    what pattern?

    Chanced upon an outdoor sale a few days ago and picked up a bag of fabric scraps. When I rummaged through it, I found a fabric drawstring bag with 10 ziplock bags of strips...all strips were 2.5" wide and bags were organized by strip length...5 bags of black prints. Lengths were 10'5"/8.5"/6.5"/4.5"/2.5" The other 5 bags had the same sizes except in solid white. Anyone have an idea what pattern (s) would use these?

        This is beautiful. Black & white go with so many bright colors. I've seen it combined with red, green, aqua, or yellow. The Smoke & Fire quilt I'm currently working on has red diamonds with the B/W fabrics.

          Oh that one is good due to the different sizes in cuts.

            I was thinking Log Cabin but the Courthouse steps seems relatively easy and I think it would look good in blacks/whites.
            I was thinking that a pattern that had broken strips. I saw a pic of a quilt but I don''t know the name. It was done in strips but all the strips were partly black & partly white. The w/b was joined with a miter. If I remember correctly, the layout had the miters going one way, then the other to form the pattern. I'm probably not explaining it well but does anyone know such a patter?

              I think I know what you mean. I can see it in my head, it's just thinking up the search words. lol

              While I was looking I thought you could make a Bento box with some trimming.

                  I have that gridded paper too. It certainly comes in handy for quilting designs to see what they will look like.

                This pattern uses strips that are then sewn into miters. I made it in batiks, but I bet it would be stunning in black and white with an accent color in the cornerstones.

                  Very nice pattern. It's not the one I was thinking about but I am saving the photo for inspiration. Thanks.

                  Trip Around the World with the tube method . There are lots of youtube tutorials for this method and this is one of them - plenty to choose from anyway

                  You wouldn't use precut fabric for this normally.
