HELP!!!
My boyfriend's daughter has a new home & I would love to do a lap quilt for her living room. Her decor is VERY modern...black, cream & reds. Am thinking of doing the disappearing nine patch, but cannot find fabrics. Lots of black & white, but no black & creams. Any suggestions??? :icon_rolleyes:

I've seen some black and cream in some christmassy fabrics but you would probably be best off not looking to find them in the same fabric. Decide if you want the cream or the black to be dominant and then use say cream fabrics in the corner (uncut) squares and black in the middle (cut) squares and red in the centre to become the small squares. Use a variety of creams and blacks to create interest.

Good luck with your project, would love to see pics.

If they like modern maybe you could go with a red and cream print and use a solid black and cream.

It would fit modern decor better than using lots of busy prints
