In all there are 18 whole blocks and 4 partial side setting blocks. I designed the pattern with a triple path and selected two fabrics, both of which are very light but the middle path is just a shade darker. The effect is very subtle but it appeals to me because it shows off the blocks. A darker fabric would have made for a very dramatic quilt. It's all about personal taste! So now it is time to reveal my Value Proposition Quilt before the border is attached.
I know many of you have used the Flickr page to post pictures of your blocks and I sincerely thank you for that. I am very impressed with what I am seeing. If you haven't taken a look here are three quilt makers who have taken pictures of their blocks.
On Friday December 19 my post will be about the path (for those of you who need the help) and also about finishing the edges of the quilt. Those of you who are new to English paper pieced hexagons are likely asking how to deal with the edges of the quilt I will have several options for finishing your quilt! This is one of the fabrics that I am considering for the border on my quilt.
It is from Andover's Winterthur Museum line. This is what it would look like on my quilt. I also have an aqua print that I'm considering using (if I can find it in my stash)! It is still up in the air but hopefully I'll have made my decision by next week!
I'm liking up with Angie over at Quilting Readers Garden where you will find more hexagon inspiration!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
