Missed May

Well I can't believe that I haven't posted since the month of April. Life has just kept me busy. Plus I like to look around at all the many other quilting blogs so much that I forget about mine. Summer is here so I am going to be busy with grand kids and just trying to get outside more. I will try to save a little bit of time for sewing. I am going to my favorite quilt shop this next week for a machine quilting class. I hope I will like it.....I have tried one time to do some machine quilting on my bernina machine but I just couldn't get it......so I am hoping this class with help me. I have alot of table runners and toppers that I would like to get quilted.

I saw a pattern in one of my many quilt magazine for a quilt that was done in black and white colors. I have never thought I would like just a black and white quilt......but....now that is all I can seem to think about it.
Here are a few blocks that I have done....oh and I am going to put a little bit of other color in it like red or maybe some green...haven't decided on that yet.

With the left over 2 1/2 inch squares I made some nine patches.......ideas for another black and white quilt.

This is also another idea I would like to try in black and white.

Ok so it's off to hunt for more black and white fabric...that is the fun part...I will keep you updated on the hunt.
I hope everyone has a great quilting day.
