    Yvonne posted a quilt that inspired me, then loaned me the book showing the technique AND sent some fabric. Marcia sent more fabric and my Black & White Splash was born. It's 49"x63.5". No borders will be added.

    This was fun one. :D

    Karla,
    Your quilt looks so carefree! Well, done!! You are absolutely right. This is a very fun method to build a quilt. You're never real sure how it's going to finish. :lol: Surprises abound!
    Spectacular job!

    Oh my goodness Karla, this is a wonderful quilt! I absolutely love it!! What is the book, please? I am going to have to buy it and make a quilt like that for myself. (Great, I can see everything I'm working on heading straight to the UFO pile. :lol: )

    Tiffany--here's a link to the book on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Magical-Four-P...9729051&sr=8-3

    And here's Yvonne's quilt: http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/15/14992.page

    The book has only small projects-more wall hanging size. Yvonne explained to me it's a technique, not a pattern. I made way more stuff than just 4 and 9 patches--and I made a great variety of sizes. :wink: That made it tricky to get together--but that was part of the fun.

    I recently found another book with a similar technique...but I can't find the book I saw it... I'll PM you if I come across it again. Yvonne--do you still have the email where I sent the title to you?

    Is this the one your talking about?
    "Beyond the Block" by Linda K Johnson and Jane K Wells

    You found it on Connecting Threads and I've seen it on Amazon. It's on my wish list there.
