What's Black and White?

I've found some time to play with the black and white fabric I bought here. I cut it into strips. Made me some foundation pieces. Sewed the strips to the foundation for these string blocks. I love that I was able to take this picture outside. Look no snow! Green grass! Finally!

I then sewed the blocks together to make these blocks that I am totally in love with.

I'm hoping to have a top done soon.

  5. Fun blocks. I love black and white fabrics and black and white quilts with a touch of color. You have done a nice job with contrast which I found to be a huge part of the success of a black and white quilt. Can't wait to see more!
