FEBRUARY WORKSHOP

 Judy Campbell- The Value of Colour

Value refers to the amount of lightness or darkness in a colour. While selection of colour is a very important element in the successful design of a quilt, understanding how to manipulate variations in the value of these colours can make the difference between an “OK” quilt and one that bring a “WOW” response.

Class participants will each work at their own pace to produce a series of samples as each discovers a range of effects while manipulating changes in value.  This can enhance not only the main body of the quilt but can make an enormous difference to backgrounds, borders and even bindings.

These samples will become a valuable reference for future successful projects, rather than yet another UFO for those bottom drawers.

Date: Sunday 17 February

Venue: Alexander Park Craft House, Clyde Road Menora

Time: 9.30am – 4:30pm

Cost: $55 Members – $85 Non Members

Using a pattern designed by Ruth deVos, you will work through Ruth process for piecing a pictorial design to form a small (50 by 50cm) botanical quilt. Starting with a full size pattern, you will use iron on interfacing to translate the pattern pieces to fabric, and then will learn how to stitch all the pieces together. You will love watching your design take shape and by the end of the workshop be well on your way to completing this quilt top.
