TQT Welcomes Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios!

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

Color Workshop
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!
In this hands-on workshop, Amy will take students from exploring the color wheel to perfecting their own color palette and understanding how to make their own harmonious choices. The workshop consists of several lessons, with thought-provoking and fun activities. The workshop is a study in color, and does not involve any sewing. Lunch will be provided.
