    Ok so awhile back I posted a pic of the black and white quilt I'm working on for my Aunt Gracie, well it's still not completely finished and I have to have the top done by tomorrow night!!! So I'm posting where I'm at now in hopes that keeping everyone here updated will help keep me on track :oops: :XD:

    Whenever my eyes couldn't focus from to much black and white I'd work on this baby quilt, it's all done except for binding now. It marks the first foray into FMQ for me, I figure it's acceptable :thumbup:

    you can't really tell but there are only 2 long seems left and the boarder before this is an official top! Just need to do it in one day :XD:

    How can black and white be so stunning without any other colors. But it is.

    Love the black and white one but can see why your eyes would go crazy and you would need a break, I really like both quilts

    I don't think it's the black and white by itself, just that combined with a crap ton of seem matching lol

    no! I'd love to keep it but, I'm only gifting the work. My Aunt paid for the fabric for the top and batting and is getting the backing when she gets to town this weekend.

    She got the fabric and gave me free range to make whatever design I wanted with it her exact words were "surprise me" Hopefully this will be a good surprise!
