    arrow quilt

    this is the first quilt that i have finished - from conception to binding! i have more tops and their bottoms, but i will wait to share them until they are complete.

    only black and white and white and black fabrics were used. i didn't use anything that came off as gray, even though the photo shows some that do. the border is similar to a "piano key" design, but the "keys" are not even. i used scraps from the quilt for them.

    even though i am very proud of my quilt, i realize that their are "issues". the biggest problem is that i need to improve my accuracy in not only cutting but sewing as well. hopefully that will come with time.

    this quilt was long-armed machine quilted by lily lucier in eastern north carolina.

    Two thumbs up ... color and pattern are terrific together!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I really like your black and white quilt! I like the pattern and your fabrics. Isn't it great that even while learning from our beginning pieces we have a product that is beautiful and useful and loved!

    What a wonderful quilt. There are no quilt police on this board, so just sit back and enjoy quilting.

    I like your black and white quilt. I have a collection of black and white fabrics that I am just waiting for the right pattern to come along.
