3-in-1 Color ToolJune 14, 2007
Have you ever had trouble remembering the color of a fabric at home as you stand in the fabric store trying to choose fabrics for your next project? This is a neat little color tool that helps at moments like that. It was put together by Joen Wolfrom and is published by C&T Publishing.
The major part of the tool is the color cards; 24 cards showing the tints, shades and tones of 24 colors around the color wheel.
On the back of each card are illustrations of possible color plans utilizing that color; monochromatic, complementary, analogous, split-complementary, and triadic. Now, it is a pretty simple thing to figure out these color plans, but it is really nice to have them all laid out at a glance.
The tool also includes two value finders; green and red acetate that eliminates color and shows what the true values of your colors are. This comes in handy for determining the value contrast between fabrics.
This is all assemble into a neat little packet that is easy to carry with you when you go fabric shopping. Happy quilting!
