Who is up for my second quilt along (QAL)? I will launch my next QAL, Value Proposition on Friday, April 18, 2014. It is a hexagon quilt made entirely of 1" hexagons. Over the next several days I'll provide information leading up to the launch so you'll be ready to start sewing next weekend! Thereafter I'll post the block patterns every two weeks. Are you excited? I am!
This is my next GG (Godstone Grannies) diamond block. I quite like the lacy feel of this one and I am satisfied with the colours so there will be no alterations to the fabric unlike the block I showed you yesterday! This diamond will be one of a pair. I will make some slight alterations to the layout of some of the hexagons in the second diamond so that the second one will have a slightly different look. The hexies are 3/4" in size so they stitch up a little slower than the 1" size but they are a nice size for fussy cuts!
It is a beautiful day today so I'm off to help my Mom with her garden. When that is done I'll cut out the April block from Julia's Hexie BOM. The April block is a basket and I know what I'm going to do! You can see the April block here. I'm making each block out of blue fabrics (I've always wanted a blue and white quilt). I'll post pictures when it is done!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
