Value Proposition Quilt Along - Block 18

Welcome to the 18th and  last hexagon block in my Value Proposition Hexagon Quilt Along. I hope you've enjoyed making the blocks. This has been a fun quilt for me (it is hexagons so of course it is fun) to make and to share. I've got my border fabric selected so next Friday I'll share pictures of the fabric and how I will attach the border fabric to my quilt top. So let's get going on the last block!

My Value Proposition Block 18

Once again I chose to use a striped fabric to add visual interest to my quilt. You could do the same or you could use "made" fabric! Make it your own!

This is my Block 18! In case you haven't guessed, it is one of my favourites! Once again you can see that I've used the muddy colours that I'm naturally drawn however they look just as good if not better done it other colours and fabrics.

And there is photographic proof of this on the Value Proposition QAL page on Flickr. Head on over and see what others are doing,. While you are at it why not add pictures of your own Value Proposition Hexagon blocks I hope that you'll post pictures of your completed quilt tops too! If you have a blog and post pictures on your blog let me know so I can send others over to visit!

All of the patterns and instructions for my Value Proposition Hexagon QAL are under the tab Quilt Alongs by Karen H just under the banner at the top of this page. Have fun making Block 18. Tomorrow I'll share a picture of my quilt top minus borders. I love it and can't wait to add borders and get it quilted. I have a feeling it is going to be a well used and well loved quilt!

Next Friday (December 19) I'll write about adding the path (for those of you who need help) and options for finishing the edges of the quilt including attaching borders! If you need information about construction the path you will it here

I hope you enjoyed my Value Proposition Hexagon QAL. If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. I send an email response to every comment so if you don't hear from me it means you are a no-reply blogger and I have no way of contacting you (unless you leave me your email address).

Until I post again, happy sewing!
