I can show you my Christmas Quilt done for my daughter this year. I used lovely Kokka Linen fabrics with some of my stash thrown in for good measure.
I really enjoyed this quilt the fabrics are of course extra crisp and I just randomly picked up the pieces I had already cut into shapes and put them together making blocks.
I put in one little dash of red for a focal point.
Lovely birds and spotted deer.
This picture is a bit fuzzy from the sunlight flowing into the top. but it should give you an idea of the full quilt. The black and white just goes so well with the mustard I think. I backed it in a light mustard gingham check, just a soft cotton because I thought that as a lap quilt it would be softer with the cotton on the contact side.
