When I read that Karen over at Faeries and Fibres was planning a mystery QAL combining three of my favourite things - mysteries, hexagons and hand piecing, I was tempted :) but I talked myself out of joining in as I don't really need another project at the moment! However I then read that it was to be a study of value; now value is something that I am really bad at! I understand the concept of using lights, mediums and darks to add sparkle and interest within a project, but in practice I tend to make quilts using lots of different fabrics in medium tones in a very limited colour palette with a pale background. While I am generally happy with the finished quilts they sometimes look a little too safe and boring!
So I have decided to play along and join the fun, hopefully learning something along the way! I decided that I don't want to be distracted by colour choices! My blue fabrics basket is overflowing! I can't resist buying blue fabrics, but I rarely use blue in my projects!
I have my pieces all prepared ready to sew...
