Starburst Quilt Workshop
In this workshop led by iconic artists Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably, you'll learn how to take a traditional lone star quilt and make it fabulous simply by the use of color. The Starburst Workshop is primarily about learning confidence in color choice and placement and is suitable for beginners who know how to use a rotary cutter and sew a seam. It is also for more advanced quilt makers who wish to concentrate on complex color development.

Fabric to bring to class:
Kaffe wants you to CHOOSE YOUR OWN color palette, so decide whether you want your palette cool
or warm, pastel, jewel toned or dark and brooding. This is your quilt your choice. Then choose a few
fabrics in your chosen theme that you love and want to use. Also give some thought to the progression
of colour and scale you would like to see emanate through your quilt. Bring ฝ พ yd/metre cuts of the
few fabrics you have chosen. Diamonds are cut from 2 พ strips.
On the day of the workshop, you will be able to select from a whole range of fabrics through the host
shop. Kaffe & Brandon will be able to assist participants in choosing fabrics to use in their quilt. Come
