Color Play by Joen Wolfram

61MFYMjT0wL   From Karen:  SO excited to share with you ! Nancy Sterett Martin and I appear on page 47 of Joen Wolfrom’s latest book – Color Play (second edition) …just released this month. I have learned so much from her color sense..and so much of what Joen teaches about shading and highlighting with colors of fabric can be translated in choosing the perfect dye color to use . Her 10429314_10202714360969207_6766215775597315603_nbook is written as though she is sitting across the table from you …encouraging you along your colorful journey. I am pinching myself that I am featured in Joen’s book, and painting designs for master quilter Nancy to embellish.

The book can be purchased from Amazon.
