Color Sense for Quilting

About Color Sense for Quilting

Learn expert techniques for choosing the right fabrics and the key to color, which is necessary for successful quilts. Start with a no-sew day of discussing color trends, fabric manufacturing, and playing with fabric – making paste-ups and a resource binder. Enjoy the challenge of using one block pattern to create an eye-popping quilt top. Each of your blocks will be unique! Your future quilts will benefit from your new perspective on fabric choice.

This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School & is limited to 24 students. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online. Registration for this class ends on March 3rd, 2021.
