Programs

Carol, Carolyn, and Tommi are working to get Programs planned for 2019.  

Quilt Show

The Spring Fire last summer devastated much of western Huerfano County.  Although the town of LaVeta did not burn, it was still under threat.  This year there was concern about major flooding, possibly flash floods.  Walsenburg had also been concerned about potential flooding.  Fortunately this did not happen.  


However, we cancelled our Show due to this threat.  We have been considering whether to host a Show in the future.  While most members of the Guild do want to host a Show, we now need to consider dates & location.

Retreat

Carolyn and Shirley planned a wonderful time at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Colorado Springs!   See the photos on another page.

Raffle

Our new Games Manager, Maryellen, takes over this job with the advent of our new Raffle Year.  We look forward to selling tickets at several venues in the near future.

Raffle Quilt

The new raffle quilt, for the drawing in July 2020, is titled Times Gone By.  It was created by Marilyn W. and Janet Z. and is shown on our home page.


2019 Mystery Quilt

Mystery Quilt -- Section One

    You will need five fabrics for this quilt, in a range of values.  The term value is used to describe the lightness or darkness of a color.  A limited value range can create a calm mood or subtle design.  Strong contrasts lend drama to your work.  Using the entire value spectrum creates a beautiful, rich effect.

     Very important is the use of contrasting values, that can make or break your quilt design.  I will offer two sets of fabric choices to help you see where the contrast must take place in this quilt.  

     You will choose a focus fabric (1) that will set the color scheme for your quilt.  It should be low-valued, the Darkest fabric in the set.  From that color scheme you will need two “background fabrics”, one that is the Lightest, high value in your group of fabric (2), and the second that should read Medium Light or Light Medium(3).  Those two must offer contrast within the background.  

     The fourth (4) and fifth (5) fabric should be middle value, a Medium and a Medium Dark.  I suggest that these two come from the same color family, which may be influenced by your focus fabric.
