Joen Wolfrom is well known for her knowledge and use of color. I read her blogs on color regularly [...]. In Joen's new book 'Adventures in Design', she shares her knowledge of color, along with tons of other designing principles. In addition, Adventures in Design is like an encyclopedia of traditional and lots of art quilts. The book itself is colorful, with gorgeous colors on every page. Exercises are given after each educational chapter, and even the exercise pages are bright and colorful.
Adventures in Design covers many lessons for quilt designers: color, symmetry, balance, line and shape, distance, and so much more! I read this book in the evening, and it really woke me up, just looking at it. If you are interested in quilting, traditional or art, this is the book you need. I can't think of anything else that you would need to learn to design your own quilt!
