B&W&Pink Mini Blog Fest - Fall 2010

Scrappy Color Play 8.5" x 11"

This is one of my all time favorite quilts, made for the Journal Quilt Project and shown at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I love the graphic nature of the pink, fuchsia and black and white. It was a lot of fun to do such small piecing (the blocks are are about 2.75"-yes less than 3"). The paper pieced pattern was designed by my sister Donna and this is a sample for her class. It is a mix and match sampler: there are 6 pairs of blocks with the same pieces but each twin looks different based on color placement. See if you can find the match for each block.
There is a pattern available.

Don't forget to visit my other favorite -- part of my antique quilt collection (a cool blue and white schoolhouse quilt).

  2. What an amazing little quilt. It is hard to believe how small the blocks turned out. I am always attracted to black and white quilts, especially if they have an accent of some bright color. That's why I am so attracted to this one.

  7. I've seen red, black and white, before, but the magenta instead of the red is stunning.

  8. I found all the pairs! But I would never have the patience to do something this tiny - with a big quilt you can ease out any uneven pieces and distract everyone by pointing out other bits that you did great, but this is entirely perfect.

  10. It definately is a quilt of color play. I loved the one you put into the Springville Quilt Show too--the Crazy Quilt--that was a kick! You just keep coming up with wonderful surprises.

  16. Stunning! I can't believe the blocks are so small-perfect piecing!

    Fun working out the puzzle of the pairs...that card trick and the one above took me a minute to catch.

  24. I had to click on the photo to bring it up bigger to be able to figure out the pairs. It took me a while, but I finally got it. This was a great lesson for me in the use of value - it certainly makes a difference, doesn't it. I'm not a pink person, but have to say the combination of hot pink and black is definitely appealing.

  25. The pink and black play off each other so well. Amazed for the size of the blocks. Great work and use of color

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your piecing is amazing with the smallness of each block. Very impressive.

  29. Oh my goodness - the whole quilt is only 8.5" x 11"- WOW! Very often sampler quilts look disjointed to me - everything fits together beautifully - and I love the B&W and fuschia.

  34. Love this color combo. I like black/white and any color. And I have the fabric to make one...but I need time
    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I don't remember where I got the pattern for the turtle. It could have been a coloring book or something I saw in an ad. who knows. We never worried about copyright in the 70s. My how things have changed.
