Annieʼs most popular Workshop!
Every quilter thinks that they have a problem with color – when in fact, they need to know more about fabric. Learn exactly what draws the eye to interesting designs and patterns in quilts to give them life. We discuss keys to effective fabric selection in this workshop, apply hands-on design exercises, and make a quilt applying everything you learn.
The first day is Building Your Color Sense, a no-sew, hands-on workshop with a slide show about quilts and color standards, a hands-on demo where we play with fabric, and students build paste-ups from their stash. Learn to apply design rules to choose fabrics for quilts, enhancing your own color and fabric intuition. Students create a resource binder that they will use again and again.
The second day, you compose an eye-popping quilt, The 1:10 Quilt, using a single block pattern and ten fat-quarters! The block used for this exercise is a magical block that changes design based on where you place your fabrics. Each block is totally unique and canʼt be repeated!
As a part of the quilt making experience, you also learn precision piecing, using one little essential notion.
Understanding the points taught in this workshop will make all the difference in your future quilts.
