    Well, I didn't think I would be able to get this done in time for the fair in two weeks, but with this time off from work, I finally have time to work on this stuff!

    This is my black and white block exchange top from a coupe of months ago. I will put two more borders on the outside, in black white and red fabrics from my log cabin quilt. I'm going to embroider each person's name and location on the back vis-a-vis each person's block.

    ETA:
    Not sure why my pics didn't attatch the first time, lets try this again.

    Ok, this isn't working. :roll: Give me a minute

    That's really beautiful Melanie! And I love the original setting for the blocks (my DH would love it too, he likes things to be a little "off" or asymmetrical!)

    I really like the way you set your blocks....and the red just sets them off beautifully. Nice job.

    My plan was to have them tilting in different directions, but I didn't think far enough ahead when I was sewing them. I figured it out when I laid them out together, and then I didn't feel like taking everything apart again. I didn't use a pattern for these so I was kind of guessing and trimming all the way :mrgreen:

    I love that setting. The stars in the corners were a good idea, and the red off-kilters. It makes the quilt really interesting to the eye.

    I like the skewed red around the B&W blocks. It turned out very nice! I'm happy to see one of my blocks in your quilt - the Tame Zebras in one of the corners. I've heard that black and white is good for NEW babies eyes, because they can see the contrast better than they can see pastel colors. Your black and white quiltS (plural!) are just the ticket!

    That is wonderful. I love the way you set the blocks. I would have never thought of that. I really like the way it looks. Great job.

    I have 4 young girls who come to my house each Wednesday night while their daddys have a men's meeting at the church. Just this past one week, one of them mentioned she'd like to do a black and white one. I know she will love this! I do too!
