A simple color scheme can give a quilt pattern a totally different look, and they're easy to adapt to almost any style. This is what makes the patterns in Red, White, and Sometimes Blue Classics from McCall's Quilting a real treat for quilters. Find everything from star quilt patterns to patriotic quilt patterns that have the best brought out in their patterns because of a combination of classic color schemes that you can vary yourself. It's amazing to see how something as simple as the colors you choose can make your quilt patterns look even better than before.

This book comes with no fancy bells or whistles; it gets right to the point. The quick introduction begins to discuss all of the unique benefits that come from combining these recognizable colors schemes for numerous types of quilts. I know when I first saw this book, I immediately expected patriotic themes, but McCall's goes beyond the standard and divides the rest of the book up into three sections to intrigue your curiosity in multiple pursuits.

First comes "Red and White Quilts", which combines rich reds and bright, clean whites to create charming quilts with a lush contrast. There are holiday themed designs, but each of the patterns lends itself to year-round quilting. You'll also find that every pattern comes with a small introduction that explains the quilter's inspiration, which can help you find a new way to express yourself through your colors. If you're looking to feel refreshed, turn to the section for "Blue and White Quilts", which uses beautiful star quilt patterns and contemporary designs with a pop of color to add a noticable energy to any room. Lastly, there's "Red, White, and Blue Quilts", which will give you a whole new perspective on patriotic quilt patterns.
