Another Critter Quilt

Here's another quilt made from the colorful fat quarters of animals, bugs, toys, and polka dots. I arranged these four-patch squares so they would all track on the diagonal, also sashing the blocks and rows with black and white fabric. It's on the floor--sorry I did not put up on the design wall so it would look square!

I enjoyed working with the black and white fabrics so much that I made a small diagonal strippy wall quilt. A little red inner border really gave it a more dramatic look. I've been gathering black/white fabrics but rarely use them for fear there won't be a huge stack of them in my fabric stash. Like a security blanket. I finished the edges with a facing--my favorite finishing method.
