Color and Value

Quilting with solid fabrics are all the rage now.  This quilt top was pieced by Judi Y.  She did a beautiful job.  The pattern is by Annie Smith from her workshop on value.  If you haven’t realized it already, all nine blocks are the same pattern.  The only difference is the placement of the colors, but more importantly the light and dark values.  As they say “Value does all the work, but color gets the credit”.  Another plus to using solids rather than prints is that the quilting really shows!  I had so much fun with this quilt and even got to use variegated thread.  I wish this quilt could come and live at MY house!
