    Is this a regular pattern or quilt style? I recently saw one in color. I simply love it and would love to make one. Is there a fabric or template for the picture area of the quilt?

    The pattern is from Crab-apple hill. Thanks everyone. I have to just say, please when making this quilt use a thread that stands out amoung the fabric. I seen one done at a quilt show and stunning blues, but the gal used a very light blue floss and it really got lost. Her quilt was gorgeous.

    Did you use the EZtransfer or use a light box to trace the design onto your fabric for embroidery? I purchased the pattern and fabrics, but haven't had time to get to the embroidery part. Your quilt is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    You did a great job on your quilt, I have never tried a black and white quilt before. Thank you for sharing your quilt with us. That is why I love the quilting board, because you see things on here you would not have thought of doing.

    Thank you, I so agree, everyone is so help full on this board, and some awesome ideals as well. My son picked the black/white combo, he seen the pattern and loved the quilt, he said " I want this quillt only in black/white. Him & his girlfriend are now expecting there first baby, Grammie again. I will enter the quilt in the fair this year. I had put some quilts in last year and so pleased that I won some ribbons.

Thanks for sharing.
    I am doing this same quilt. I've finished the panels of embroidery, but I haven't started sewing the blocks yet. I transferred the pattern using a light box. Was not hard to do at all. The tracing goes a lot quicker than it looks.

    You said you might bead your next one. I didn't do that, but I did place a few irredescent (sp???) sparkly sequins here and there and in the capital letters.
