Celebrating the Art of Quilting

Six Color World: Color, Cloth, Quilts & Wearables by Yvonne Porcella


It's easier than ever before to create extraordinary hand-painted fabric for all your projects! From subtle to dramatic, from delicate to vibrant- Yvonne Porcella uses color in dynamic and unexpected combinations. Now you can learn her techniques, and discover the joy of designing unique fabric for quilts, garments and other crafts.

In Six Color World, Yvonne shows what supplies you need to get started. You'll make a color sample to learn the effects of mixing different paint colors. Exercises in surface design allow you to experiment with a variety of methods for putting paint onto fabric, using resists, salt, brushes, sponges, rubber stamps, and more. Ideas abound with Yvonne's techniques for transferring images to fabric and suggestions for surface embellishments. Basic directions are included for many projects, such as wallhangings, vests, jackets, and celebration banners. Full-color photos throughout the book will spark your imagination and inspire your own original works. Quiltmakers, fiber artists, home sewers, and garment makers of all skill levels will love the new creative options provided in Six Color World. Yvonne was inducted into The Quilters Hall of Fame in 1998.
