Show and tell…

I wanted to email you long before now. I truly enjoyed making this quilt with all my heart. I’ll admit I made some errors…. The biggest was jumping in without all my fabrics selected. Some struggle in that area but learned some much. 

Thank you for designing a wonderful very versatile composition. I have seen your pattern done in many color ways with much success. I can imagine that feels so good. 

Gail’s quilt was a winner in the Dallas Quilt Show where I was a judge. Her quilt is as pretty in person as it is here! Below is a photo of the quilt wearing it’s ribbon:

Gail embroidered around many of the lighter applique shapes which helped them to be more visible against the background. It is a nice touch!

Thank you, Gail, for sharing your quilt at the show and here! FYI: the pattern is Aunt MIllie’s Garden and you can find the epattern here.

Sign up for the Quilter’s Color Mixer, an online class you will love!

Join 12 expert quilting instructors (I’m not in this event but will be in one in the future) for a vibrant multi-class event on the most powerful (and intimidating) tool in the quilter’s toolkit: color. 

One of the most interesting things I’ve found is that no matter how much you know about color, you can always learn more. This is a great opportunity to hear what 12 experienced teachers have to offer on the subject.

Starting with a keynote with color master, designer, and author, Jean Wells, you’ll explore simple color vocabulary, actionable techniques, and begin to assess your own journey as an artist.

Then you’ll have access to join twelve 40-minute workshops to learn color theory, the history of color in art, creating custom color palettes, stash-busting piecing tips, explore ombré quilt designs, master designing with prints, and more. The instructors’ approaches to color simplifies all things color into mindful practices that you can apply right away.

The live event is Thursday, March 30th at 9 am (Pacific Time)

The recording with be available April 2nd with no expiration
