black and white top

Remember that fabric that Dave bought me?


I decided to use them before my pips to try out working with a Jelly Roll. 
It was not easy to find the right pattern since I didnt keep them facing the same way when cutting. This led to the lights and darks being in the wrong spots
sewn together

now to add some colour...

maybe a bit more black and white...
Thats good!

the book I started it with


The quilt pattern 

mine doesnt look much like it because this calls for a jelly roll(40 strips) and I had only 1/2 that. so its a lap quilt


Now to figure out the back and quilt it. 
Its 47x53

ps- can you tell which pictures I took at night?

I think it is terrific! Great choice of pattern for the fabrics. I like lap quilt size - you can show off your quilt on your couch, a chair, rocker, folded on a bench. A large quilt can only be on a bed. Nice job.

Wonderful quilt! The black and white fabric is so dramatic and with just the touch of color in the border it turned out amazing!

Wow, that looks really fantastic in the black and white. I like that block pattern too. Great job!
