During the Christmas holidays a couple of months ago, I started playing with my black and white scraps and decided it was time. So I made 12.5" slab blocks in black, white and grey and threw one piece of red in there for a pop of colour. I had made a few blocks when I put this project on my Q1 list for the 2017 FAL. So this is my first finish on that list!!
I quilted it with a meander with Aurifil 2600 in 50 wt.
The binding is Kona Red and I used my precious Cotton and Steel from a couple of years ago for the backing.
I put it on my bed to see how it would look on a Queen Size bed and it's perfect!
And it did get Bronx' seal of approval... more than once!
