My nephew C and his fiance K requested a black and gray quilt with a lot of white. As I was looking at black and white quilts online, I found a darling one made by Emily at Simple Girl, Simple Life. She shared the simple instructions and this was an easy quilt to make.
I selected twelve black and white fabrics and paired them with Kona White. Each fabric was cut into eight 5 inch squares. I sewed three blocks at a time to keep the fabrics evenly distributed.
Then I placed them on the design wall.
I added the sashing and borders to finish up the top.
I loaded the long arm with some gray minky and quilted it with spirals.
It is always fun to take the quilt off the frames.
I love seeing the quilting on minky.
I added solid black for the binding. It gives the quilt a nice frame.
My sweet husband held it up for me outside to take a picture.
I love how it turned out.
I told them that if they didn't like it, I would be happy to keep it. ;)
But the good news is that they loved it!
On a personal note, school has started for my children and we are settling into our new routine. I was able to work in some time for blogging today. Even though I haven't been blogging, I have still been sewing. I have finished all the wedding quilts and a few more. So I have lots to share if I can keep up with the computer time. I hope you are all doing well!
