The speaker for our Tuesday evening, Nov. 12, meeting will be Sherrie Jaqua from Sunshine Quilt Shop in Oscoda.
Color Confident Quilters
Picking fabric and colors is one of the things most quilters find intimidating. This lecture/trunk show will make use of actual quilt tops and the 3-in-1 Color Tool to guide your group through the Color Wheel. They will leave with a good understanding of how to combine color and why certain colors look so wonderful together. We will also discuss the importance of color in our lives, and how it affects our moods. Every quilter can gain color confidence with a little training and this lecture will give them a very good start.
The Fabric Made Me Do It
Take some of those “why did I ever buy that and what am I going to do with it” fabrics and bring them along to this workshop. Sherrie will guide you through selecting a pattern and making use of border prints, panels, large print fabric, and pillow squares to make a simply stunning quilt. Who doesn’t have fabric in their stash they simply don’t know what to do with and what better way to find out than in this entertaining learning experience. All levels of quilters are welcome.
We have openings for this workshop. The cost will be $35. It is an all day workshop (9 am-4 pm) held at Our Redeemer Church, 889 Poseyville Rd, Midland, MI. Contact Cassie Cuthbert (989-631-3306) to reserve your spot soon and to get the supply list.
