    My first black and white....I'm hooked!

    I've been wanting to do a black and white quilt forever and have been collecting b/w prints....my girlfriend finally convinced me to "just do it, already!" and I'm so glad she did! This is called Dancing Stars - a Cozy Strip Club pattern ..... it was fun and a success as I have two daughters who both say they'd gladly find a home for it.

    Very pretty. Well done.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    That looks great. It also looks like the block we are doing for the mystery train. Now I see how the block would look as a full quilt and I like it.

    You have to make another one just for your second DD, afterall it is too beautiful not to share. Love the added red and gold to spice up the B&W.

    Don't think I have ever seen a b&w with 2 colors added. I really like it. Great job.
