The Quilt Design Coloring Workbook calls on an unlikely but exciting muse to help inspire quilt designers: modern art. More than 90 full-page ready-to-color design prompts invite quilters to try new color combinations and pattern experiments. Author Thomas Knauer’s innovative reimagining of quilt design highlights the very principles that threw the traditional art world into upheaval 100 years ago, such as prioritizing balance over symmetry and simplicity over realism. By stitching together modern art theory with hands-on design and coloring activities, this interactive workbook bursts at the seams with creativity.
