Black & White Challenge update

All twelve blocks have been completed - I can't believe how quickly they went together. Do I add sashing (plain black or something else?) What do you think?


PS Sorry for the quality of the photo - because of the building work I am very restricted to wall/floor space. I was standing on the furniture to take this shot and couldn't keep my balance very well!


  1. These look great!! I like the way the yellow-orange flows from one square to the next, so I probably wouldn't use sashing. An easy way to test out the effect, though, is to lay a piece of black fabric on the floor, and then place the blocks a bit apart from each other so the black shows through. I really like the fabrics!

  2. Love it Ros and I am inclined to agree with Jean. I was certainly going to suggest trying it on black fabric to gauge the effect.

  3. Hi Ros,
    Make it three. I don't think you need sashing either. I love the visual connection among the yellow-orange cut-throughs. Are you thinking of any borders?
    Kind regards,

  4. Had you considered a neutral rather than black for the sashings? You know, the combination of black and white that results in gray. A neutral would make that yellow really sing.

  5. It's going to be a stunner Ros, and I think that black would really pull it all together,


  6. The blocks are beautiful Rosa!

  7. Hi Ros, as one of my favourite people, I have nominated you for a SUNSHINE AWARD! Pop to my blog if you need further details! xxx

  8. Looking good just as it is Ros. It is your decision in the end though!!!!

  9. Ohh what a lovely colourful fabricky background.
    Did you intend for the orange to meet one another? It's very clever the way that happens. Yes I too place blocks on a background with space inbetween to get the effect. Be interesting to see what you choose, I think it will look nice whatever you choose.
