Black and White

I had a HUGE pile of black and white scraps that I wanted to get rid of and use up. I admit that I wanted something quick and speedy and the pattern by Me and My Sister Designs fits the bill. The pattern is called L7. It was relaxing making this quilt or should I say quilts as I had enough to make two. 

The first one I made into the larger quilt as depicted on the pattern cover.  I decided on a strong black border with this one that draws the eye into the pieces in the quilt. There are some pretty neat pieces of fabric in this quilt too.  Like little birds, raindrops to name a few. 

The second one is a baby quilt size.  I found some great minky in a chevron pattern of black and white that I will use for the back of this quilt. It will be fabulous.  I'm not sure what I like better the backing fabric or the outer border of diagonal black and white candy cane stripes.  

The final quilt is also a baby quilt using the left over block but this time I used a border fabric that has a bit of red mixed with black and white. I'm thinking that a red minky or flannel will suit this quilt very nicely along with a red solid binding.
