In this unique workshop, the starting point will be a mixed selection of 5" charm squares. Each student will bring a single half yard of fabric already cut into 5" charms to share with the other students. Students will use those and other fabrics to look at color theory and value and to practice combining fabrics. Students will use Karen’s customizable Floral Dance needle turn appliqué pattern to put into practice what they learn about color theory.
