February 12, 2024 Jennifer Houlden of Quilts By Jenn of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada CREATING WITH COLOUR -MY JOURNEY Lecture and Trunk Show via Zoom Jen asks, “Colour – Friend or Foe? Not everyone loves every colour and we are all drawn to different colours. I myself was never drawn to yellow and when I started quilting, it was not going to be in any of my quilts! HaHa! The joke was on me – it is now in many of my quilts. (My) trunk show highlights how my use of colour has developed over the years of working with fabric and how I even incorporate my not so favourite colours into my work. Experimenting with colour & value, especially vibrant and bold colours, but also soft pastels, and all others in between my goal is to create movement and secondary designs within my work. I do this by drawing on my natural instinct for colour & value as well as using the colour wheel to create stunning quilts and art work. Grab a comfy chair, sit back and enjoy my journey of colour from when I first started quilting to now as I showcase a wide array of colourful quilts. This trunk show is a great introduction to my Colour Magic lecture and workshop.” Jennifer’s website: http://WWW.quiltsby jenn.ca

As usual we had lots of things going on that night. We had sign up sheets for classes and for retreat, bonbon pincushion exchange, quilt show meeting and great treats as usual.

Show and Tell did not disappoint us.
