value quilt

This value quilt went very fast.  The squares are 8 inches.  It's a great scrap project, even the whites are scraps from my "whites drawer" (it was nice to get rid of those random unlabeled whites).    This was a great option for a charity quilt.

The HST are made by paring a print square with a white square.  With right sides together, draw a line from one corner diagonally to the other corner.  Sew 1/4 inch seam on both sides of the line.  Cut along the drawn line, down the middle of both seams.  You will now have 2 HST.  Open and press.

68 x 85 washed
val and co fabrics (and a few others thrown in)
cut 8 1/2 inch squares
