Hello all -
My wife and I have a store-bought quilt on our bed. You all know how that goes. We've made dozens of quilts but it seems our bed is always at the bottom of the list. Well, now the one we're using is starting to literally fall apart. We've decided we want to use our (considerable) collection of black and white fabrics to make the quilt. This only needs to be a utility quilt, but we would like it to at least look nice - it just doesn't need to be a magnum opus. We've used YBR several times and like how it turns out, but we would like something different. The Turning Twenty quilts don't really speak to us. We thought about a sampler, but not sure we can find enough blocks within our skill level for a king-size quilt. We have several books and patterns, but we're having a hard time imagining them in black and white. We could add a color or two into the mix if it would help. We both love turquoise/teal/aqua, so that would probably be the add in.
Does anyone have any suggestions for us? This really shouldn't be this difficult. I'm starting to understand why we don't have a quilt that we made on our bed.
