Linda Pearl - Guest Speaker

Event Date: 
Friday, May 16, 2014

Linda Pearl from The Patchwork Pearl ( was a guest speaker at the MQG May meeting. She spoke on how to use the color wheel to choose colors that would "pop".

Her lecture was titled:
"Why do all my quilts look the same"
Are you locked into your comfort zone, making variations of the same color palette over and over, because you are not sure where to go next? In this lecture, well explore the basics of color theory, and help to discover the quickest end to boredom you've ever seen. Ill also help you to see whether a fabric in your favorite palette has too much yellow or too much gray for what you're looking for. I'll also explain the"˜secret" color that make almost every quilt pop.
