I have been wanting to make a Black & White quilt for years and have slowly been collecting interesting pieces here and there. One never really knows how much Black & White fabric they need for a quilt, so I just continued to collect it...until I finally had all of this.
A few weeks ago, I finally made my mind up and decided to make Elizabeth Hartman's "Snapshots" quilt from her book The Practical Guide to Patchwork.
I started cutting strips of fabric, until I sort of said to myself that I had enough. Let me tell you...it didn't make a dent in the above stash. I way OVER-estimated how much fabric I would need to buy. I guess I'll be able to make multiple Black & White quilts :-)
During the STLMQG Sew-In, I began sewing the strips together into groupings and then subcut them accordingly. By the end of the day, I was able to finally piecing 1 block together.
They have gone together very quickly and since then, I have pieced 20 blocks and run out of strips to sew together. So I have a decision to make, is 20 enough?? I'll have to lay it out and see if I want to break out the rotary cutter and start cutting strips again.
In the meantime, here is what they look like:
Ladies (you know who you are) Hands off....hehehehe
