Black to White (BTW)
For most people who text, BTW means by the way. But Modern quilters are a different breed. For them, BTW means from black to white. The purpose of this challenge is to create a modern quilt whose colors change from black to white and has shades of gray in-between. If a little something extra is needed, then one color, in one place, may be added to give the quilt a little POP!
