Thanks! I'm trying to dwindle down my "brights" tub.

This first one looks like a shooting star.  Haven't that block before.  Nice.

And fortunately you have lots of black for contrast.  Both of those are nice quilts.

 I use a lot of black also to set off my brights. Never thought of buying a bolt.  Good idea.

I finally went to buying a whole bolt because I   had several big pieces of different blacks and they don't always play together well.  Now I don't have to worry about having enough of the same black.  

I used to buy bolts of Kona black some years back. I should get another bolt because like you said the shade from bolt to bolt is different. I once heard that the overdye  other colors so I bleached some of my black scraps, some bleached to light green and some to light orange.....no wonder they were different.

Last night I finished a Christmas quilt that was more than 2 years in the making.  By Fall 2021 I had the top put together and planned to give it to my sister for Christmas.  I had sent it to Carrie to quilt but was overcome by events and didn't get it bound in time for Christmas so I picked it up a couple weeks ago and finished the binding.  It still needs a label but I have plenty of time for that.  Hope she likes it.
