Color Play for Quilters

with Joen Wolfrom
Color Play for Quilters
Learn how prize-winning quilters and top fabric designers create beautiful color combinations, movement, depth and luminosity through fabric.

A best-selling author and creator of The Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool, Joen will teach you how to make the most of your fabric choices to create the effects you're looking for. Whether you're a traditional quilter, modern quilter or cutting-edge art quilter, you'll improve your skills and sharpen your eye. You'll learn what color is and what it's made of before Joen shows you how to translate your color knowledge to the quilter's medium: fabric. Achieve depth and dimension with colors that advance and recede, add light effects with luminosity and luster with this fun, non-academic approach to color. Bonus: Joen's e-book "Color Play" (a $14.99 value) is included free!

"Joen's comprehensive course on color is THE best I've ever taken and makes so much more sense that any of the other so-called expertise that costs BIG bucks! Joen, your color wheel and how you teach the various aspects of color are incredible ... I see color differently, I see fabric differently...what a joy to finally understand where browns come from and why some work and others don't with a particular color scheme, for example ... I have begun designing quilts with my new understanding and it's a joyous venture!"
