Black & White

I am trying to decide what to do with these 12" black and white blocks I made a while ago. Sampler quilts are not my forte... Perhaps making three separate bags using two blocks for each bag. Or three table runners. Maybe I should use a yellow and black print fabric as sashing.

If I turn these into a quilt, it will be scrappy since every block has different fabrics. Scrappy quilts present a challenge for me, although these are better because only two colors are involved. I suppose harmony plays a big part on my designs...

These blocks were part of a block of the month project. The other blocks are stashed somewhere, as I did not like them at the time. I wonder if I should hunt for them.

I will await your ideas before I work with them. Hurry up! :-)



  1. Sampler quilts are always a challenge. If you can find a wonderful border fabric that ties the blocks together (black/white/pop)it will bring continuity to your quilt. Add a pop with a red/black/white and sash with cornerstones in red. Any color with your black/white sampler blocks will do - you just need to find the pop. Can't wait to see what you come up with...

  2. ... and I can't wait to come to Thimbles and Threads to pick up the fabric that will tie it all together!


I am so glad you are taking the time to leave a comment. It is always nice to hear from you!
