black and white on the wall

Back when I was working on those two quilts for Lotta Jansdotter’s new lines, I was trying to come up with an idea for her fun black and white collection, Sylvia. I briefly considered making up another of my Converging Corners quilts, and even made up several blocks, but then realized that I wouldn’t actually have enough time to complete all the blocks.

Not wanting them to go to waste though, I grabbed four of the blocks I had made and turned them into this fun mini quilt/wall hanging.

The open space in each block gave me an opportunity to play around with the quilting a bit (and since it’s a mini, it was actually doable!). I went with this fun design in the open spaces, along with a diamond shape through the printed portion.

(love how it looks on the black on the backing!)

I don’t use a lot of black and white prints typically, but I decided to go all black and white with this one, finishing the backing with my favorite bird print from Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park line. I didn’t have enough of either color for a full backing, but no matter, I think the combo is kind of fun! I considered adding a pop of color in the binding, but couldn’t decide on one, so opted for the dark gray instead.

I’ve added a hanging pocket in each corner, so this is all ready to decorate a wall! Do you have a wall needing some art? This mini is listed in the shop in case you do!
