While in Color Play: Easy Steps to Imaginative Color in Quilts, Wolfrom encouraged quilters to learn elements of color theory, here she speaks to quilters who wish to go straight to choosing colors without any knowledge of color theory. Prospective quilt designers, she instructs, should create a clipping file of color photographs (e.g., of nature, decorative pottery, jewelry) from which they should select only those photos with visually pleasing or emotionally evocative colors; then the photos should be enlarged in order to bring out colors that might not otherwise be noticeable. This will inspire them in picking colors and textures with which to design an original quilt. Although the idea is not revolutionary, quilters will learn much from Wolfrom's gallery of quilts and can practice this technique by duplicating any of her five projects. For most quilting collections.
