At last!

At long last I've started my B&W challenge project. After a lot of web surfing, magazine browsing and doodleing, and considering my limited stash of black and white fabrics I've decided on a wonky block format for a lap quilt / living room throw. One evening earlier this week I quickly pieced together seven of the centre panels. I have to say that this is a quick and economical block to use us a limited selection of fabrics for a decent sized top. Once the black sashing is added to each centre panel and the blocks squared up to 12.5" the minimum sized quilt will be about 36" x 48" (3x4 blocks). Above are half the blocks pieced together ready for batting/backing, as I propose to 'quilt as you go' each half of the top, but need to firstly use some of the remaining fabrics for a 'coin' stirp across the backing panel - just to zest it up a bit.
Here are the other six blocks ready to be sashed up.
