Black and White Finish


IMG_2650Yesterday I finished the Black and White Stars Baby Quilt.  This was a quick, spontaneous little quilt just because I came across that pile of fabrics in my stash.  I liked making the wonky stars enough that I may do another project.


The binding is a little different:  I matched it to to value of the quilt.  Usually, I would contrast it to act as a frame, but I didn’t want any more busy-ness on this one.


I used a total of eight different black and white prints (six on the front, plus two additional on the back), as well as black and white Kona solid.

I tried a new (to me) batting.  It is thicker and heavier than Warm and White.


It was not more trouble to sandwich or quilt, but I do think it shows off the quilting a little better.

Hope you’ve had some great finishes lately.

I’m linking up to Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and to Let’s Make Baby Quilts at Michelle’s Romantic Tangle.
