Color your Quilts II

Let’s continue the journey of expanding our ‘color vocabulary’ and color theory insights into quilt projects. We will work on expanding our ability to manipulate our color choices to achieve particular effects in our work.

We will look at how to use color to reflect and enhance our quilt designs.In this class we will work with manipulating value shifts, as well as transparency. If time permits we will work on a color proportion mini project. Students should be familiar with their sewing machines and basic piecing and quilting techniques. This is a hands-on class.

It is helpful for students to have participated in COLOR YOUR QUILTS 1 class, but not required.

COLOR YOUR QUILTS 1 will be offered again in January 2020.
