I'm training this three-day workshop, OCTAGON SHIMMER at Cotton Patch in Lafayette, California the week-end of Friday February 5-7 where we're going to discover this design and how to decide on shade effectively. The Cotton Patch just got the brand new textile in filled with bolts and precuts! I will be in addition offering a presentation a few weeks, the night of Thursday, January 28th called, PRINT MEETS WOVEN: A LOVE TALE to fairly share the particulars of blending images and yarn dyes/wovens with lots of examples available. I would personally love to see you if you're at all regional.Above could be the hot shade story to the left and cool tale to the right. They're great by themselves but mixed collectively develop a really festive palette! I used the complete collection for Octagon Shimmer Quilt above making use of just FQ towers. I cannot worry sufficient the necessity of most of the "colors" you did not observe at first. Look once more and just study the quiet ones. Fool around with the display screen by supporting your hand/fingers to pay for the brights and see exactly how different it seems without all of them. Then look again at the top quilt to discover essential the non bright tend to be. Additional go through the landscape into the background void of all color except sky blue. Yet the drama of white to black colored is stunning. See just what I Am Talking About?
Showing slightly detail of prints. Peeking on the left is my "Matisse" doodle, HST print, true grass-green yarn-dye, ticking time printing, etc.All are centered on small wonderings that i've. I positively love the yarn dyes. They are the best value available. Therefore good to utilize and wash beautifully without losing any shape.
Detail of most the yarn dyes into the team. They standalone too! But i prefer them best combined with the prints.
Studio mess is obviously essential when creating. Fun, dynamic, scary in some instances, exhilarating and very, extremely rewarding!
Combining my love of color, fabric, quilts and nature. And a few behind-the-scenes shots the following. Yep, that's my supportive husband plus one of my sons at the top of Sugar Bowl Mountain recently. Blue-bird time, no?Teaching is something i must say i enjoy and now have additional time for the present time the children are becoming bigger. I really enjoy working with various other inspired makers taking enough time generate one thing stunning on their own or as something special. Inform me if you would like us to arrive at your neighborhood or guild/shop. I would enjoy that.
