Free Quilt Pattern - "Ebony and Ivory"

I just came across this gorgeous free quilt pattern. It is called "Ebony and Ivory" and it is by Project House 360. Click on the photo to download the instructions from RJR Fabrics.

I think the fabric and color selections really make this quilt! This is an advanced quilt with many techniques, so why not put yourself to the challenge in 2013?

My prayer is that you and your loved ones have a blessed 2013!
