Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably visit Choo Choo Quilters

Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably, the "Color Guys," stopped for a short visit at the October Choo Choo Quilters Guild meeting. They are in Chattanooga, along with artist Erin Lee Gafill, for a week of color workshops in quilting, knitting and painting and a slide show and presentation of Kaffe's work.

Kaffe and Brandon inquired about the evening's program on borders and bindings for quilts, shared their thoughts on the topic, and took questions from guild members and visitors. "Be bold with color," "use 20 rather than 5 fabrics of one color in your quilt designs," and "step back and look at your work on a neutral-colored wall to assess your work," were some of the tips and bits of wisdom they passed along to us.

What a special treat is was to have these internationally-acclaimed designers and fiber artists stop in for a visit! Thank you to guild member, Veronica Hofman-Ortega, for arranging their visit.
