A Wonderful Quilt Design for Black Scraps

Another Predominant Color Will be Just as Lovely!
Dig into your stash and pull out all of your colorful black prints for this stunning quilt. Choose one fabulous color for the sashing strips (or two that are closely related). Once it’s all sewn together you’ll have a one-of-a-kind quilt that will make an impact wherever it is displayed.
This is a super easy quilt to make, even for beginning quilters. Just cut 2 1/2″ squares from a variety of fabrics for the blocks and stitch them together. What a great way to use leftover black fabrics!
Two blocks combine for this quilt. They’re 16″ square once sewn together with the other blocks (16 1/2′” unfinished). Make as many blocks as you need to produce the size quilt that you want.
We love the turquoise and blue accent strips chosen by designer Cynthia Brunz of Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework. Have fun with this and select a color you love. Just about any strong color mixed with black scraps will make a stunning quilt.
This quilt will also be gorgeous made up in other colors instead of the predominant black. Put on your designer hat and make something special!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
