Black and White with Rainbow bits

I’ve completed my goal for February which was to quilt and bind this Black and White with Rainbow Bits quilt. 
Quilted with the blowing Wind pantograph by Jodi Beamish, the top thread is a black and white variegated thread called zebra.  This quilt finished at 63 by 58 inches. 
Wanting to use up fabric from my stash, I found some larger black and grey remnants to do a little back art. 
I thought this small black with rainbow dots was just right for the binding. 
Another Monthly Goal completed as I sew along with ElmStreet Quilts and participate in One Monthly Goal OMG!  Having fun.

February's Goal

I’m participating in Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and I have a quilt I’d like to finish this month. 
Inspired by a couple of quilts I saw on pinterest and needing to 'just sew', I pulled out all my two and a half inch pre-cut black and white and grey strips, along with some rainbow coloured squares and quickly whipped together this black and white stripy quilt.  I sewed it in the Jelly Roll Race style. 
Once I got the top done I pieced the back with larger pieces from my stash, happy to have another quilt completely from my stash.  My goal is to quilt and bind this lovely by the end of February – now, time to get it on the long-arm.
