Black Magic

Quilt #87
Black Magic

It's a king size Stack 'n Whack. Made in 1999, shortly after Bethany S. Reynolds' book Magic Stack -n- Whack Quilts was published.

I like the Zebra fabric, it made interesting blocks with lots of variety.

The pattern is the Half-Square Triangle Magic from the book.

I used a couple of the blocks that did not make the cut for the front of the quilt ,added some triangles to make a pinwheel design for the back.

Those blocks also doubled as my label.  I stitched some information on the bottom of each block.

Borders and Zebra fabric 

I free motion quilted this quilt on my Husqvarna domestic sewing machine. I quilted some of the designs in the stars and stippled the background using invisible nylon thread on the top and black polyester on the back.


Have a nice day.
