    I just finished this almost black and white strip quilt for my neice and her new husband. I've wanted to make a strip quilt for a long time and finally got up the nerve to try it. The little piece of red in the binding was my neighbor's idea. I'm going to make another out of the extra 3" strips I cut for this quilt, I hadn't a clue of how many to cut so I just cut LOTS. It went together very fast, two days.

    oooh, I really like your quilt! I'm a big fan of black and whites! And I do like the touch of red in the binding.

    How did you figure the length and placement of each strip Was there a pattern of sorts to follow? I love the looks of your quilt and think it is really sharp looking! Carol

    Thanks for the nice comments ladies. There is no reason for the red in the binding except that I told my neighbor the quilt is almost black and white because in a few of the fabrics the white is whiter than other pieces. She said I should make the "Almost" more obvious.
    I had no pattern to the strips, just tried for various lengths and values.

    I think the red adds some humor and a quirkiness I'm in synch with:> Love it.

    I love your quilt. Black and white is so striking and when you give a hint of red it's perfection. Great quilt and thanks for sharing.

    They will love it. The red is good so you can tell which side of the bed it goes on. You have a winner.
