TITLE: Mary Fons Presents Color Me Quilter: Black
Bonus Lesson: How Much Fabric Do I Need? (Calculating Yardage)
When: October 28, 2014
Time: 8-9pm ET (1 hour)
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 live, online 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.
