On Wednesday next week, my popular webinar series is examining white in our quilts. When you make quilts, white — and all its gorgeous variations: bone, oyster, muslin, snow, cream, etc. — is not a “non-color.” White brings breath, space, and contrast to the rainbow of color that is our palette.
In case you’ve never watched a webinar, it’s really fun. My series is dense with information but entertaining, too. I mean, come on. It’s me. You know there are going to be a few monkey jokes in there. But I treat quilting with great respect and I’m a history and design nerd, so you’ll get your money’s worth.
Here is some anonymous feedback from folks who have joined the Color Me Quilter webinars over the past few months — so you don’t have to take my word for it.

“New interesting aspects to approach to choose colors – helps me with my quilts.”
“Changed how I look at the colour black – I usually think of it as a “non-color” to use when I can’t find anything else. Now I will look at Black as a key component of any colour grouping.”
“I am fairly new to quilting; quilting courses not easily available in my location so it is extremely beneficial to have an update on some of the basics – bindings, quilting techniques, applique etc.”
“Keep up the good work! I’m looking forward to the next program I participate in.”
“I downloaded the seminar so that I can go over it again. Usually, a second reading like going back through my magazines, I find something I missed. Reminds me of reading stories to my young children the 20th time. Find those small details!”
I wanted to use more black and found the accent colors that she used very helpful.
“A lot more information than I thought. I didn’t even know there was that much to know about the color yellow — my favorite!”
“It was great to have both Mary and Marianne on the webinar. Each offered their perspective which was very interesting. Blue is a favorite color of mine as well. I particularly enjoyed the history of blue. Indigo is amazing!” [Note: Mom was a special guest on “Blue.”]
“Mary’s an AWESOME presenter … very entertaining and motivating – a great teacher on quilting.”
“The historical information about popular color combinations of the past was very interesting. The slides were well-chosen.”
