What a happy day it was in the 1950's when I learned about Beatniks and wearing black!! I love wearing black!! But somehow I never thought of black as a color for quilts, until last spring when Victoria began her color challenges. Eleven of my sixteen blocks ended up with black in them. I never would have imagined that result of the color challenges.
I wish I had taken pictures as the project evolved - I love it when others do this. I sewed black and white strips around the four 5" blocks, then sewed the blocks together and then started cutting the new big block into strips which I rearranged and sewed into a new big block. Finally I made two diagonal cuts and rearranged the pieces again. I am pretty satisfied with the result, though again, I have not ventured into making fabric ala Victoria.

Show me your Blacks! ;-)
Wow! Love how your African fabrics look after the transformation. Those diagonal cuts are great. And your dots are divine!
These African fabrics look great chopped up and re-sewn. Love the dots too, and the zigzags.
