Finished!












I have acquired a nice collection of black-and-white fabrics. I began this quilt Labor Day weekend and finished it -- quilted and bound -- this evening!! (I took advantage of three free evenings this past week.) Though most of my quilts use many more different fabrics, this design would not be as effective with more than the six that it has. The backing is red/white/black print that I bought in tremendous quantity in the Red Tag section of JoAnn's a couple of years ago. (Can't beat good quality when it's just $1/yard!) My Magpie friends provided advice for the border which is a flap of white-on-white, then black-on-black, and the wider red. The finished size is 89 x89. I don't know its destination.

    Once again, I am so not worthy...
