Value Added Quilt Along

Welcome to the Value Added Quilt Along!!
Amy, Jolene, Rachel and I have emerged ourselves into the subject of value quilts and we are ready to share our ideas and creations with you all.

Boy's Nonsense


Our QAL will start off with a series of informative posts covering different aspects of value. The following week we will share our individual quilt designs and tutorials on our blogs. We hope to inspire you to explore value in quilting with us! Please join our Flickr group where we will be available to chat with you about colour value and help you along the way. Feel free to add any previous value projects you have made to the group pool. This quilt along is not limited to our quilt designs only we encourage you to come up with your own creations and share them with us on Flickr and in our linky party.

The Value Added QAL schedule is as follows:

Tuesday 23rd - Understanding Value -with Leila @ Where the Orchids Grow
Wednesday 24th - Leading the Eye -with Amy @ Badskirt
Thursday 25th - Value Patterns  -with Rachel @ Stitched in Color
Friday 26th - Value Dynamics -with Jolene Blue @ Elephant Stitches
Starting October the 29th quilt tutorials on our individual blogs.
November the 30th link up party here @ Where the Orchids Grow
I have learned lots of new things in preparing for the QAL. If like me, you have not given much thought to colour value in quilting before I think you are in for a treat! I really hope you will take something away from this QAL, be it a fun new quilt design, a fresh look at your fabric stash or how to improve your block designs. There is so much more to value than water colour quilts and tumbling blocks (not that there is anything wrong with those of course!)
I am very excited about the amazing quilt designs Amy, Jolene and Rachel came up with and I can't wait to get started on them!



So are you ready to talk value with us? Please do join our Flickr group, grab a button and enjoy!
