May Meeting and Workshop will be Linda and Carl Sullivan from Colourwerx. The lecture will be “Got Color”. Boost your color confidence and learn to use every color of the rainbow in your quilts. Linda and Carl will discuss the basics of color theory, demonstrate color concepts and how to create and combine dynamic color palettes, as well as share their tips and tricks on how to find color inspiration in everyday objects to inspire, infuse and ignite the color in your next quilting project. The workshop is Mod Applique. You will love how liberating and fancy free these improvs, slash ‘n sew projects are! With no exact 1/4” seams to follow, and tons of tips and tricks. You will learn the basics of fun improv/wonky piecing and never worry about being exact again! She’ll also teach the beginning basics of fusible web machine appliqué.
