Have you ever chosen fabrics you love; but when put together, the project is dead? Yesterday I was reminded how important value is. I have made numerous “I Spy” quilts over the past 8 years as I have collected small amounts of novelty prints. I pulled 80 squares to make a baby quilt.
Next I chose purple as the accent color and a multi colored stripe and dot fabric with a black background. When I sewed one block, I thought it was okay. However, when I pieced a couple of rows, I realized it died – WAY too dark.
