Back to working on quilts this week, I got a couple things accomplished. First, I finished the binding on the Christmas whirlygig quilt, so it is officially done!
I took advantage of the bright sunshine and a fresh snowfall for these pics.
The quilt really does lie flat; it's just over a snowbank and part of a buried hedge.

One more crossed off the PhD (Projects Half Done) list!
Next, I put together a black and white (and a wee bit of red) quilt top.
I talked about my fondness for black and white quilts and gave a hint of this one in the previous post.
This top went together fast, after I got done fussing with the layout. The pattern is Perfect Ten by Swirly Girls Design, which calls for 10 fat quarters. I had nine, plus some great scraps from Jenny, so I mixed those in too, including the one black/white/red piece. It was too perfect not to!
This quilt may be a little busy, but I really like it. It still needs a border, and I have no idea what I'm going to do there yet. Suggestions?
