Backing the BW Slashed Squares

I'm always amazed by the generosity of quilt bloggers, but I know I shouldn't be. One of my readers, Gail, asked if I needed some black and white fabrics, as she had more than enough.  I said "Sure!"


Even so, I was stunned when UPS delivered an enormous box filled with eight pounds of fabric to my door. Gail, you really rock!






There was a lot of truly great stuff in that big box. I'll be using most of it in the pieced backing of the black and white Slashed Squares quilt. I know I want to use the mini SS blocks on the backing too, so it will be fun to play with these different elements and see how they work out.

Lucky you. Faith in humanity restored. Would this work with using only two fabrics.

OMG, What a great Pay it Forward act of generosity. Sure wish I knew someone like that. Have fun playing around, which I know you will.
