Mary Fons Presents Color Me Quilter: BLUE
Sub Title: Bonus Lesson: How To Submit A Quilt To a Magazine
When: August 21, 2014
Time: 8-9pm ET (1 hour)
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.
In each, one-hour live web seminar, as part of the Color Me Quilter series with Mary Fons, you'll get a hands-on lesson on a specific color, the opportunity to ask Mary questions and you'll even get bonus lessons in quiltmaking
What 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, shade and blue’s relationship to red will help you use blue in your patchwork
- Bonus: How to use scale in fabric. ÿIf 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.
Who should attend?
- Beginners and experienced quilters
- Quilt class teachers
