Color Play by Joen Wolfrom

An exploration of selecting and using color in quiltmaking. The chapters discuss 14 colors, their characteristics, and the combinations that make them look good in a quilt design. Sample fabric arrangements are provided to make color concepts easy to understand. Joen Wolfrom explores color scales - the variations of pure color, tints, shades, and tones - and how they affect the mood of a quilt. She discusses the illusions you can create using colors, such as highlights, shadows, depth, transparency, and more. There is also a gallery of over 70 quilts illustrating her techniques for choosing colors.
