    I really like them! It is neat how they are a positve and negative image of each other in B&W.

    I like it. I've done a couple of black and white with red quilts and love that combination. Not sure about what cornerstones would look best with yours though.

    Those are nice. How about solid black cornerstones?

    Your blocks are beautiful, can't wait to see the finished quilt. I didn't use corner stones on the ones i made. I have done 2 of them and love, love, love the black and white. Starting a charity quilt using black and white samples i got. Don't know if i will use red in this one or not, none of the samples have red.

    i woke up this morning and my first thought was those blocks! first church and then exercises for the healing back and THEN its block day! LOL this is going to be fun! i think i will do solid black cornerstones, its going to get pretty busy as it goes along! i will keep you posted and keep pics going. i can see it in my minds eye when its done but that minds eye has a tendency to fool you once in a while! thanks much guys!! the feedback is great!

    This will be a fun one to work on ... looking good with only two blocks.

    Black as Phannie suggested could be nice .... or no cornerstones, just the red sashing.

    Plus ... have you considered no sashing? if you alternated the positive/negatives, you'd get a really nice look too!

    Love them! The touch of red really makes the black and white stand out more, I think.

    Love the black and white churn dash blocks. The red in the blocks and the sashing really stand out and make the blocks pop. I agree that "IF" you do cornerstones that you use black. Can't wait to see more blocks.
