graphic quilt

I just finished this quilt. It started by doodling on graph paper. I love the high contrast with the black & white fabric. It would make a great quilt for a beginner to make as it is really just a fence rail pattern. I love the combination of black & brown. This is more a golden brown. The complex pattern in the border fabric adds another element of interest.
The binding (I think IMHO!)works as a final frame matching the inner thin border. simple but effective. Machine quilting is still a big challenge for me. I feel like I'm starting over every time I attempt it. practice. practice.
