Black and White and Love All Over

My niece asked for a black and white quilt with red for her couch.  I had a collection of black and white FQ I've had for some time and knew they would be perfect.

It's tough to get a good shot of the full quilt.

I cut the FQs into 10.5" x 5.5" rectangles and pieced three columns then cut 4" sashing strips and 4" for the borders in white.
Then I sprinkled free cut hearts down the middle and topstitched them down.

It is so fun to imagine a design and then see it come to life.  Some overall quilting and binding and one Black and White and Love All Over lap quilt for Denae.


  1. That's so cute! I love the red hearts.

  2. Love it! The red hearts just pop off of the black and white.

  3. I bet your niece loved her new quilt. Those hearts add just the right amount of red to it.
