Last Black Saturday
The month of October's color for RSC13 was Black/Grey and I really didn't want to add that to my blocks in progress as I plan to use black as sashings. corner stones, or setting triangles. Then I remembered.....
I had been cutting 'bricks' each month and would need the 'stepping stone' (4-patches) which I wanted to use black and muslin. So I pulled different blacks with some sort of tonal grey in them - some leaf, some dots, some vines, some that look like rain splash. So starting early this morning I whipped up 110 stones.
I have gotten all the rows stitched and tomorrow I will put them into a flimsie. This is a free pattern on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville - called bricks and stepping stones.
I will be linking up over at SoScrappy - check out what other's have done with black/grey for the month.
