in an allied field. She presents many topics of design: Examples are the Golden Mean, value and texture as they relate to balance, and proportion with the Fibonacci sequence. There are color illustrations using fabric (completed quilts). The topic of color and how colors work together is extensively featured. This is a book that I shall use for reference for years to come.

Quilting is art ( in my humble opinion) so knowing the 'rules' of design is important to 'draw' (no pun intended) from. Lots of learning here- a great resource when you're stuck with not being able to find the right color, or need to change up what you have on the design wall.
Our Guild did some of the lessons and it stretched our knowledge, skills and fun quotient!
Also, the price is well worth it since I will be using it as long as I quilt (an estimated 30 years or so!)

Really awesome book. If you take the time to read it, gives so many helpful details and many patterns to try. Great for a quilter or someone more advanced who does a variety of fabric arts.

I am in a little art quilting group and one lady had this book. It is organized into 12 color chapters, each showing a small quilt using that color and it's shades and tones. We will use this book and study a color each month this year. There are lessons beyond the colors that will keep us going for next year also!

I love the spiral binding of this book which enables the reader to work on a project while reviewing the steps in the particular project. This book is being used in our quilting class monthly and is chock full of ideas!

I'm having trouble deciding how to rate a book which leads me so carefully and admirably through the principles for colour choice and design but is illustrated by examples that I find unattractive at best. Is it just a matter of personal taste?

This is not a book I would ever look through while drooling over other people's gorgeous creations. Perhaps if I systematically work through my reactions, this review will be helpful to everyone.

The title describes the work as being for Fiber Artists which suggests a wider audience than the illustrations, which mostly show wall quilts interspersed with occasional examples of dolls, beaded wrist bands, etc. The principles apply to all fiber art but you wouldn't think so from the examples shown.

The principles of colour and design are carefully described and would give confidence to those of us who lack any formal art education. They are systematically and clearly laid out and cover everything comprehensive design books usually cover. The book is conveniently spiral bound and can be laid flat. The book concludes with 12 workshops demonstrating different principles.

Heather Thomas describes both the additive (magenta, cyan, yellow) and subtractive (red, blue, yellow) colour wheels, but uncompromisingly favours the latter, the "traditional painter's" colour wheel. She writes, "I have been using the Painter's [subtractive]color wheel and will continue to do so unless someone can prove to me that the Printer's[additive]wheel is better". I wonder if this is part of my problem with the works she shows. Some of my favourite books on colour are by Joen Wolfrom who bases her work on the additive wheel, claiming it is more appropriate to fiber arts. Having had no formal art training, I feel ill-equipped to judge between them, except to say that if end-results have any relevance, Wolfrom's luscious examples (her own and others') suggest the additive wheel may indeed produce more satisfying results.

In summary, I would say that if you want a conscientious and useful account of design principles, Thomas's book will provide it. But if you want to be convinced of the value of those principles, you should consider turning to other authors. Once again, however, I must stress that my unfavourable reaction to the illustrations may not be yours.

This is a great book on color and design. Heather Thomas provides clear information and numerous examples. The twelve workshops assist readers in cementing the information learned by applying the lessons. I've bought this book for quilting friends so that we can all learn about color and design together.
Helped me alot with my quilts! They are brighter and colorful.
