    Black & White Baby Quilt

    My 4-week-old granddaughter is mesmerized by anything black and white, so my daughter asked me to make a B&W quilt for her. Using fabrics from my stash, I thought I'd use the no-diamonds method for baby blocks but soon ran out of the fabric I used for the tops of the blocks and decided I would use them as a center medallion and just add borders all around until it got big enough. It ended up at 44" x 44". Backing is a black and white jungle animals print.

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Beautiful job! Love the tumbling blocks in the middle and the mix of the different fabrics. In 1971 when I had my baby I taped black/white pictures in her bassinet. (Had no money). I read back then that black/white stimulates a baby's brain. Your grandbaby will love it!

    Wonderful black and white quilt. I especially like the way the stripe you used for the binding finishes off the top. Great job!

    Beautiful quilt. Yes, newborn babies eyes are blurry at first so high contrast such as black and white will get them to focus better.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I love this very graphic quilt. It's perfect for a little Princess. Striped bindings are my favorite; especially if they are on the diagonal.

    Almost forgot - congrats on the new Grand!

    Love it! My DS was deeply attached to a Dalmation Lovie. The black and white was great contrast for those infant eyes. Great idea, so much better than soft pastels that they quickly grow out of.
