Review   Applique Society Newsletter - January 1, 2012
"Sometimes when I have a quilt on the design wall I spend days arranging and re-arranging the elements of the quilt until I find a pleasing design. While I enjoy this process, I am still not confident that what might be pleasing to me might not be so appealing to some- one else. I am getting better as I begin to study and learn more about design. Joen Wolfrom’s new “Magic Design-Ratio Tool” can instantly improve your design skills and go a long way toward eliminating that self-doubt. The Magic Design-Ratio Tool is based on seven fundamental design ratios and gives you the measurements you need to determine your artwork’s ideal dimensions. The tool itself consists of 5 panels printed front and back on heavy card stock which unfold accordion style. The first panel explains how to use the tool in just six easy steps and provides definitions of the terminology used with the tool. What is a design ratio? That is simply explained with beautiful photographs used to illustrate both vertical and horizontal options. Next step is determining your design’s best format. Once again, simple instructions illustrated by beautiful quilts. As your design evolves you will need to choose your format and then determine which design ratio works best. These two panels explain the ratios and which ratio works with a particular format and why. The last panel consists of a slide chart. Once you have deter- mined what design ratio you want to use you will pull the slide chart insert up until the short or long side measurements you desire shows in the window. The corresponding number in the window will be the measurement of your artwork’s second side. You will want to keep this handy tool on your worktable or carry along in your project bag.
