Nothing like waiting for the eleventh hour to announce something but I still haven’t gotten a good handle on this Social Media stuff. Let’s blame it on tax time – yeah – that’s as good an excuse as any.
Tomorrow I will be at the Milwaukie Airing of the Quilts and will be giving a demo/presentation in the library from 1pm – 2:30 pm. The presentation is on Color Theory and if you have ever felt intimidated by working with color or made a quilt out of colors you love but then did not like the finished quilt, this is the lecture for you.
Learn what ‘value’ means and why it is perhaps the most critical factor in your quilt and how to troubleshoot your color choices BEFORE you sew them into your quilt – let’s face it – nobody LIKES to use a seam ripper. Learn the importance of color proportion and distribution and how you can control color to make your quilts spectacular.
Included will be a variety of of ways to create color palettes beyond just working with formulas from a color wheel.
The presentation will include a trunk show of my quilts where some of these methods were used.
I hope to see some of you there.
