Remember these blocks?

These, with many more blocks, are what they have become:

a big, colorful quilt top.  The scrap pile seems no smaller ~ sigh ~  Most points matched up perfectly which made me happy.  What do you think about using black in a quilt?  I think it makes the colors pop!  Now on to another project....

  1. Oh my gosh! That's so beautiful, Charlotte! I like the black in there. It makes the quilt look like a stained glass window. You did a wonderful job on this.

  2. I love this quilt. The black really looks great, it reminds me of an Amish quilt with flair!
    My mother was working on these same blocks, but she didn't have a matching coordinating color like the black in yours. I must do something with them!

  3. This quilt reminds me of a Stained Glass Window. It is very beautiful. I really like how the center color pulls it all together. I love the color black. It goes so well with all the other scrappy colors.

  12. I'm not a black fan, but WOW, this quilt really comes alive with color. Several comments on stain glass and that is exactly what it looks like. Beautiful work!
