The Magical Effects of Color
Joen's second book takes up where the popular Landscapes & Illusions left off, further exploring luminosity, highlights, reflections, and transparency in both traditional and contemporary quilts. She discusses the color wheel, explains various visual effects, and encourages observations of nature. Finally information on pattern drafting and perspective helps quilters create their own designs. Twenty-four pages are devoted to some of the leading quiltmakers of our time.
