Black and White Challenge: Log Cabin quilt top finished

Yahoo! I've finished! I was really starting to think that this quilt was jinxed: besides the misstep with the sashing, I blew out two irons! (I don't even know how...ok, well I dropped one but the other?!)
I am happy with the result though...I got the heavy patterning broken up by the sashing but still very evident...just the look I was going after...very graphic and just a little bit 3-D.
Here you can see all the different fabrics I used: lots of black and white prints and just a few red and black on white prints to mix up the whites.
I think the second from the last black/white is my favorite Art Deco looking!

This black and white is a fabric I thought I'd never use...its actually a skeleton print! but doesn't it look great here...the white on the black is really bold compared to the other black/white prints.

It's a rainy, cloudy day and I think the color of the photos has suffered :(

Good job.
Can't wait to see what you work on next.

Well done, Miri! This is beautiful. I see more and more the longer I look at it. Too bad about the irons, bummer.

Tell your DH thank you from me (for reading the German). I googled that phrase and it confirmed what he said and that was the only information I could get on them.

WOW, I LOVE YOUR B/W/R Log Cabin, I just finished a B/W Crazy Quilt and am so thrilled with it, now I just have to figure out where to display it, too much embellishing to use it, so it should hang somewhere. Thanks for sharing. Jeanne

turned out lovely. Hope you don't mind that I added a link to my blog where I was talking about log cabin quilts.
