Playtime: BLACK

Maybe it was the colors of Africa... Maybe it was just my brain thinking again... But, BLACK is on my thoughts... We've looked at other colors, and lights, now how about BLACK?

Have you made a quilt with black?

Some of My favorite quilts I've made have included black... Time to push the envelope a bit and see what to do with black... Feel free to PLAY and POST along your experiments with Black!

Happy New Year!

I've used black in my crazy quilting projects. It makes the colored squares just "POP"!! My friend took vintage Grandmother's Fan blocks and placed them on black and it was awesome! The past couple of years I've been collecting black and white fabrics to use in a quilt and the color that I will add for pizzazz is a turgoise that I would call Columbia Blue. It's on the "to do" list for this coming year.......along with a whole lot of other stuff. LOL!

I like black in almost any quantity in a quilt.
Did you buy any african fabrics?

It's funny you would talk about black quilts. I just bought a quilt book because of it's beautiful cover. I never do that. On the cover is a lovely black quilt, The book is "Quilting in Black & White" by Leisure Arts
