Color Theory for Modern Quilters

Page Content: 

Color theory is a great tool for putting together interesting quilt palettes. It seems complicated and full of rules to so many people, but it doesn't have to be. Kim will demystify the concepts of color theory and show tons of juicy examples from the modern quilt world. This webinar will also feature a variety of tools and tricks for how to put together a color palette and how to find and use your own color inspiration for successful color use in modern quilts.

Kim Eichler-Messmer learned how to sew in the 5th grade when she made a quilt with her dad out of old shirts.
