I have not been playing catch up on this blog as I had intended, so here's the latest quilt instead. Just finished piecing this top to the size of a baby quilt (currently 36" square). Babies like high contrast, so I figured this would be a good design. I plan to add borders -- I think a very narrow black followed by a larger white & black (lots of white, a very little black) and an occasional wonky red diamond. I made 2-1/2 blocks of this several years ago, but once I decided to finish it, it was very quick.


The back will be fun -- red, white and black elephants! Stay tuned.

This is great! I love the b&w with the red, and I really like the wonky. Your elephants on the back look perfect to me. They're so cute, and what a great place to put them. Fun on both sides of the quilt!
