Black and White

Have you heard about the two-color challenge over at Color Girl Quilts? Sharon is hosting a sew along / challenge to use just two colors. If you use black and white, the project could be eligible for a future issue of Curated Quilts.

Since I'm not happy with the stark black and white bits in my Yellow-Green BOM project (scroll down), maybe I can repurpose them. And add a few fabrics from stash. I seem to have a few black and white prints. Here's the palette I've pulled for the black and white challenge.

Of course I'll add solid black and white or white-on-white as well. I may not use all of these prints, but at least I have plenty to choose from.

I have no idea yet what I'll make, but the pattern link up is next week so I 'd better figure out something pretty quickly. The top is due end of June and the finished quilt (image) is due August 1st for Curated Quilts. Minimum size is not less than 150" around the perimeter. If I make a 40 x 40" top that's 160" so that should qualify.

Since I finished Pickle Dish and the Red Project is stalled, I've been wanting a new project to work on. The Yellow-Green BOM has to wait for the monthly block assignments, so I can work on this black and white challenge in the meantime.

It's kind of ironic that someone who calls herself the Colorful Fabriholic wants to work exclusively in black and white, and has the stash to do so, don't you think??? Wish me luck that I can pull something off!


  1. Good luck to you -- I've tried to do two color and always end up adding a third color for the zing factor.

  2. I agree with Julie, just two colors can be quite challenging.

  3. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  4. Nice collection, wish I had that many.
