Special Effects with Color

Teacher: Christine Barnes

Christine Barnes demystifies color in your quilts.

Join author and designer Christine Barnes (The Quilter’s Color Club) as she demystifies color and shows you how to choose and combine fabrics—“magic fabrics”—to create special effects like luminosity, transparency, luster, and opalescence. Get acquainted with the basics (they are the building blocks of color) and put the concepts into practice with ten easy color studies. See how “the color makes the quilt” in a number of same-design, different-colorway examples. When it comes to color, there are rules and they work!
