Colour My Quilt World..wonderful

Posted in Techniques and Materials tagged , , at 3:30 am by satinmoon

Once a month I put my teacher hat back on and craft a colour  lesson for a select group of quilters. Armed with our textbook and tools

We gather around the cutting table.

Where we explore a new concept first with words and tools

And then go in search of whole bolts to solve the colour question.

I love having the shop as a quilter’s playground.

After assembling our samples, we share, discuss and sometimes adjust.

A sample swatch is cut for each person to arrange and affix in their journal.

The goal is to go home with new tools to help organize, design and fill in gaps in the fabric colour palette of our individual stashes.

Learning from the students’ searches and solutions gives me wonderful feedback for the Satin Moon collection. Almost as much fun as playing at Satin Moon is  MODA FABRIC MATCHER a  wonderful interactive colour  site.

Even more fun are these links. I need to go play!
