Color your Quilts

Do you want to learn more about the role of color in making visually successful quilts? Do you look at beautiful quilts and wonder how the maker decided on the color palette? The primary goal of this class is to provide students with some concrete tools for making color choices, and to apply this knowledge to quilt making. Students should be familiar with their sewing machine, and the basics of quilt construction.

Students will do a number of hands-on color related projects with fabric, and then apply what they have learned to quilt making.The class is rooted in Color Theory and Design Principles. Interactive discussions and fun critiques will be part of every class. Construction techniques will also be taught when necessary.

Come and enjoy the wonderful world of color in quilts. This is all about COLOR, FABRIC AND FUN.
