Learn exactly what draws the eye to interesting designs and patterns in quilts to give them life. We discuss keys to effective fabric selection in this workshop, apply hands-on design exercises, and make a quilt applying everything you learn. The first day is Building Your Color Sense, a no-sew, hands-on workshop with a slide show about quilts and color standards, a hands-on demo where we play with fabric, and students build paste-ups from their stash. Learn to apply design rules to choose fabrics for quilts, enhancing your own color and fabric intuition. Students create a resource binder that they will use again and again. The second day, you compose an eye-popping quilt, The 1:10 Quilt, using a single block pattern and ten fat-quarters! The block used for this exercise is a magical block that changes design based on where you place your fabrics. Each block is totally unique and canʼt be repeated!
