The Challenge

*********The Challenge is now officially CLOSED . The blog only allows 100 authors and we have reached that amount. But I invite you who would still like to participate to please do so on your own an post about it on your personal blogs. We would all love to be inspired. Thank you for your interested in joining my challenge and I look forward to a year of wonderful work!************************

Welcome to the Black and White Quilt Challenge Project. Please enjoy all the wonderful posts over the next year and seeing what all participants are creating!

So here is the deal....

1. You need to create something with black and white fabric and add onlyONE color.

2. It can be a quilt, a wearable, a tote, really whatever you like.

3. You have a whole year to complete your project.

4. If you choose, you can make multiple projects over the year.

If you would like to join me as well as, Eileen, Stephanie, Jacquie,Annemarie, and Henny, just leave a comment on this post letting me know and I will send an invite to become a team member for the new blog and you can start posting at anytime.

Oh and I almost forgot that Jane has an offer on some Black and White fabric....
I have an offer for you in my eBay store I have a set of 30 black and white fat quarters on sale, if anyone from your challenges says they are in your challenge, I will take $5 off the price.

Also, you can put the picture that is on my sidebar on your blog with a link back to the new blog. That way anyone can join in at any time during the next year.
Jackie

Hi Jackie,
I would like to join in with the black & white challenge.
I have had a quilt idea using this colour scheme for awhile and have been collecting fabrics so this would give me the kick along to start it.
Kind regards from Liz

Mary said...

Are you still open for new people to take the challenge? I just found your site and love everything I've seen! I've never made a black and white quilt but love how they look and with a whole year, might actually get one done. If you are already closed up, I'll just enjoy watching the rest of you!

Mary said...

Forgot to add my quilt blog address: ffpquiltcorner.blogspot.com

Jackie:
I would really like to participate in the b&w challenge. Does the fact that I do not have a blog present a problem? I have been thinking about starting a blog but have been hung up on the name - figure it should something meaningful, releveant, etc (yea, I overthink things). :)
Anyway, would love to participate if you will have me.

Kathy said...

Please let me in to the challenge. I also love black and white and red, and I was going to use it for our Bee mystery which is starting in January. Hope to use up a lot of my bl;ack&white stash.

Anne said...

Jackie; I would love to take your challenge, but have to wait until after the New Year, if that is OK? I have a Tub (Yes, thats right, a TUB) full of Black/White fabrics and am really anxious to make a quilt with perhaps yellow as my third color..... will have to be many different yellows as I have several baskets of yellow fat quarters in my stash... actually, I don't have a 'stash', ;-)
I have a 'shopping mall' of fabric ;-)... Anne;

Mel said...

Hey there! Looks like a fun crowd! Is it too late to join? If not, I have a SUPER black and white print I bought that would be perfect for this!!

My mother-in-law has been collecting B&W's for a couple of years now, but hasn't done anything with them, maybe this challenge will inspire her too!
