Black is Best!


I just love black-and-white. (Did you know every cat I have ever owned has been black and white?)

I wrote the other day that a white binding would have worked, but I was wrong. A white binding would have let the design flow right out. Those black triangles would have just been floating away. The black binding contains the design and because it is the same black-and-colors as the black triangles, that idea is repeated and carries all around the quilt.

Love, love, love this!

The Waltzing Matilda quilt has been delivered to Megan and she promises a full report shortly - she's had a couple of those workdays-from-hell-on-steroids and she needs to get all that stuff settled first. We all know what those are like. She did tell me that the quilt was "a delightful pick me up" and that it had been "cuddled and admired," which is good enough to hold me until she's ready.

Once again you are spot on. No wonder we all come to you for our "lessons"
For a "simple" pattern/block the quilt is spectacular. Thank you for sharing so we all can learn

The binding is perfectly melded with the rest of the quilt.
