Black + White Quilt {front}, originally uploaded by emerald lane.

I’ve been working away at this quilt since the Christmas holiday. I’m almost done quilting the layers together. I’m using my machine to create concentric rectangles inside the white rectangles. I’m not sure if I’m going to quilt on the black fabric or not. What do you think? Will it work if I don’t? I’m pretty sure I’ll use the black fabric for the binding.

I really want to try free-motion quilting next. I found this blog that has a great video tutorial on free-motion quilting. There are actually many tutorials on this blog that I will be referring to during my quilt making. Quilting is something I’ve wanted to do, but just haven’t made the time for. I hope to make a few this year.
