Guess who else is going with black & white with mostly red accents? - me! Last year, 2 girls made the most striking quilts in black & white. My background was white, last year, so now it's black w/a small light flick in it. There are 3 fabrics in this Sampler list stated as background.( It says 1/2 yd. white Polka Dot, 1/2 yd. white Mini Dot & 2 yds. Kona Snow solid). I bought 3 blacks that were from a line, with gradiation in the "flick size. Here we go!
