Last week, they've shared lessons in value and each of them has shown just how colour value makes a difference in quilting. I think together these 4 blogs are amazing resources for the quilting community.
I've been reading the QAL posts for the Value Added series and have been learning alot! Everything that has been shared so far, has been very educational and I think doing a value quilt might actually strengthen my skills in picking fabrics overall. I love learning more about colour, and fabric choice and how to use them to my advantage.
Last week, I've randomly pull lights, mediums, and darks out from my stash and came up with this pile.

Since I'm new to value, I've posted it on Flickr and sort for advice on my selection - wasn't too sure about the blue napsack print. And as Rachel has kindly pointed out, the said print along with the light grey that I've selected, fell under the in betweens / borderline fabrics and suggested to use a dark and white solid in order to be able to read the value pattern I had envisioned.
Thus, this is the final pile of fabrics I'll be using :

There are four quilts with rhythmic value patterns in this quilt along and each hosts shares a step-by-step directions for one value-oriented quilt that they've created. I've decided to go for Rachel's Value Dance Quilt. It finishes at 52" x 62" and there are three parts in her quilt tutorial. "Part A" is about the fabric requirement and how to make the hour glass blocks, "Part B" will be the on point square blocks and these blocks are for the patchwork portion of the quilt. "Part C" is about the assembly and borders to finish the quilt. "Part A" was posted last week, and I've made these over the weekend...
I hope you'll check out the value added series and maybe join in the quilt along?
Have a lovely week ahead and thanks for visiting!
