Janine Burke's Craftsy Classes

2014 Block of the Month: Craftsy Color Theory

Join quilting instructors Amy Walsh and Janine Burke as you say goodbye to color confusion. Learn how to choose inspired color combinations for captivating quilts! Start with color theory basics and discover accessible techniques for combining colors. Create a soothing, low-contrast look with analogous colors, or an energetic, high-contrast effect using complementary colors. Add emotion to your designs with warm and cool colors, make your piecing pop with hexadic color schemes and create contrast with value. Along the way, you'll make six different blocks, sewing and arranging them into a vibrant 60" x 90" (152 cm x 229 cm) sampler quilt. Plus, you can develop your color confidence without having to worry about selecting fabrics-— use the same sumptuous collection of Michael Miller's batiks that Amy and Janine work with in class. These fabrics are available in convenient kits right from Craftsy! Don't forget to look for the kit when you sign up for this fun, free class.
