My Value quilt quilt top is complete! 168 squares, 336 triangle pieces are are complete! I could not be happier with the end result, and am so glad I decided on this layout. It really makes the color value pop and my worries of not being able to tell light from dark are no more.
Again, I followed Katie's tutorial over at sewkatiedid and ended with this beautiful result. The finished top measures 60 1/2 inches x 70 1/2 inches, a perfect couch/lap quilt!
If you haven't realized by now, I love love love color, and I think this is by far my favorite quilt by a mile that I have made. I'm glad it's going to my mom, as we live close to one another, so I can always visit to see it. I hope she loves it as much as I do.
Im thinking of a pieced back, but I'm thinking something fairly simple, since the front is quite busy.
As for quilting it, I think this quilt needs straight lines. I'm thinking of outlining the diamond shapes with quilting 1/4 inch from the separation between light and dark...thoughts?? suggestions?? I'm not totally sold on it yet, but I'm not sure what else to do...
