I am glad that my questions have been answered by this book, and the techniques can be used both in traditional quilts and art quilts.
What Weeks and Bill do with these quilts is combine fabrics so cleverly that they literally appear transparent! It is quite an amazing technique and one I've not seen before.
Weeks and Bill talk about the relationship of colour to create a convincing transparency, they walk you through fabric selection and what doesn't work and why, as well as giving quite a few colour palette samples.
They then present 10 quilt projects so you can try this fabulous technique yourself - the quilts range from adventurous beginner to advanced level however there are also two beginner quilts. A few of my favourites are Mint Julep, Share and Share Alike, Whisper, and Next In Line.
As with Quilts Made Modern, Weeks and Bill give each quilt an introduction and tips on fabric selection, quilting, and colour variations, and there are also size variations.
So if you are an adventurous beginner or above - these quilts will give you a new way of thinking about and using colour that you might just love.
In terms of "Transparency Quilts" in particular - I love the play on depth and color that these quilts provide. I am happy to see a full book of this concept after the sampling provided in "Quilts Made Modern."
