Valuable







































So here's the quilt in it's home.  Well, not it's HOME-home.  I already have a recipient in mind for this one, but I'll be keeping it around here for the duration of this Value Series.

I'm so excited about the things I'm learning about value.  You think you're gonna learn something over the next week?  Well, you're right, you will.  If you're like me, some of it will be stuff that you kinda knew intuitively.  As a visual learner and thinker though, I don't always understand why I'm doing something, or why a design or quilt does, or doesn't work.

And it's so great to have those lightbulb 'aha' moments!  I've had some of them already in the planning and schemeing that we've been doing.

So first off, you should go read Leila's post today.  It's a great start to our Value Lessons, since it explains what value actually is in simple way, with diagrams n all!


And then just a peak at my new basement sewing room!  I didn't do a stitch of sewing all last week, between  painting and other obligations.  But now it's all painted!  And I'm having a blast filling up my shelves and farming furniture from the rest of the house.

  13. The sewing room is great -- but can you share the paint color of the room with the chair and your lovely quilt draped over it? It is EXACTLY what I'm looking for! Thanks!
