What You Get+-

Black and white prints are so much fun! They work great paired with brights colors, pastels, neutrals - everything looks good with black and white!

I like using them for background blocks, for applique, and also for sashing and binding - so I'm offering them as a bundle of pre-cut fabric strips for maximum versatility.

Each bundle contains ten 12" strips of fabric, cut selvedge to selvedge. The prints shown in the photo are a good representation of what you'll get, but you won't necessarily get these exact same fabrics. 

Background blocks

These strips make it super easy to cut the 11" square blocks I recommend for all my quilt patterns, with almost no waste. You can get three blocks out of each strip of fabric (with some left over). For a nap or crib size quilt, you'll only need one bundle. For a twin size quilt you'll need two bundles, plus one additional square. If you don't have ANY black and white prints in your stash, you can find a fun speckle print sold by the half-yard here.


    It depends on how skinny or chunky your animals are, but a good, conservative estimate is that you can get at least 5 appliques out of each strip of fabric. One bundle will be more than enough fabric to do all the appliques in a crib or nap size quilt, with plenty of variety and a fair bit left over.

    A twin size quilt has 63 blocks. One bundle is enough to make at least 50, so you're most of the way there. That's a conservative estimate, so if you're doing a lot of skinny animals or are really careful with your fabric use, you'll probably be able to get a full 63 blocks from one bundle. If not, you may need to supplement with a bit of extra from your stash.


    I LOVE black and white sashing around brightly-colored blocks. One bundle is more than enough to add either wonky or traditional sashing to a nap or crib size quilt, with enough leftover for binding. 

    One bundle will be just barely enough to add traditional sashing to a twin-size quilt. You'll need to be VERY careful with your cutting. It's almost enough to add wonky sashing to a twin-size quilt. You'll need to supplement with just a little bit of extra, or make your quilt a tiny bit smaller than my generous twin size.

    These are high quality 100% cotton fabrics from Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller, and Timeless Treasures - the exact fabrics I use in my own quilts.
