Sylvia's Quilt Preview

I've made some progress on the quilt for my niece Sylvia.  It is a sort of checkerboard pattern in red, white and black--the same color scheme as She Loves Lucy, which I made for my daughter-in-law Laurie.  Like Laurie, Sylvia also loves white and black damask, and I will include a little of it in Sylvia's quilt.

Below is a sketch of Sylvia's quilt.  The real thing will be scrappier.

As I often do, I'm using my Organized Chaos Grid and System.  Below is my Organized Chaos map.

I've finished almost half of the 16 blocks, which you can see below.
I picked up a couple more black tone-on-tone fat quarters today, to add a little more variety.  I was surprised at how little black there was in my stash that would work with the quilt.  I don't want to do much repeating of solid black, and I think I'll be fine with the addition of the two new fabrics.
