Design Wall... playing with value





I started this the other day.  I chopped up scraps and bits and pieces until I had a big stack of lights and darks.  Then the half square triangle fest began.  The squares are 6" and I then trimmed the HSTs to 5.5".  Still lots to make and lots of tweaking as the whole thing shows up on the design wall.  This quilt is telling me it will be a big one.  I have been wanting to do this for a long time.  I really love the play of value.  And I think I have been toying with this inspiration for years!

Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday...
