(Handout fee $24, includes handouts, rotary templates. This will be collected by the teacher by the end of class)
Choose 3-4 color families, such as blue, pink, green, purple or yellow. Any colors will work, so don’t worry about “matching” the color families to each other.
Bring 2-8 lights, 2-8 medium and 2-8 darks in each family. Make sure your fabrics are not busy prints. A fat quarter of each fabric is enough. You may bring more fabric (and more color families) if you wish. Fabric will be available for purchase in class.
You can also use Karen Combs' gradated fabric, available on her webpage. Click here for Karen's online catalog. If you use Karen's fabrics, select 2 or 3 colors you enjoy working with.
What is a busy print? Any high contrast print such as white over a dark color, a small calico print or a "loud" print. The fabric "Fossil Fern" is a good example of a non-busy print. CLICK HERE TO SEE FABRIC SUGGESTIONS
