    Black and white and red all over? EASY quilt!

    Fabrics - started with a Missouri Quilt Co Deal of the Day - a 30-piece layer cake of Vivaldi. Added the jelly roll of the same line and the backing fabric of one of them.

    Pattern - searched for "layer cake and jelly roll" and found it. Basically you cut the layer cake in half and put strips on each side. You did trim it down - maybe 8.5"? - to make it square. Alternate block directions and you've got it.

    Borders - none. This may be my first borderless quilt, but it works.

    Binding - backing brought over

    Quilted - FMQ on my domestic machine. It's definately a beginner job, but only you know and I know you won't tell!

    testing pics to see if they attach small again - you can click on them to make them larger, but I haven't had them do this before.

    I love the fabrics you chose. I also like it without a border. It seems to speak clearly without one!! Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    That is just a great color combination. That backing fabric is awesome. Most people don't know the difference between a beginners quilting and an experienced quilter's. They look at the overall beauty of the quilt. And this sure is beautiful

    I have never had to click on the small picture to make it bigger before either. That just started happening yesterday. What gives?

    Your quilt is lovely,the back is a very nice fabric that would make a wonderful S&W Kaleidoscope. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know why the pics are small and clickable - perhaps to save space or whatever you call it? I'm not a fan - takes longer to browse through.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    very cute pattern - I never would have guessed that it started with a layer cake and a jelly roll. I'll have to keep that in mind for other projects!

    It's a FABULOUS quilt! I love, love, love the fabric & would love to know where you found the pattern (yes, I'm so dumb I have to have a pattern to look at... LOL!). You did a great job on this little (how large is it?) beauty!
