Intuitive Color Class with Wanda Hanson



My sewing buddy, Cathy, and I spent the morning in Charlotte, NC, with Wanda Hanson.
We learned about the color wheel, warm and cool colors, textures, contrasts and color values.
Wanda talked to us about her lovely quilts displayed in the gallery. I love to look at pictures of Wanda's quilts on her blog exuberantcolor. But Wanda's quilts are even more beautiful, vibrant and colorful when they are viewed in person.
Our last class exercise was to create a colorwash project with the 100 squares we had played with all morning. It was challenging and FUN. Wanda is an excellent teacher.
Before I left, I bought a beautiful quilted cobblestone mug rug, created by Wanda, and a bag of 100 yummy, beautiful batik squares.
It was a great class! I had a blast! Thank you, Wanda.

Glad you had such a wonderful opportunity - it's a little too far from Australia for me to attend!

(PS I came in from Wanda's blog).

You did a great job on your colorwash quilt! I've been following Wanda for a number of years now and am never disappointed. She probably has more energy and gets more done than anyone I know. It must have been a real treat to meet her in person! Thanks for sharing!

WOW! I was wondering if you'd attend Wanda's show, being it's so close - well, in your state. I've always liked your color sense, and Wanda's. Looks like we'll be seeing even more color here.
Hugs!
