They may not be technically Black and White quilts because of the color, but I think at least a splash of color really makes a Black and White Quilt special.
This is my collection of Black and Whites. I told you I have been collecting them for a long time!
I pulled out all the Black and Whites recently so I could make a baby quilt for a little one due in just a few weeks. We don't know the gender so I thought this would be a fun quilt and work for either a boy or a girl. I finished putting the top together today and have not decided how to quilt it yet. This is just a little different take on a quilt from the book "New Cuts for New Quilts" by Karla Alexander.
Right now I have a plan in my head for a quilt using a star block and a square-in-a-square block, and adding the splash of color in connector blocks. The idea is from a great book which I have used in the past, "Thinking Outside the Block" by Sandi Cummings. I have a friend lined up to quilt this one for me because I really want to have it finished in time to give as a Christmas gift -- this year! (Also because she, Angela, does gorgeous work.) So....this is all I have done, so far. But I am confident it will be done in plenty of time. For one thing I'm inspired and for another thing.....Christmas is coming in a hurry!
