Another PhD!

One more flimsy to add to the list, and for me a complete change of colour choices :-)

Totally out of my comfort zone, but I thought it was time I tried my hand at a Black and White quilt, and this is the result.  I've been piecing it quietly over the last few weeks, fitting it in as and when between other projects and now it's ready for backing and quilting.

I haven't changed my allegiance to Reproduction fabrics though , how could I after seeing what Kathie has been making! I am a great fan of Kathie's work, and she has been very kind and helpful to me in the past.  It's thanks to Kathie that my Tumbler quilts (here)  were made and she was also a great help when I made my Civil War Diary blocks , which are still waiting to be sashed :-)

I just love this new quilt and have watched it coming together for days, so what else to do but make a few blocks to try

I think I'll carry on with the Courthouse Steps quilt  and keep the Barbara Brackman Civil War blocks for another time.  The blocks are getting more complicated as the weeks go on and really need to be paper pieced for complete accuracy, and as PP and I do not get along at all, it's best to admit this now rather than end up with more orphan blocks - maybe a bit later I'll feel differently.

Another reason is that, having seen the old post about my CWD blocks, guilt has reared its ugly head so maybe I should do something about these instead of  starting yet another new quilt :-)
