Blair Stocker, Zoom Lecture: "Find the Value in Your Stash"

The value lecture really lays out the concept of using color value to create scrappy quilts and shows how far it can really go. The workshop will give quilters who are more beginners a fun approachable technique to try, and it will give more seasoned quilters a way to get reinspired by their own stash.


Zoom Workshop on March 13: "Find the Value in Your Stash"

Blair will take you through a practical explanation of color value relationships between fabrics in your stash, how to understand it, and more importantly how to use it in your quilts. She'll show you how to use the Ruby Ruler to make Half Square Triangles so you can make all the wonderful variations of quilts with triangles.
