"Overcoming Fabric Paralysis: How to Color Your Quilts"
Are you one of the many quilters absolutely paralyzed with uncertainty when it comes to picking fabrics for quilts? Do you stick to kits so you don’t have to make choices or plan your own fabrics? In this jam-packed lecture, Donna will take the mystery out of picking fabrics for your next project. She will review how to choose fabrics for quilts based on three main concepts: hue, value, and variety of scale of print. Each concept will be covered in great detail. She will also present simple strategies, approaches, and recipes for getting you started on your own unique masterpieces. Trunk show.
