    Black and White Splash and a lil extra

    When I made a pattern I am often curious about using other colors for it. So, after using the Depression Block pattern for the batik Earth and Ocean, I wanted to try using black/whites and color. I used 4" blocks I had cut already. I like it but it took a long time to construct. It's 37".

    Then I played with some extras and made the little 12.5" one. I love that. Could be a sort of mug rug for a teacher's desk so papers don't get damp from lunch. But I'm calling it "Inference" and will see if my first graders can figure out why. ;-) It will hang in our classroom.

    I like this pattern because it's so easy to quilt! Straight lines all the way.

    Next is another Triple Irish Chain... from the same fabric line I made the last one, except one batik. lol All the strips are cut. Cant wait to get more done on that. It's a keeper!

    Your students will have a great intro to geometry, art, Amercan history, crafts and I'm sure a few more subjects just by hanging that in your classroom......

    Yes! I read them picture books on quilting--the latest was "Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt." They help me with math--(5th graders did that more than first graders). I talk to them about how much math is in a quilt--and tell them how it used both sides of my brain. They even get to play with leftover hst to create patterns. :-)

    I really like the effect that the b&w adds to color. great job.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    that's great! I love it. I love this pattern. I would like to try it. I'm so glad that you are going to hang in the classroom. When I was in school, it was always interesting that the teacher would put a personal touch in the classroom of something she made. I've always asked about it. This really cool and I think your students will appreciate it.

    Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. The use of black/white and bright colors is wonderful.
