Grow your Colour Confidence

There are some quilters out there that create unique colour schemes with confidence and panache – and now you can learn to do it too! This series teaches you how. Follow along and join in the challenges to put some personality into your quilts! Your colour confidence will begin to grow and your quilts will be fresh and exciting. The good news is that you don’t need to understand theory to do it.

 Colour confidence is about letting go of right and wrong!

The secret is understanding how certain colour combinations make you feel. The series starts with some basic skills that’ll help you build confidence you need. Because that’s really all it is: confidence! Once you’ve practiced some basics with the weekly challenges, follow along for ideas and inspiration and you’ll soon be making quilts that could only have been made by you!
