Today I get to tell you about a fantastic new book! Splash of Color: A Rainbow of Brilliant Black and White Quilts by Jackie Kunkel is a beautiful collection of quilts sure to inspire you!

Splash of Color by Jackie Kunkel - AmysCreativeSide.com

Jackie has been a friend for a number of years, and I’m so excited to see her add author to her long list of accomplishments. She’s an excellent teacher, and her encouraging and precise voice comes through in the writing of the patterns and instruction in Splash of Color. There’s a little bit of everything in the book, with simple piecing, paper piecing and curves you will definitely find a quilt that speaks to you!

Crossroads - Splash of Color by Jackie Kunkel - AmysCreativeSide.com

Crossroads is a stunner! I love the variety of prints in the black and white fabrics, and the colorful bits are so dynamic.

It's a Celebration - Splash of Color by Jackie Kunkel - AmysCreativeSide.com

The table runner and placemat set, called It’s a Celebration is so fun – I might have to make it for the triangle border alone!

Dreaming of Pyramids - Splash of Color by Jackie Kunkel - AmysCreativeSide.com

Dreaming of Pyramids is another great quilt, I love the balance the solid fabrics lend to the black and white prints. Jackie has expert advice for mixing prints, and colors so that you can have stunning success with any of the patterns you decide to make!

As you can see, the quilts in Splash of Color, are all about black and white prints with a touch of color added in. Some quilts have the whole rainbow, and others are focused on just a few. Many of the quilts are shown with a second option, solids, or alternate color ways are explored to further your inspiration.

    wow. I’m the first! Love the quilts I’ve seen from this book. I have a growing collection of B and W prints and I love bright colors. Looking forward to giving one of these a try. right now I’m in the process of sorting, flinging and organizing in my sewing area so I have room for a long arm….Not much sewing going on at all, but lots of dreaming…

    I have a project on my design wall that is made up of black and white triangles with a rainbow color wheel hexagon (made up of triangles). I love the mix of blank and whites with vibrant colors!

    The quilts in Jackie’s book are amazing, love her way of using bright colors together with black and white. I get inspired making my own version of one of these quilts.
    I have recently finished a charity quilt for the children’s ward at my local hospital: Modern Buzz Saw, a really scrappy version, and a Modern Geometrics table runner. Both have lots of colors, but not as bright as Jackie’s works.
    Feel free to check out my blog.

    I’m currently working on two quilts, using the Three Dudes Quilt that Rob Appell modified. One is pinks and purples, which is pretty, and the other is rainbow. I wish the colors flowed a bit more like a rainbow, but I do love the quilt. I have both tops done, just need to get them quilted and off to my nieces.

    Well, my current project is a wall quilt from an Advanced quiltmaking course, which includes a Mariner’s compass in the center, stem and leaf applique around it, and a French braid border and then a solid border. It is an exercise in the rainbor on the green to deep blue violet spectrum, usually mostly batiks, and most of them in the tie-dyed “washed” type. So it is a rainbow on the water. I’m at the quilting & appliquilting stage so may have it done in a couple of weeks!

    I’m working on two quilts- one for my father for Christmas and the other for my daughter ‘s wedding in July. Then I want to start on one for my bedroom. No rainbow colors for any of them but I have plenty of those colors in my stash along with black and white!

    I am working on an improv “smiley” face quilt that my granddaughter requested for her birthday next month. The background uses many shades of light to medium value blues, greens and purples and the smiley face is yellow, of course, with black thread painting for the facial features. I am having a lot of fun with it!. Looks like a fun book!

    I am doing my very first PAPER PIECING quilt, its in all primary colors and its going very well and going to be beautiful. I am enjoying this process as well. I am english paper piecing a few blocks that have hexis in them just because i wanted this wuilt to be a new learning experience all together. I am also using all solids, no prints at all, which is not normal for me. I think this will be my prettiest quilt yet though! Surprising myself :)

    I’m just getting ready to start Farm Girl Vintage which will be done with a huge pile of bright scraps. But I’m really tempted by these dynamic black & white plus color pieces I’m seeing. This book is right up my alley.

    I have may tops in the process. Part way through another spiders web for charity. Starting to do some quilt as you go on old spiderweb triangles so I can get one of them finished.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    I am not currently working on any significant quilting projects right now because my machine is out of commission but that doesn’t stop me from looking for inspiration!

    Wow, what great colourful projects!
    I’m currently working on a mini quilt using EPP. It’s not rainbow though, although I think it might look better if it was!

    What stunning projects in this book, thank you for sharing it. I’m currently working on book bags for my daughters’ kindergarten class, not a quilt, but I have several on my list :)
