Tomorrow morning I'll publish Block 3 in the Value Proposition Quilt Along (QAL). It is an interesting block that allowed me to make good use of lots of small scraps. You can make your block with as few as three fabrics, one light, one medium and one dark or you can go the scrappy route like me! This is also a great place to experiment with a directional print such as a striped fabric! Have I whetted your appetite? Tune in first thing tomorrow morning for Block 3!
I've completed two more blocks for my Godstone Grannies (GG) coverlet. I used four fabrics, three prints and one solid.
If the fabric at the top of the picture looks familiar it is because it is the one I tinted yellow with watercolour paint and textile medium.
This pair of partial blocks will be used along the sides to square up the quilt.
The fabric on the outside round of hexies looks quite different au naturel versus tinted as in the picture below! Some of this is attributable to the tinting and some to the arrangement of the hexagons as a flower in the block below or as a long strip as above.
I mentioned an amazing giveaway and who doesn't love a giveaway? I follow a Vicki's blog, 2 Bags Full. Vicki organizes an event each January, Grow Your Blog, to help bloggers grown their blogs.
