TQT Welcomes Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios!

The Quilter's Trunk is excited to host Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios for two events that promise to be fun and educational. Blue Underground Studios is known for its fresh and innovative patterns. In addition, Amy designs fabric for Riverwoods by Troy. Her most recent line, Color Matters, features beautiful, bold colors with large graphic designs. It combines colors in a unique way that really pops!
 


Amy is here to de-mystify the color wheel and give you the confidence to play with color and expand your horizons when putting projects together.  What you learn can be applied not only to quilts, but to any project that involves color choice - painting your kitchen, selecting carpet for your den, picking shoes to match an outfit, you name it!


Color Confidence Lecture & Trunk Show
Join Amy as she discusses the role of color in society, color psychology, beginning color theory and more.  This will be followed by a Blue Underground Studios trunk show.
