SPLASH OF COLOR by Jackie Kunkel

Hello all you wonderful blog hoppers. I am Pat Wys  designer and more importantly friend of Jackie Kunkel. I have known Jackie for several year as we met at market. Needless to say I jumped at the chance to participate in this blog hop and welcome Jackie and her new book. Jackie joins a very special family of authors at Martingale Co. Welcome Jackie your book is amazing!


As I have been looking and reading Jackie’s masterpiece book it occurred to me that this book really IS JACKIE!!!



HAPPY! Jackie always greets people with a joyful and infectious smile. So happy. Just like this table runner and place mat. What a happy table setting. Yup just like Jackie.  From-Splash-of-Color


I swear Jackie doesn’t sleep. She has the same amount of hours in her day as I do. She gets so much done and makes it look easy. This book has a huge amount of instruction and ways to make these projects doable. Directions are clear clear and well done. The mark of a teacher who is organized! Her writing made me want to paper piece. ALERT THE MEDIA! Jackie hooked me!



The premise of the book , black and white quilts enhanced with a splash of bright color is genius and is beautifully carried out through the whole book. Jackie takes us on a journey and teaches us how to use this concept to create amazing quilts.



Jackie is a teacher. You can tell as you read Splash of Color  that she wants us to learn and become better quilters. Jackie adds tons of tips and she uses “teachable moments” throughout the  book.  She also gives us alternate color ways for the projects.A BONUS!


DO NOT MISS a chance to add this book to your own library of books.
