Color has the ability to change the look and focus of a quilt, especially when it comes to fabric choices. Our guests on this episode change or modify their initial fabric choice for a brand new look. We begin with Rayna Gillman and a fabric makeover. She shows us how to print on cloth that needs a little help, with the express purpose of slicing it up and using in a free-form quilt. Then meet color expert Judy Coates Perez for an overview of 500 color recipes. She’s creating custom recipes for dyeing fabric based on the weight of the fabric and water to dye ratio. Finally Michele Muska creates felted placemats with Dresden and double wedding ring shapes in a traditional color palette.
