Description

Modern Colour workshop

This workshop covers the basics of colour theory and explores how it relates to choosing fabrics for your quilts. You will learn about colour relationships and why they matter, how to curate a colour palette using an inspiration source, find a way to use that ‘ugly’ fabric and make your own colour wheel quilt.

Just as a painter creates art with paint, a quilter creates art with fabric.

If you ask me, one of the most enjoyable parts of making a quilt is playing with the fabric. I love creating colour combinations with the fabrics from my stash. There are often little piles of fabric around the house, waiting to become a quilt. They don’t always grow up to become something more, but the potential is there.

Sometimes my quilts start with the fabrics and other times, a quilt pattern needs a fabric palette.

While I don’t want to dictate what colours you should love and want to use, I would love to challenge you to step outside your comfort zone, add more variety to your quilts and become more confident creating your future projects.

Morning and afternoon tea, coffee and water provided, BYO lunch.

About Crystal from Raspberry Spool

As a proud modern quilter and woman, my mission is to inspire creativity through sewing. I was believe I was fortunate to grow up with sewing watching the women in my family sew and naturally, I went straight into fashion design after high school. I got hooked on quilting when I made my first quilt for a friends baby 10+ years ago and it’s safe to say that I’ve never looked back.

A couple of years back I started a blog, which led to designing my first quilt and still most popular pattern, the Modern Medallion, which has led to teaching and all kinds of awesome quilty stuff. I contribute to several publications as well as self-publishing my own patterns. My quilts are hung at local, national and international shows. You can now find me teaching across Australia, sharing my modern techniques in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

You can visit me anytime at www.raspberryspool.com to read more about what I am getting up to each week. And, when I’m not quilting, blogging or teaching, you can find me running around after my two children, most likely laughing, probably dancing and definitely enjoying life.

Scraps are perfect for this quilt!

- An ‘ugly’ fabric – We all have that one fabric that we love, but have never been able to include in a quilt. Bring it along and we can make a colour palette for it that you can use at home.
- 1 yard of a light or ‘low volume’ fabric to become the background of the colour wheel.
- Optional – an inspiration source to make a colour palette. This could be a magazine picture, a favourite fabric, a photo, artwork – anything where the colour speaks to you.
