Color Discoveries

Over at my Quilts and Creativity blog I just posted photos of the adorable quilt shop I taught at last Saturday:  The Stitching Barn in Eatonton, GA, near Lake Oconee.  It has great retreat potential, so you won’t want to miss it.  Here are some photos from the workshops I taught:

Here we’re doing an exercise with value, and I suggest that my students share fabrics and use the color they have in abundance.  Each of the three separate tables had the most fabric in what color?

Green.

Me too. What about you?  Greens are in abundant supply in most shops and in nature.  When I organized my fabric stash by color, I was really surprised by what colors I had in plenty and what I was missing.  My shelves were full of red and green, but I didn’t have much in the way of blue, and I love blue!

And here’s my class photo from my Color Mastery workshop the last weekend in May at my hone shop, Sew Memorable:

Maude, Sharon, Barbara, and Dixie are showing off their fat quarter bundles they coordinated themselves from an exercise we do in the class.  It’s an enormous leap for quilters to go from a printed color wheel to actually putting together their own color palettes in fabric, and these ladies did a tremendous job!
