The BCQC-2 has three major objectives:
* COLOR — Learning all about Color Selection
* PIECING —Techniques for successful Flip’n’Sew pieced blocks
* EMBELLISHING — Promote individual creativity while reinforcing the
techniques learned in the BCQC-1 module
The Color portion of the module is extensive. It will cover the first 6 tasks:
· Planning for Color
· Impact of Color Choices
· Color Mixing
- Reading a Color Wheel
- Color Play
· Fast Color Selection Techniques
The Piecing portion of this course will focus on using cotton fabrics and the flip’n’sew method of piecing a block. It will not include a pattern, but does recommend using strips of fabric rather than patch pieces of fabric. So, yardage (1/4 or even 1/8 yardage widths is fine) for this method. We will be using cotton (but you can substitute sturdy silk if you have yardage on hand). This section includes the next two tasks:
· Fabric Selection
- Flip’n’Sew Method (pitfalls and solutions)
The Embellishing portion of this course will include:
· Seam Embroidery
· Silk Ribbon Ideas
· Finishing with Beads, Baubles, and Charms
In total there are 11-tasks for this course. Just as in the BCQC-1 each new task will be emailed to you after you have posted the prior task.
This is the "follow-on" class to the BCQC-1, which you should have completed first. It builds on the techniques learned in the initial basic course and gives you experience in selecting COLORs for your fabrics/embellishments that will work together nicely. [Note: If you are presently enrolled in the BCQC-1, and are at least on Task #10, you can still sign up for the BCQC-2...as I know you'll have time to finish the BCQC-1 shortly.]
The reason for even offering the BCQC-2 is so that folks (especially true beginners) that want to attempt a block for themselves...with little "influence" from me...but still have a teacher available to answer questions CAN WORK A NEW BLOCK. I'll walk you through the various "layers" of embellishments and offer advice on how to balance the work as we progress through these. Before we even begin, the first few tasks will introduce the "world of color selection" to you...helping you to feel a bit more at ease when combining colors in fabrics and/or embellishments.

The class will begin on the 19th...so you should be logged into the class blog site by the evening of the 18th if possible. As with all of the courses...you'll receive a WELCOME email after registering and an INVITATION to join the course blogsite. The invitation only "works once" so, when you get to the site remember to bookmark the URL. If you forget, just shoot me an email and I'll send you a link back to it.
