Lecture and Trunk Show
Tara Faughnan is a professional freelance textile designer and quilter living and working in Oakland, CA.
She started to quilt around 2001 and along the way, her love of quilting led to school and a career in textile design, with clients including Michael Miller Fabrics and Pottery Barn Kids.
Tara draws inspirations from the simple bold geometry of antique quilts, the gorgeous bright colors from textiles around the world, and freedom and spontaneity found in unconventional and improvisationally pieced quilts. She uses simple geometry, complex color interaction and find the line the exists somewhere between harmony and discordance.

Workshop: Color Interaction-Playing with Solids
Playing with color is one of the most rewarding aspects of quilt making. It can be fun, intuitive, challenging and at times frustrating.
In this 6 hour class, we will explore how colors play off one another, delve into the importance of value, and learn tips for when you get stuck. Students will start with a variety of quick exercises, and move on to sewing small color studies that can be combined to make a larger quilt.
Friday, May 5, 10 am to 5 pm at the Stitching Studio in North Austin.
Price: $100 (AMQG members only)
