Casting ShadowsAugust 2, 2007
I love adding visual depth and dimension to my quilts. Casting Shadows is an interesting book by Colleen Wise that details how to achieve those effects. She goes into a detailed explanation of the properties, shapes and colors of shadows. She also covers how light sources and nearby colors affect shadows, how to use perspective, color and value to create depth and finally, how to achieve all of this in piecing or appliqué.
All of that is topped off with a gorgeous gallery of quilts by the author and others.
