"Fabric Painting: How to Make Color Work for You"
July 12, 2022
Lecture Description: Allie is a quilter who loves working with scraps of fabrics that may not typically be thought to work together. As someone that saves every scrap, she has learned how to look at fabric as color, as a painter looks at paint.
It can be difficult to figure out how to use scraps efficiently, especially if they don’t seem to “work” together. In this lecture, Allie guides you through her process of organization and usage of scraps so that you may learn to look at fabric in a new way.
