What you'll learn in this sewing & textile class:

Do you love bold strong colors? In exploring what is so compelling about the play of one color against another, we find much of it is in the value. The gray solids have all of the value and so retain much of the drama of interaction associated with the bright colors. 

This will be a color play class where we examine the relationship between color combinations and their grayscale counterparts. Students will experiment with color groups and grays to learn the power of value in color combinations and the potential of combining grays and colors in tandem. We will do a series of exercises in solid fabric with color and grayscale palettes using 6 ½ inch sampler squares, combining basic paper piecing and strip piecing techniques.

Bernina sewing machines, neutral thread, irons, and design walls are provided for use in the classroom.

Required supplies to bring with you (all available for purchase at Gotham Quilts except for phone/camera)

  • Rotary cutter

  • 24" ruler

  • Fabric: solids in favorite colors, some grays and black and whites in solids and prints if you have them. I will provide some solids in various neutral tones as well as colors to round out your supplies for the exercises.

Gotham Quilts was born out of the friendship of two self-proclaimed fabric nerds in Manhattan. We met years ago in one of Andrea’s quilting classes, when Ivete fell so hard for quilting she finished three quilts during a 6-week class! We’ve been great friends ever since, and always talked about...
