Ruth Ann Berry’s new book, Stunning 3-D Quilts Simplified, has all the information you need to create a beautiful 3-D quilt illusion. Ruth’s expertise in Bargello quilts (see her other C&T books) lends perfectly to her new love—using color, value, and geometric shapes to create 3-D quilt designs.

Easy, follow-the-chart construction lets you focus all of your creative energy on the best mix of colors and values. For success, follow Ruth’s advice to choose fabrics in 3 values—light, medium, and dark—for every element. Most projects can be made in several different sizes, depending on the size of strips you cut for your triangles.
