Come here and start the video below. You can watch Alex live on Facebook or right here in this blog. Alex is back and ready to teach. She has talked about neutrals, fabric combinations, and today she talks about using solid fabrics. Plus there will be a quilt showing, and some hints about a sew-along on Saturday. FUN!
In today's environment, many of us have been asked to self-quarantine to defeat this vicious virus. We understand that as creatives, we all need to keep creating and Alex wants to help. Go to our Facebook page Wednesday at 10am Pacific Time (12 CST 1pm EST) 5pm London.
Today, Alex will talk about Successful Fabric Combinations. If you miss it, just click the Watch the Video button. Let's all come together, keep safe, and keep creating. It's a great time to binge watch past Quilt Shows you've missed. Alex will have some suggestions. It's all in fun and for learning and supporting each other.
We continue our selection of quilts exhibited in 2019 at the Houston International Quilt Festival as part of their 45th Anniversary, the Sapphire Anniversary. The Sapphire Celebration exhibit is described as:
"Quilters have long used the color blue to symbolize trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Sapphire is also the chosen gem to celebrate 45th anniversaries—which International Quilt Festival is doing this year (2019)! These new and antique blue and white quilts will be suspended from the ceiling in a spectacular and unforgettable display."
To be a part of the exhibit, quilts had to fit the following criteria:
