What's Black and White and...


My quilt for 15 min play. If you've been stopping by this year you'll know I've been sewing little bits of scraps together then cutting them up again and sewing again and cutting again da da da .

Here is the result

I have learned so much from this project:
All colors work together
How to make flying geese the no waste way
Looking at blocks in a different setting  on point
Balancing a strong graphic print against a strong color  cheddar (reminds me of Monteray Jack Cheese)
To use the net for help  sizes for setting triangles.

But wait there's more LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS!!!!

15 min play is the brain child of Victoria of Bumble Beans. Thank you !!

Lots more variations to see at 15 min play and voting. Go visiting and vote for your favorite leave a comment you know how we all just love to have people stop by to say Hi.

I'm off to continue quilting before the heat.  Terry

Terry, your quilt is wonderful!! The colours sparkle like a stain glass window. The cheddar in the border is unexpected but works so well. I love it!!

Great way to use up all your scraps! How big is the block? Those triangles in the middle must be so tiny!! Love the pictures of your grand children!! Hugs, Daniëlle
