    That was really interesting. I now want to experiment doing the warm out front and the swap and do cool out front to see the difference. I imagine the cool out front would look flatter and less dimensional?

    I am a newbie on quilting. I love video's that talk about the color wheel. my dilemma is what about the color of your painted walls. my walls are a white /gray (alabaster) what color would gray be in ??. I was told to use warm colors in my quilts .

    Yes, agreed you never disappoint. Your teaching is always thoroughly researched and thought through. Your recent tips on quilting using Iris pins was fab too - quite amazing. I'm now going to work through the colour workshops in your book as my 2015 learning project. One a month. Sorted. Thanks for your work and generous sharing.

    I took art lessons for a few years just because I couldn't make sense of anything when I walked in to a quilt shop. Color is everything, learning to know what it can do, is priceless. Please keep teaching on color. It is always about the basic. When I go to this site, I am hoping and looking for real knowledge and you do not disappoint. Betty
