I taped my first video a couple weeks ago. Quilters Newsletter and our other publications offer web video and DVDs with lessons on quilting and sewing topics. Wow. I have a greater appreciation for those newscasters who can portray great sincerity. And how about the sportscasters who fill hours of airtime when weather delays their scheduled event. I have a new appreciation for the on-air personality.
My video will probably edit down to about ten minutes of information. The topic was Auditioning Fabrics for a Quilt. I talked about defining value; which parts should be light and which dark. We all love to work with color, but it is value that brings art to life. Your eye will go to the area with greatest contrast; where the lights and darks are most defined. So I determine my values, then choose my colors, then rough cut fabrics to build a block; switching fabrics out until I get the best result.
So to celebrate my video, I’m giving readers a chance to win this stack of white and black fat quarters designed by Ro Gregg for Northcott. Leave a comment by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, for a chance to win. One comment per person, please. Open to those who haven’t won something from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.
[Please note: this giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Linda S, winner of this beautiful bundle!]
