The Art & Science of Choosing Fabrics – Class 1
July 19, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$85
Instructor: Heidi Edwards Dunn
Make your quilts pop, blend, highlight, soothe and excite. Learn how to choose fabrics that do more than “go together”. At the end of the class, you will be prepared to walk into a quilt store and zero in on fabrics that work for your current project, find the perfect accent color in your stash, and look to quilts, photographs, and fabrics for inspiration for your own quilts.
We start by helping you think about color and the relationship of colors. Consider a few “scientific” principles, and choosing colors becomes less overwhelming. Next, we add in the fun part – the emotional and inspirational aspects of choosing fabrics that work together to make your quilts reflect you. Of course, then we give you a chance to put it all together, with input from the class, if you wish it. You can start with an inspiration fabric, quilt, photo, or color, and build your quilt’s palette of fabrics from your stash and Quilted Threads.
The Art & Science of Choosing Fabrics is a no-sew class, however, interactive samples will reinforce class concepts. This class is appropriate for both beginner quilters and not-so-beginner quilters. Get more comfortable choosing your own quilt fabrics. It’s fun!
Heidi Edwards Dunn has lived in Henniker with her family for 17 years. She has been quilting for longer than that, and learned to sew oh, so many more years before that from her mom. Heidi is a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen, and her work has hung in exhibits in the region. She now mostly makes framed wall art quilts. Heidi loves walking into Quilted Threads and dreaming of all the fabric combinations possible for all the quilts she doesn’t have time to make.
This is a 2-class series: July 19 (10-3), July 20 (1-3)
