    I found this to be an excellent video on color theory. Katie presents the subject matter in a very clear and straight forward manner. Her explanations of color terms and definitions are easy to understand and her class exercises are well paced. I found her seven drawer color system of organizing fabric to be ingenious. Quilt composition and transparency were distinctly explained and demonstrated

    . I would highly recommend this video to someone who needs more clarification on color theory.

    :

    Color Theory for Quilters serves as both a delightful introduction or kind refresher for someone of any skill level. I love that Katie's playful nature came across in the lessons. There were several ideas that had eluded me until watching this like the Graphic Grayscale and how well she does transparencies.
    I do highly recommend this course especially for people participating in critique grou

    ps. This course would be a great way to get everyone understanding color vocabulary and on the same page.

    Very understandable. Easy site to navigate. Love seeing all 3 color wheels to see how backgrounds influence all our colors. Value class was extremely helpful, sorting my fabrics will help me figure out my shopping list! Visuals are awesome. Seeing her quilts that utilize these techniques was so helpful. Love her honesty, humor and understandablity ( is that a word like purpler? ). Found it very

    helpful to see the assignment and then go to studio, do my assignment & then come back to watch it again to see what I missed or didn't get. Transparency is my new favorite thing to do!
