Ann Fox Presents Color Program

Ann Fox, from Brandon, presented a program entitled Coloring Our Quilts to Pine Belt Quilters in Hattiesburg at the March guild meeting. Ann taught x-ray technology at University Medical Center for 37 years. After retiring she visited a quilt guild and became intrigued with all aspects of color. She contrasted her years of studying shades of black, white, and gray to the spectrum of color we see in everyday life all about us. She set about to learn all she could from the color wheel and books and classes.
Ann holds two examples of the Shoo Fly block and explains what a difference can be achieved by manipulating values.

An example of neutrals with only red strips for accent.
The importance of value contrast was stressed in this essentially two-color quilt.
Ann will conduct a Color workshop for the guild on Wednesday, March 28.
