Quilting Retreat Report (with photos of all my WIPs): http://quiltingfortherestofus.blogspot.com/2012/05/retreat-report.html (Ignore that the first picture doesn't show--it's a weirdism I can't fix. That's just a picture of the back of my car packed for retreat so it's not significant.)

This episode is all about value! In what could arguably be considered the second half of episode 11, "In Which We Get Colorful," we explore the concept of color value and its impact on quilts. Learn how value is important, how to work with value in your quilt design, and tools and resources to help you learn more about value.

In this episode, we get the first interview with "Quilters Like the Rest of Us;" I'm excited! This time we chat with the Sandys from my guild-that-is-not-a-guild-but-a-bee, and the conversation leads into the discussion about color. In the "episode proper," after listener comments, I run through some definitions and describe color schemes, and then we talk about where to get color inspiration.
