Practical Color for Quilters

Offered as either a 3- or 6-Hour Class

You love color, but have trouble deciding which colors to use in your quilt. If that sounds familiar, then this is the class for you. 

This is a fun, no-sew day filled with surprises and lots of discussion. You will play with color and value as you glue fabric to paper to make pieced blocks. Everyone puts their blocks together and we all get to see what works, what doesn't, and mostly importantly, how to make color work for you. 

This class is suitable for all skill levels.
