Lecture: Beth Helfter – Give It A Scrap Slap
January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
As a mostly scrappy designer, Beth prefers to dig into her stash to create designs that appeal to her senses of color and value, using as many different fabrics as possible. Keeping to just a few color families in each quilt palette is one of her best tricks to keeping scrappy quilts from getting too out of hand but allowing them to sing with tone and movement.
As a member of Quiltmaker Magazine’s 2014 Scrap Squad, she recreated a design from each of six issues using only scraps, and was able to bring out different secondary designs and block highlights simply by adding more tone and value, as scrap quilts will do.Since founding EvaPaige Quilt Designs in 2005, she has published a vast range of scrappy patterns and her work has been featured in various quilting magazines and on well known quilting websites.
