    I just finished a black and white top and it's definitely NOT what I had in mind when I started. I think I'm going to quilt it in red or lime green and see what that does. Some tween will love it.

    Update: A couple of nights after I originally posted this, I was starching and pressing my blocks (again) and stacking them in 4 stacks (a little OCD kicked in there) without realizing what I'd done, a simple shifting of how they lined up with each other blew me away! Something so simple as 'rotate' and wallah, it's a great change and happy as can be. I even made a few more to have enough since I changed the original layout. Now to get it all sewn together, borders on and quilted! WOOP WOOP !!!
    It may be a few more weeks before I post pics but wow I'm so happy with everything and how much better it looks with it's new layout!
    Thanks everyone for your awesome help and comments.

    I agree that black sashing could make all the difference in the world. Also, keep in mind that if black and white are not your favorite colors, then it may not look appealing to you at this stage. I've made a few quilts that simply weren't my color choices and I wasn't fond of them most of the time. Good luck and I'm sure whatever you make, your son will appreciate it and you.
    Go forth and sew!
