Color's Impact on Design (Stony Creek)

During a Jinny Beyer seminar session on color shading, participants created full-sized quilt mock-ups from strips of fabric pasted to paper foundations.

Each mock-up is a variation on a single, original Jinny Beyer quilt design called Stony Creek. Each mock-up uses the same fabrics and the same quilt design. However, the fabric placement varies in each version.

Jinny explores this color exercise, and how shading creates special effects, in the May/June 2010 issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. A pattern for the second quilt shown is available for purchase on our web-site.
