I've been collecting black and white fabrics for a few years now, and the magazine gave me just the right boost to get started on a new quilt.
I bought this red fabric off Ebay, with the sole purpose of jazzing up a black and white quilt. At the time, I really didn't have a pattern or design in mind.
So, this afternoon, I spent my time cutting up some fat quarters, 10" inch squares from a quilting forum swap and some odd small pieces of black and white fabrics. I have the black FQs to go and then I'm going to cut a little bit from my yardage pieces to be sure I have plenty of variety. I'll figure I'll have quite a few leftovers, so a neat idea for the back occurred to me:
It's very sloppy because I was in a hurry to get the thoughts down and back to cutting, but I think you can get the idea. The main graphic is the flying geese wandering from bottom left to upper right.
Wish me luck!!
