Discover the magic of creating glowing patchwork using continuous gradient fabrics that change smoothly from dark to light or from one color to another.

On Saturday, dye up a bunch of gradient fat quarters with a quick and easy technique. On Sunday, sew up some patchwork squares of delight with your newly dyed fabrics.

This two day workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced quilters. It includes hands-on dyeing and piecing. Bring your sewing machine on Sunday.

Dyeing and Quilting with deLight Dyeing and Quilting with deLight Artist Statement:
I have developed a low-water, goof-proof way to dye continuous gradient fabrics just the way I want them. I am excited about the possibilities of using theses fabrics to make standard quilt patterns pop with light. I have lately been re-visiting the earliest patchwork patterns I learned as a beginner; rail fence, nine patch stars and even checkerboards. They become fresh and new using gradient fabrics.
