Adventures in Design

Adventures in Design is Joen Wolfrom's lastest, greatest quilt design book. I have several of Joen's informative, colorful quilt design books. And now I'm pleased to say that several of my own quilts are featured in Adventures in Design. Joen does a masterful job of combining the visual and verbal to instruct and inspire us to grow in our design concepts.

Joen has a delightful "Playing With Color" blog. I guarantee you will learn a lot and be mesmerized by her luscious photography.

For a review of the book (and a shameless plug for my featured quilt "A Matter of Perspective") click on this link: seehowwesew

Here are some quick shots of the pages in Adventures in Design that include my quilts:

Yellow Stuff

Gorgeous. But who says color in the garden must be limited to blooms?

OK, this is a bit extreme . . .

Yellow Stuff

Every year the Concours d'Elegance comes to Third Street in Geneva, IL. This year Lincoln and Brass Era Fords were featured, although numerous other makes and models are included. My husband and I are partial to Packards (next year's feature).

Quilt color schemes can come from anywhere. How about yellow, blue and red?

Great lines on this car:
