Value Proposition and a Crochet Project in Progress!

I have been working on my Value Proposition Quilt (generous sew-a-long designed by Karen of  I got myself out of order in the initial round of making.  So I sat down with a pad of paper and went through all the blocks to find out which ones I had not made.  I am busy on that list now and also putting the first grey pathway around the blocks.   I laid them out on the deck this morning.  However, the deck is grey so the pathway looks a bit washed out.  It did make the other colors pop!  I have a few more blocks done waiting for their sashing.  I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I can't wait to start putting them together.

I started these crochet blocks last year on holiday.  It is a pattern from Mollie Makes Magazine.  I have slowly been adding to the blocks and have over 20!  Still got a ways to go.  
 I will be putting a round of Parchment (thats the name of the shade) around each block and then will stitch them up.  That will act like sashing.  I am making these with Stylecraft DK.  It is a fabulous yarn for afghans.  Lots of colors to choose from too.
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.


  1. I love both sets of blocks! beautiful!

  2. What interesting projects, love them both.

  3. Just love your colors for the Value Prop -- I am working on paths for mine and got "stuck" today with any more hexies to baste so stitched the two motifs with paths together than I had with me -- very exciting!!!

  4. oh! wow! I am LOVING your hexies! The green and grey are a stunning combination. I cannot wait to see it develop!

  5. Those are very pretty colors together. I also like the arrangement of the hexie blocks.
