Engineer’s Guide

Charles Cameron Lecture
Charles Cameron Lecture – Guest Ticket

“As an engineer, I approach color selection and placement in my quilts in a very methodical way.

In this talk we’ll discuss several strategies for selecting fabric colors and their placement when planning your quilt to add interest and depth.  I promise there aren’t any quizzes or mathematical equations!

I’ll share 7 quilts that I’ve made, both from purchased patterns and my own design and the approach for selecting colors to achieve optimum results.

This lecture is intended for both beginner and advanced quilters who are interested in becoming more adventurous with color or who struggle with selecting colors for quilt patterns or within their own work.”

$50/member + $1.50 Paypal Fee

Using the traditional quilt block or other set of compositional lines (bridge, building, etc…) as your starting point we will enlarge and magnify the lines of the structure and use them as our skeleton for building a pieced composition. From there we will explore a variety of ways to create texture, pattern, and repetition in that space.
