Saturday, July 27, 2019 - TransparencyWorkshop by Christine Ravish
Fruitville Library Meeting Room - 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In this Workshop we will use a "map" Christine has designed to explore how colors seem to lay over or under adjoining colors to create the illusion of transparency. It's kind of a jigsaw puzzle using columns of 2.5" strips of fabric. A "pining" tip will be shared too!

Workshop lead by Linda Swanson on the partial seams tutorial by Victoria Findlay Wolf for herringbone patterns. This quilt looks difficult but is easy to make.
