Amy Struckmeyer: Reframe Your Color Story

February 17, 2023

November 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm CST

Join us as member Amy Struckmeyer presents “Reframe Your Color Story,” a dress rehearsal for her lecture at QuiltCon 2024.

From Amy: Learn to build color palettes for your quilts that create a specific mood, are dynamic, and that tell a story… your story. There is no reason to be afraid of color, yet many of us don’t know where to start. I will give you tools and ideas to gain confidence in creating your own color combinations. I will share how I experiment with temperature, hue, and value to select palettes specific to each of my projects. And I will show how these same concepts were successfully applied in award winning quilts from previous QuiltCon shows. My understanding of color has been acquired through a lifelong series of experiences, observations, and investigations. Learn to recognize and build upon your own distinctive awareness of this most relative medium in art: color.
