|Folded Box blocks, pattern by Donna Lynn Thomas|
My design wall currently holds some of the 3D Folded Box blocks that I have been making as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Making these blocks every month has been a great learning experience on the importance of value (lightness and darkness) in fabric selection. Each time I try to choose a batch of fabrics for the blocks with a good mix of light, medium and dark, but I'm still surprised by which combinations work really well for the 3-D effect and which are less successful. I can't wait to see all the different colors together!
I am sharing with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than Housework, Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag, and Scraptastic Tuesday at Mrs Sew & Sow..
