A miniature black and white


I am so excited to be included in this challenge. My favorite colors are red, black and white and I've made quilts in these colors all my life. I look forward to trying to branch out and use black and white with other colors! : )

This is my first attempt at a project for this challenge, though I hope to make a bed-sized quilt before it's over!
I've always wanted to make a miniature quilt but have always been nervous about all those little pieces. Well, in an effort to add stress to the holidays I have ignored all else for the day and made a little miniature quilt. When I laid it out my first thought was "Wow, that's a LOT of orange for one quilt."
The little friendship star blocks are 3" and the whole thing measures 14.5"x22". I am playing with the idea of another border but haven't added anything else.

I've yet to quilt it but hopefully will do that tomorrow and not have this end up a UFO. I don't know what I'll do with it after that, since I'm not a real big orange person.

It's beautiful! My, it looks like it would be big! I couldn't have done something that small with so many pieces!

I love this little quilt! I didn't realize the orange had sheep until I read your labels - too funny! I'm sure you could find a home for it somewhere....

PS I love that you called it "Sheep on Safari" - how could you not just love this!!! If you really don't like that orange fabric I'd be happy to take it off your hands...

I love your miniature quilt! I have chosen orange as my third color. I think that it really adds a little punch to the B & W. Great job! Can't wait to see your bed quilt and welcome aboard!!
