    I have started to make these for friends, here is one in the works. I have been using various black and white fabrics I've been collecting.




    Here it is finished, turned out a little wonky, but I still like it:

    Very striking! Are the initials for your friends? I love how you've used black and white fabrics. I collect those too!

    VERY NICE and very creative. It may look simple but I bet it's not.

    Thanks! The initials are for friends, they are somewhere around 3 in. squares each initial. I also did one for my friend Liz, so obviously short names are pretty easy to do, too. I love love the black and whites, but wasn't coming up with a pattern that worked, so these easy wall hangings were a go! :D

    Hey, thanks! This is an older Michael Miller fabric and I got it on Ebay. There is actually an auction going on right now, but other than that, not really sure where to get it! :D I'd love to see anyone else's black and white quilts! They are some of my favorites!
