Lea’s lecture, Color Theory for Quilters,  will address key concepts for quilters related to the selection and use of color in quilting. Topics will include:

  • The Color Wheel
    A history and composition of the color wheel
  • Color Schemes
    Combinations that work, and fixing those that don’t
  • Value
    Why light vs. dark is actually more important than color
  • Temperature
    The visual and emotional effects of colors and proportions: some colors are timid, others are bullies, learn to manage them so that they all play well together.

Scotti  McCarthy, RMQM, “Red and White Quilts Lecture and Trunk Show”March 16, 2023, 12pm-3pm, BVCC

Join us in person, as Scotti McCarthy of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum presents a lecture and trunk show featuring an array of beautiful red and white quilts.   Who hasn’t been captivated by the eye-catching beauty of a red-and-white quilt? These stunning quilts can be a simple design of a patchwork quilt or the intricate design of a Mariner’s Compass. Red and white quilts run the gamut of time from the early 1800s to contemporary studio art quilts. RMQM brings you a wonderful collection of red-and-white quilts in a PowerPoint presentation as well as hands-on quilts for all to view and touch. This meeting will be held at the Boulder Valley Christian Church.  For more information, contact Pam Breig, vp-programs@quakingaspenquiltguild.org.
