Show 103 - Visualizing Color!

Featuring: Joen Wolfrom

Posts On: April 23, 2007

Joen Wolfrom of JWD Publishing, color expert, author, quilter, and photographer shares her love of photography and how to use photo imagery for color inspiration in quilts. All quilters will find this unique approach to color selection valuable when it is time to select colors (and fabrics) for their quilts - regardless of the style of quilt. This show includes a piece (captured at Quilt Festival in Houston) featuring Ami Simms, who explains how she is using quilts to raise funds for Alzheimer's research. Also included is Gregory Case, The Quilt Show's Photo Man, giving tips on quilt photography.
