Shake, Rattle, & Sew. In this workshop Carolyn will share what she has learned in using the elements of design to add interest and dimension to quilt projects. The class will explore the components of art (color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value) and how it will improve your quilt design making choices. Participants will review some traditional quilt blocks and look at how changing the components (line, shape, form, value, and color) can transform a very ordinary quilt block to an extraordinary quilt block. This will be approx. 45 minutes of the class. You will use these principles and make a class project using a traditional block. You will SHAKE it up, add a little pizzazz using the elements of art (RATTLE), and then SEW these creative blocks together to create one amazing wall quilt. Maximum number in class: 20
