Black and white and bright all over




I'm entering this as my challenge, although it doesn't quite meet the challenge requirements of black and white and one colour. This is black and white and bright , with lime green being the dominant colour and lots of others mixed in for good measure. It is 50 by 60 and still in the flimsy stage. I intend this to be machine quilted on a flannel backing, so it will be a cozy throw. I've been watching the rest of you do the challenge, and I couldn't limit myself to one colour. But I did collect b/w prints for the last several months, and cut into about half of them for this project. At last count, I used more than 50 fabrics in this quilt. Thanks Jackie for a great challenge, and for enlightening me in the path of black and white.

I LOVE your houses - and to me, no big deal about the extra color - it just adds to the quilt.

Wow. I love all your quilts. You have a great sense of color. Glad to hear you are going to try to learn to crochet. You will love it. Being a leftie is really not that big of a challenge. I was able to find some youtube videos. Never took a class. Once you get going you will have so much fun with all you color palette. Hope you don't mind if I follow as I am always loving for fun inspirational color schemes.
