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!

If you think you have a problem with color, Color Sense is for you. If you think you have a problem with choosing fabrics for your quilts, Color Sense is for you.

This is one of the best courses to improve your eye for color when it comes to quilting. Learn what makes good design when applying your color choices to your projects.

The pattern includes:

• practical information on choosing colors and fabrics

• 7 pasteup pages so you can play with your fabric and create a wonderful resource book for yourself

• complete instructions on how to make the quilt using one block and ten fat quarters — a sensational quilt where the patterns of the blocks change and can’t be duplicated.
