Red has long been important to quilters. In the 19th century true Turkey Red, like indigo blue, was highly prized for its color-fastness. Newer commercial dyes are not as sturdy, but quilters still used them widely. Today red is often associated with Christmas and used sparingly otherwise. We’ll look at some astounding historical examples and I’ll show how I use real reds in my own quilts. Color exercises I usually avoid and a special guest will make this workshop completely different.
You will need at least a yard of solid red, like a deeply ripe tomato.
One yard of white fabric
Various pieces of black, yellow, and other prints or solids.
Rotary cutter, rulers and mat
Sewing machine and all standard sewing equipment.
