Color Me Quilter: Red
Learn to effectively use red in your quilting! Perhaps no color evokes more intense emotion than red -- this is a color that packs a punch and makes us feel stuff. In this web seminar, we’ll look at how quilters through the ages have used red and how you can use it effectively, too. You'll learn how red fabric is made and why it bleeds, red’s position on the color wheel and what that means for your patchwork, what colors may be less successful when paired with red, and why. Your Bonus Lesson: Tips for cleaning your machine!
Color Me Quilter: Pink
How do we love pink? In so many wonderful ways. In this on-demand web seminar, we’ll look at what pink communicates in our culture: fun, exclusivity, and, of course, femininity. In this session, you'll learn how to expand your use of pink beyond baby quilts, how quilts, like the great Civil War-era “double-pink” quilts, use pink brilliantly, about pink’s position on the color wheel, and how tint, shade and pink’s relationship to red will help you use pink in your patchwork. Your Bonus Lesson: How to use scale in fabric.
Color Me Quilter: Blue
It’s been said that ‘blue is America’s favorite color.’ Maybe 29% of the population consistently prefers blue above all other colors because there are so many incredible shades of blue to choose from: periwinkle, sky, navy, and on and on. You'll learn how to expand your use of blue beyond baby quilts, how quilts, like the great Civil War-era quilts, use blue brilliantly, blue's position on the color wheel, and how tint and shade will help you use blue in your patchwork. Your Bonus Lesson: How to use scale in fabric. If you've ever been sad that your favorite fabric looks terrible when you cut it up, you've had a scale problem. Mary helps you understand scale a bit better so that doesn't happen again.
Color me Quilter: Yellow
Buttercream. Sunshine. Lemon. The world of yellow is vast and varied. Using yellow in our quilts can be so much fun - but it's not always an easy color to wrangle. In this on demand web seminar with Mary Fons, learn how to discern yellow's values, how to watch out for "muddy" prints, and "find your yellow." Plus, Mary offers some info on substrates; a lot of fabric manufacturers make them. Do they go in your quilt, though?
You Bonus Lesson: What Are Substrates -- And Can They Go In My Quilt?
Color Me Quilter: Black
Could the most fascinating color of all be… a non-color? Black fabric has been used by humans in wildly different garments: religious garments, mourning clothes, the "little black dress." But how does black work in our quilts? The Amish used black liberally in their quilts as a foil to their brilliant jewel-tones. Many modern quilters love the simplicity of black. In this on-demand web seminar with Mary Fons, learn about different "shades" of black, printed black fabrics vs. solids, and discover why black might be your new quilt BFF. Plus, get a crash course in determining yardage, all on this entertaining "episode" of Color Me Quilter. Your Bonus Lesson: How Much Fabric Do I Need? (Calculating Yardage)

For the lovers, Color Me Quilter: Purple is a celebration of a deep, luscious favorite; for the anti-purple, Mary offers a new way to approach it.
