Black Licorice and Jelly Beans Quilt

This just came back from the long arm quilter. I end up calling it Black Licorice for short.

I loved the bright colors so much I pieced them into the back too. That helps bust stash!

Marian's terrific quilting shows really nicely on the back. Once the binding's on it's going to hang in the hallway.

I thought the name for this quilt, which my friend Rosy suggested, was so cute and original. I was pretty surprised recently when I opened the guild newsletter and saw this quilt by Joe Wood, entitled Black Licorice and Butterscotch.

As King Solomon once said, "There is nothing new under the sun." :)

When two talented quilters combine their talents, there is a "WOW" results!! (I think "he" stole the name from you!!)
