Review Quilters home - March 1, 2011
we might have been raised to believe that red, blue and yellow are the Holy Trinity of color mixing. But today's graphic artists, photographers , dyers and yes, quilters, use cyan, magenta and yellow as primaries. Which leads us to author, quilter and color godess Joen Wolfrom. She's written about color in quilts for decades and learned long ago that the pre hues of the Ives Color Wheeel created much better looking color combos than our grade school lessons offered. Joen just birthed her third incarnation of the best selling 3-in-1 Color Tool and added a nifty poster to go with it. The new version still has those wonderful color family cards with color schemes, but it also has the CMYK ( cyan, magenta yellow and black) and the RGB (red , green , blue) color formulas used in design and dye work, along with Hex numbers used in website design. This hand-dandy carry-aoong tool is priceless for choosing fabrics on the fly. Learning it's tricks will make your quilts thro with energy. And while your sitting in your studio/sweing room, drink in inspiration rom her Studio Color Wheel, a 28 inch- square poster with color combonations at the ready.
