    First 2 blocks WIP "Candy Store"

    I love this quilt. It is the cover Quilt of Fons and Porter, Love of Quilting, May/June 2012.
    The designer, Jean Wells, used gray as the neutral but I'm using black. There will be a black sashing around each 16 inch block. I love scrappy quilts~the more scraps I use the more I have~ I just don't understand Thanks for looking.....

    The black really accents the other colors in your blocks making it very interesting and attractive to the viewers eye!

    Good start. I like how the black frames each block. Please post the finished quilt. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!
