New quilt

Color scheme:  black, white, purple, green. 
Due date:  next month.
What to do?

Eureka!

I just happened to have 4.5" black and white square-in-square blocks on my design wall. They came from a Sew Many Swaps exchange.


Here is the result so far.  These variable stars are 8.5".   I'm not sure how many I'll make, or what the sashing will be like....I think this is enough inspiration for one evening!

  1. I love your blocks! I just finished a black/white/lime green string quilt and am starting a disappearing nine patch with the remaining fabrics. Maybe I'll need to a add some purple too!

  10. Very nice block, and a good example of how the placement in value can change the look of the block!
