Up-date Squares from Guess who in the Netherlands! :) Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 49 'Black and White' Challenge 1/4

Ta - Dah! SIBOL 49 'Black and White' theme 1/4.

Hello Everyone!

This is my second post today. I do hope you will go back to the previous post and have a look at the Squares from loopy_jess, bonsall and Didsbury 13.

I have a Ta - Dah! today for you. This is SIBOL No. 49.  Now for anyone new visiting SIBOL, we have Challenges throughout the year. I have been working on the 'Black and White' Challenge from 2010. I am very pleased to say I have now finished the first of the 'Black and White' Blankets. Would you be able to think of a name for this one? I had great fun making the Blanket, including Knitted Squares on this one too.

The Squares have all been superb! I have really enjoyed working with them. Such a variety, do take a look. Thanks to everyone that has very kindly sent me Squares for this Challenge. I have been working on the Black and Whites in a different order this time. I assembled the four Blankets up first, then working on the Borders after. So in the next week or two you will see the other three.

Here we go.....

I'm not going outside today, pouring of rain!

I couldn't go outside as it was pouring of rain, so I took some photos inside, but unfortunately the light is not too good, roll on the Summer!

I thought I had finished today's post, but I have just received Karins' Squares! Please take a look.

Karin has made Jan Eaton No. 38 'Dahlia'. Such a pretty Square and one of Karins' favourites!

Jan Eaton No. 38 'Dahlia'. Beautiful Squares Karin, thank you!
