Black and White sophistication or just a great combo?

Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks has set up this great Blog Hop to start off the year. 



I decided to use one of my test quilt tops for my entry. The quilt pattern I am using is called Modern Churn and was designed by Tammy of Tamarinis Quilts (here). She has kindly offered a paper copy of the pattern to be given out to someone who leaves a comment on this post. I will draw the winners name at noon on Friday January 25th. 

I did straight line quilting to finish this off. My stash of black with white and white with black is fairly extensive so used Kona Black for my background and a selection of white with black prints for my "churns"



My finished quilt is a good size. Hubby had to stretch to hold it off the ground.

Please make sure you visit the other bloggers on this hop to see what they have created for the Black and White Blog Hop. And remember to leave a comment if you want to be in the draw for the paper copy of the pattern. Piecefully, Joanne
