Black and White

Anyone who pops by regularly will remember the row of kitties that I made recently for a row robin swap. Well it's my turn now to work on my first row for someone else.

I'm working on Susan's row and she has decided on a black and white, any block pattern goes. I went and raided my stash for black and white fabrics in all their variations and my immediate thought was heck I'm going to need to go shopping.

But I'm proud to say that a little while later I remembered that one of the main reasons I wanted to join this robin was to try and help me in my long term goal of reducing my stash of fabric so I just got stuck in and yes I had more than enough already to make my five blocks for the row :)

Amish Diamond

Nine Patch Variation

Ohio Star

Log Cabin

Spinning Four Patch

I decided to stick to relatively simple block patterns as I thought this would suit the colour scheme. Here is a picture of my row added to Susan's original row. (Susan's row on top)

What a great quilt she will have at the end. I'm looking forward to getting the next one to work on too. I wonder what it will be......

What an interesting and effective quilt it is growing into. I'm very interested to see what is happening with it. Bravo on your contribution!

what a wonderfully effective quilt she'll have at the end -- little sense of "rows" but an all over.

I really like the nine patch variation you made -- and the fact you used what you had around the for blocks :-)

That is going to be a great looking quilt!

Oh I like how that is looking so far. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the row quilts.

I especially like the zebra fabric. This is going to be a stunning quilt. Looking forward to seeing what other rows you'll be doing

Great row! I can't get over how elegant this black and white colour combination is!

these look great. and your piecing is so good - all those sharp points. I agree with everyone else the blak and white is so effective
