MaryJo Busch will teach us to use a color wheel to create combinations of fabrics to create a variety of color schemes. Every student WILL go home with all the color combinations created and sealed in zip top bags and at least one block stitched out to use as a reference.
Download the supply list.
Registration opens to non-members on September 20, 2018.
During the workshop, students will cut squares and design a nine block quilt with each block representing a color combination from their wheel. (As discussed during the lecture) Each square is packed into a small sandwich bag as a kit to be sewn together later. Sewing the first block is helpful to students, but not required. (The quilt does include half-square triangles, so students who are not familiar with the technique may wish to bring a machine and I will show them how to stitch the first block.)
I will provide a printed handout for students so they don't have to work so hard taking notes. I will have large and small color wheels available for purchase. Workshop students will receive a small wheel with their class kit, which also includes a supply list (given to each student in advance of the workshop) an instruction sheet for finishing their quilt, a 'coloring book' sheet to use in designing their blocks and small snack bags for creating their take home kits.
