Watching the sunrise this morning and watching the sky turn from mauve to a beautiful shade of deep blue to a lighter shade as the sun gets higher in the sky. Watching the pines turn a deeper shade of green and the goldfinches recover their yellow color. Looking outside and seeing strong color contrasts with the remaining snow and ribbons of blacktop showing up. Looking across a lake and seeing blended color with melting snow and ice leading up to a white house on the opposite shore. No wonder I love quilting – it is a way of capturing some of this beauty that changes with the time of the day and time of the season. Color is fascinating.
Let’s look at “Cabin Fever” by Judy Niemeyer as an example of how color choices add to a creation:
The class to teach you how to create this gorgeous quilt will be taught by Connie Chapman. It is a 2 part class starting Saturday, March 15 from 10 AM – 12 PM and Saturday, March 22 from 10 AM – 4 PM. In the 1st class, Connie will help you pick the perfect fabrics for this pattern. In the 2nd, longer class, she will teach you Judy Niemeyer’s piecing techniques. This is a phenomenal bargain at $35 plus the pattern. Connie is a very experienced, professional quilter. You will not only learn (probably more than you expect), but you will enjoy her company as well. Call (763-633-4669) or come in and reserve your place in class.
Enjoying the Transition to Warmer Weather,
