It’s my day (tuesday) to participate in the Black and White Blog Hop. The challenge was to make something in black and white, with or without additional color. I’ve been so into string quilts lately, that I needed little time to come up with an idea.
Given that I was doing string blocks, it was only a matter of which way to assemble them. After some playing around with options, it finally hit me. This heart design is the perfect way to arrange string blocks for a child’s quilt. The black and white keeps the quilt design crisp and interesting, while the blue adds a focal point to the heart. I’m calling it “Some Bunny Loves You” because it has playful black and white bunnies throughout the strings. (Sorry, but I can’t recall the name of the fabric.) For those that don’t know, I have a thing for bunnies. I count them along the side of the road while driving. The best is a two or three bunny day!! Even better is a bunny quilt!
This quilt top isn’t yet quilted, but it’s all ready to go. I love the simplicity and how welcoming it feels. I will likely try another one of these, perhaps with a red or pink colored accent. However, should I keep this one for a pile of baby gifts, or donate it to charity. What a tough decision, although I rarely keep things and it’s time I get to see my things at home. I promise to share the final result when I have it quilted.
Thank you so much Carla of http://createinthesticks.blogspot.com. I never would have created this fun top without the blog hop created by you. Please check out the other talented blog hoppers using the list below. You will be amazed at the creativity from this snazzy group of sewers.
