Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Amazing how the colors "pop" on a black background! Lerlene Nevaril's instructions are very easy to follow. I especially enjoy her technique of combining blocks with "hidden" blocks, which are a simplified version of the original block--makes for a more complex-looking quilt when it's really easier!

I have always been a fan of the strength of contrast created by using a predominantly black background and this new set of ideas will show off bright and solid fabrics alike in a gem-like fashion. There are 11 sparkling projects to turn night into light and the handy cutting charts speed up the tedious cutting element of preparation so that you can get right on with the sewing aspect. According to this book, black is the new neutral! --Fabrications Quilting For You Magazine; September 2012
