    This technique is so much fun--so liberating. :D I can do whatever I want...and figure out how to get it all together later. The fabrics Marcia sent are making it an even more joyful adventure.:D

    I've made many since the last laying-out-of-the-blocks, so that may be a good idea to tackle on the weekend. Maybe there are enough! Nah. :lol:

    Hey this is going to be fun to watch and see how you put them all together. I like the creative way of making quilts. It is liberating.

    Karla, we can feel your happy vibes just oozing out of the picture, I share your delight at the liberation of just doing what you feel like, that's what I am doing with my scrappy too :D :D :D

    Thanks, everyone.
    sewjoyce--I vary everything. :roll: Some 4 patches are from 1.5" strips, some are from 2" ones.

    Janstar--I call it Black and White Splash... and there's no pattern--as Yvonne (on the board) explained to me--it's more a technique. It's from the book called "Magical Four-Patch and Nine-Patch Quilts" by Yvonne Porcella.

    I've added lots more than patches... I've made some log cabins and other stuff... it's going to be..ummm..interesting. :wink: :roll: :lol: :shock:

    If you do a search for "Black and White" you'll find the post where I asked to see quilts made with these fabrics--and you'll see Yvonne's there. I think it's on page 2.

    Oh, Yvonne--it's a good thing I have that book for a bit because I read it again and can now asnwer Kennedy's question: "How are you going to sew it together?" Now I remember--I need to sew everything into bigger blocks--rectangles and strips, etc. Whew. Glad I double checked! Two of those new funky squares are from the book.

    Let me know if you need the book back! If I copied one page--I'd probably do okay getting it together. :wink:

    Yes, Karla. You need to sew the little blocks into a bigger blocks and then add some more coping strips and then sew things into bigger blocks. Yep! You've got the idea.

    No hurry on the book, Karla. I've got to make my daughters magnolia quilt yet. I just can't decide on a pattern for it. Meanwhile I'll enjoy watching your quilt grow.

    This looks like fun. I've been buying black and white FQs and fabrics for several years and haven't made THE quilt yet. I'm intrigued with what you're doing. Hurry up so we can see the result!

    Well-JoanneS--I just happen to sew a few pieces together last night. It's kind of baffling to know where to begin, but I felt a need to get something together. I can see I'll want lots of strips. :D
