340 colors, that’s why! The picture shows me holding four bundles of 85 charms that are all different! I’m developing a color class for quilters (no dyeing involved) and this is the absolute best way to affordably get a wide range of colors of varying hues, values, and intensities (chromas)! And yes, those color terms still make my head spin. I guess that’s because I felt confident enough to match up colors without feeling the need to know the terms.
Actually, I wondered if using Kona would be ‘diluting my brand’ and I decided that even if did, it was still the most cost-effective way for students to have a lot of colors to try! This class will be all about seeing color a bit better and trying out new combinations. We’ll also be test-driving different patterns and comparing the designer’s color choices with our own selections.
I have submitted the class to the Modern Quilt Guild for consideration for the 2022 QuiltCon. Locally, I plan to offer it as a trial so I can work out the bugs, then add it to my class offerings for guilds. Once I hear back from QuiltCon I will get a date and location set up.
