If you are planning a trip and are interested in taking a class or lecture from me, here’s what I will be teaching:
This lecture will cover color theory from the perspective of making rainbow quilts. Rebecca will show quilts from her book Modern Rainbow to reveal her favorite tools and techniques for coloring her quilts.
Inspired by the flame of a candle, pieced diamonds are the main focus of this quilt. Gain color confidence while you play with variances in value, which lend an element of unpredictability to the predictable rainbow while also adding depth and dimension. Low value diamond blocks paint the background, adding further visual interest. You can also choose to make this quilt in a “non-scrappy” version by using the same three fabrics – or colors – in each diamond.
Design your own version of the Wavelength quilt from Rebecca’s book Modern Rainbow: 14 Imaginative Quilts that Play with Color. This improvisationally crafted quilt invites students to play with the interchange of color as shapes gradually emerge. Rebecca will talk about making angled cuts, fabric choice, color selection, block fundamentals, and how different choices will create different effects in the quilt top.
I hope to see some of you there!
