Finally a month to play with the black scraps. I admit, until a few years ago I never put black into my quilts. Now I've made a few with the black and they really do make the bright colors pop. Once I saw that amazing cat with those gorgeous blue eye's on Angela's blog I could not wait to pull some black and grey out to make some snails trail blocks for my RSC quilt. I decided to do one in greys and blacks and one with fun prints with a very light grey. I think it will add a fun touch with all the other blocks I have been making. Those cats are on the back of Aidan's Monster quilt and the dots have been used for a backing of a graduation quilt for my niece Mindy. I love the memories of quilts you get when you pull through the scraps and remember where you have used them.
I think I need to pull out my Boo wall hanging and try and get that hand quilted this month with a nice black spider and spider web attached. That counts as black..... right?
Head on over and check out SoScrappy's blog on Saturday and see what other fun black creations are being worked on.
