The Basics

Where do you start?

Much has been written on colour over the years and the topic can be quite daunting.

But you don’t want to know all about colour theory, you just want your quilts to work better from a colour standpoint. This course will set out a few simple guidelines to help you make more informed choices for fabrics.

The aim of a good colour scheme is balance or harmony

Too balanced can be a bit boring so a bit of accent is called for. Too much contrast and it gets hard to live with.

Not sure what any of that means? Don’t worry.

We’ll discover together some simple rules which set up the basics for you. Read on …


At the end of each lesson is a simple exercise where you will paste images and fabric squares into your workbook.

If you do each exercise, as you work your way through the course you will understand more and more about colour.
