Color Play: Easy Steps to Imaginative Color in Quilts



Author: Joen Wolfrom

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