Default 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.

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!
