Have you ever asked:
What is wrong with my quilt?
Why didn’t my quilt turn out like I expected?
What is it about that other quilt that I like so much?
Why do some quilts look great and others fall flat?
Chances are that the answers to these questions have something to do with the quilt’s color, value and/or pattern scale. During this presentation, we will gain an understanding of these three crucial aspects of quilting and we will learn how to use this understanding to our advantage! We will examine both good and bad examples of color, value and pattern scale. We will practice what we have learned with a fun collage exercise and we will kick off our Paint Chip Mini Quilt Challenge!
Please bring the following items to the meeting that will be needed for the practice exercise:
- Fabric scraps (solids and different scales of prints)
- Colored paper scraps
- Old magazines
- School glue and/or clear tape, double sided if you have it
Dates to remember:
- Salvation Army's Annual Fabric Fair is April 9th, 2016
- North Pittsburgh Quilters Guild Show is April 15-17, 2016
