Join me and three other C&T Publishing authors tomorrow, January 8, 2021 for a Creative Happy Hour on using color effectively in your quilts! The discussion will be hosted live on Zoom by the Creative Spark Online Learning platform, a division of C&T.

We’ll start at 12 noon PST (3 PM EST). Visit for details and to sign up.

Becky Goldsmith, Jennifer Sampou, Katie Fowler, and I will talk about picking colors and using them in creative ways to help add the WOW factor to your next project. You’ll also be entered to win a giveaway book bundle and be able to ask us your own questions about how to use color. Cost is $4.99 and the event will be recorded and available for two months if you can’t make the live version or want to refer back to it.

Color is one of my favorite things about the quilting process, but it wasn’t always that way. I made a LOT of blue quilts before I gained the confidence to be fearless with color! You can learn too!

I hope you’ll join us.
