Empire Place in Cotton Couture January 10 2016, 2 Comments

Last but certainly not least is the Empire Place quilt I made using solids and black & white prints. I used Michael Miller's extensive line of Cotton Couture solids and assorted Black & White prints to make this quilt and I love how it turned out! I may have even fussy-cut some little elephants for the center of the Accent blocks.

I chose a spectrum of 18 solids and paired them with assorted black and white prints to make this quilt. I used a white solid for the main accent and a charcoal grey for the background. I love how the white radiates around the blocks and draws the eye in. My favorite blocks to sew were the scrappy ones! It was fun to mix a bunch of black & white prints; slightly busy, but fun!

It was a lot of fun to pair black and white prints with a color to create each block. Typically I paired a white-on-black and black-on-white with each color so there was some contrast in the blocks.
