Black and white scrappy boxes



Had some time today to do a little work - didn't want to get into anything which took too much time, so I browsed through one of my stacks of stuff and found these blocks and the backing I was intending to use for this quilt - I put the blocks together into a top (the blocks themselves were finished some time ago), about 40" square or so, and attached the last few strips to the backing. The black and white fabrics came from my stash but the other pieces - the four-patches in the centres of the framed four-patches and the strips for the backing - all came from the scrap basket (or, as the case may be, scrap shoebox). Who knows, at some point I may actually put the quilt together and quilt it!

What a busy month you have had. Both the quilts look great, and every little bit of time helps (none of it is ever spare):)

Those boxes are great! I really like the effect of so many different colors all tied together. Pattern looks pretty easy. Maybe even I could do it. LOL

Oh Kate, have you not done the BQL challenge this month? I finished mine only last night (and it isn't even quilted). Sorry I can't comment on your lovely blocks as the photo is not downloaded from here. I'll visit your blog again from home tonight!

It's always a great feeling to empty the scrap box a bit. Both look fab!

The black and white lifts the scraps into something quite sophisticated!
