Values Make the Design Come Into Focus!

This beautiful quilt was made entirely from scraps. Create your own version and clean out your scrap bag at the same time. Any combination of colors and fabric styles will be great.

The design is based on values, which are arranged a bit loosely to create interest and help move the eye around the quilt.

While the quilt is not difficult to make there is quite a bit of sewing involved since it’s based on 1 1/2″ squares. Plus, you can make it as large as you want.

The quilt in process with two columns of three blocks.

The designer, Jolene from Blue Elephant Stitches, says:

“… (it’s a big block, like 18.5″ square) so to make a nice lap size you could make 12 blocks in a 3 by 4 setting like I did here.”

Three blocks in a row will make a lovely runner, while four in a square will be a pretty table quilt. Or go large for a bed-sized quilt.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
