This is my contribution to the Black and White Challenge.  As with most of my quilts, it grew like Topsey.  The three leaf panels are my very first lino prints!

Hopefuly this detail shot will show the small continuous leaf pattern I used to quilt the back ground with.  I hope you like it!

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.
