This is my block shown in black and white. It reminds me of a moth or a butterfly!
This is my block in colour. While the block could be made of just three fabrics I chose to use a variety of scraps. I thought that it added a little more interest and I didn't have enough of some of the fabrics to cut the required number of hexagons! For example I didn't have enough of one of the black prints in Round 3 so I cut what I could and then added a second black print. They were positioned across from one another to balance the block. I'm naturally drawn to the earthy, muddy colours. When you make your block use the colours that appeal to you!
If you have extra hexagons hang on to them because you might find that they will fit in quite nicely into some of the scrapier blocks to come! My version of Block 4 will be quite scrappy!
I set up a Value Proposition QAL page on Flickr so you can post pictures of your blocks and see what others are doing! It is always exciting for me to see how others take my ideas and make them their own so please do join in the fun and share your pix!
If you are looking for previous installments of the Value Proposition QAL you will find all of the links under Quilt Alongs by Karen H just under the banner. I hope you have fun making Block 3. Block 4 will be available on May 30, 2014. If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment or so send me an email. I reply by email to every comment. If you don't hear from me it means you are a no-reply blogger so I have no way of contacting you unless you leave your email address in your comment!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
