I am wanting to make a black and white quilt but seem to be having a hard time choosing fabrics.
I can find lots of black with white designs, but not alot of white with black designs.
I don't even have a pattern figured out yet. I was thinking something like a Turning Twenty but am leaning towards a Log Cabin.
I saw one and never book marked it that I liked so here I am ... Stuck!
I went to 3 quilt shops today and found 4 fabrics I liked...
Can anyone give me any input to spure my creative juices? I am Stuck!!!
Sorry for the long post but I have never had this much of a challenge picking or finding fabrics...
Thanks again Everyone!
Kirsten use the search button above, just type in box and it will take you to links on the board on your chosen subject :D
Looked at those and got more confused...
My first thought when reading your post, was the log cabin pattern. Then you had already said it. I think it would be stunning in that type of pattern. You could use all of your black w/white fabrcis on one side of the block then your white w/black prints on the other side. Just my idea, good luck picking your pattern. :D
order some blacknwhite charm squares. I got some from ebay.
working on this.
Are you adding a pop of another color? If so, I really like a trip around the world or many trips around the world. Even an irish chain or double irish chain.
that's cool Gail. I made mine with a pattern I made up- kind of a coins- short strips going horizontal with long strips- black, red, black, going vertical to break it up and give it a pop of color.
Here are some black and white log cabins to look at:
I love the idea of the charm squares. You'll get a fun, scrappy look!
Kirsten, when I made a black and white quilt for my son I spent over a year collecting fabrics. It is much harder to find black on white than the other way around. The only advice I can give you is to keep looking and collecting. Here are a few websites for you that have some with white backgrounds. Hope it helps you.
Here is the one I made for my daughter. It is called Three Bean Salad, cause the original pattern was in ruby, gold and olive green colored florals.
It was so easy, I made the top in one day.
