Book Reviews: 

I love this book! Color Play by Joen Wolfrom instantly rocketed to my top-five favorite quilting books of all time. Joen has taken all the hocus-pocus out of color selection and replaced it with a set of clear steps to follow. And she accompanies her explanations with wonderfully illustrative photographs. If you want to learn more about color, this is the way to learn. If you have trouble picking colors, this book gives you a step-by-step process that takes the stress out of color selection. If you want to expand your color usage by trying something different but don’t want to spend lots of time working on something you won’t like when it’s finished, start here. Joen Wolfrom’s Color Play is by far the best color teaching and color reference book for quilters on the market today.

Review: The Quilting Quarterly/NQA
This incredible book is easy to understand and provides quilters with innovative and effortless ways to add knowledge to create their own colorful, charismatic quilts. A marvelous addition to every quilter’s library.

Review By: Catherine Smith,
“Who could have imagined that an enthusiastic, well informed and well written chapter could be done on each of the major colors? There is a world of information here on color in design including all of its characteristics with charts and illustrations, plus new and gorgeous quilt photos. The photos and graphics in this book are superb. The typeface, layout, continuity and cohesion are all excellent. The amount of thought and knowledge that have gone into this volume is obvious. This is not a quick and easy and fun book. It is a valuable reference that should be in every quilter’s library. When we are barraged by too much choice in fabric, this book is a great help. And it can also be useful as verification of individual choices made on fabrics and combinations of colors. This is a go to every day book and a basic necessity for quilters.”

Review: International Quilting Times
I love color, and from the moment I opened Joen Wolfrom’s book I knew I was in for a treat. A book which will be referred to again and again, it deserves to be a best seller.
