    My Black/White OpArt quilt

    One of my grandson (I have 12) likes black/white and wears a lot of black. I made him a quilt when he graduated high school and just got a chance to photograph it. Sorry it's on the bed sideways. It's a moebius strip center. The flower border underneath is another quilt entirely not part of the Moebius Strip Quilt. The wild print showing at the edge of the quilt to the right is the back of the quilt. I told him he couldn't be depressed all the time so he could turn the quilt over occasionally.

    If you ever want to go stark staring insane, try matching up the outer border fabric so it is perfectly matched at every corner.

    Oh WOW! Another pattern to add to my ever expanding to-do list. Absolutely beautiful - I really like the juxtaposition of the backing fabric. If he ever tires of it (never!) put me on the rental list.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a great quilt. And kudos to you on that border. I get blurry eyed just looking at the optical illusion of it, however you could not have picked a more perfect fabric for it. Can't imagine what it was like mitering the corners on that bad boy.
