Work with complementary colors as you pick up pro tips from Amy and Janine on layout and sewing techniques.
Can tiny polkadots and large butterfly prints co-exist? What about wide and thin strips? Learn how to work with varying proportions as you continue to hone your eye for hues, values and other design elements.
Use the color wheel to your advantage as you identify and experiment with various warm and cool colors, utilizing "in-between" shades with success.
Impress peers at cocktail parties by throwing around phrases like "hexadic color schemes" -- or, more importantly, use them to add pop to your quilts! Using three pairs of complementary colors, you'll learn how to mix and match various colors and fabric widths to create stunning blocks.
