Carol Doak Mystery BOM 2012 - "What's Black & White & Read All Over?"

This was Carol Doak's Mystery BOM in 2012-2013.   The patterns were shown in red and white, but I had been wanting to do a red, black and white quilt for a while, so that is what I did. The red tone on tone flowers and white (small polka dots) are mostly the same fabric throughout, but I used many different "black" fabrics.  For the back, I did some intuitive piecing to use up some of the scraps, which I learned from Angela Walters.  I quilted it in free motion with my Janome Horizon 7700 and bound it with a leopard black and white print.  I named the quilt "What's Black & White, and Read All Over?"  like the bubble gum riddle.
