January Program
The program for the January meeting will be Tara Faughnan giving her lecture on “Creating Colour Palettes”.

With 20 years of experience in quilting and textile design, Tara will share some of her approaches to pulling color palettes together and discuss the importance of value and proportion to the overall look of the quilt.

During the presentation, she will also delve into the mystery of why a beautiful palette can fall apart as soon as you cut into it and begin to sew with it. The presentation ends with a Q and A session.

Tara draws a lot of her inspiration from the simple bold geometry of antique quilts, the gorgeous bright colours of textiles from around the world and the freedom and spontaneity found in unconventional and improvisational pieced quilts. In her current work, she sees all three aspects represented. Using simple geometry, complex colors interactions and strives to find the line that exists somewhere between harmony and discord.
