    What do you all think about a Turning Twenty Quilt done in Black and Whites? Do you think it would be pretty or too busy. Using these Fabrics.

    Thanks. I actually am going to make it as a wall hanging for a friend whos son is getting married and that lives in Brazil. Supposedly it doesn't get real cold down there, so instead of the quilt, I am thinking of a wall hanging. Then I was thinking maybe it needs to have red also?

    So what your saying is, make it in black and white then around it use what 2 1/2 " red sashing and maybe a 4 or 5 inch black and White border....Oh that actually does sound pretty. I will consider that for sure. Thanks.

    I actually bought that fabric at JoAnns today. It was all on sale. And it is going to be the beginning of my stash collection. I bought 1 yard of each...but only needed a fat quarter of each originally for the quilt I at first was thinking about. :) So technically, I have 3 fat quarters more then I was planning. But the fabric was $2.99 a yard, and just one fat quarter is $1.99 so I think I did good.

    Love your fabrics - it would be really dramatic if you pick one very vibrant colour and use it sparingly-red, purple, yellow, whatever *zings* for you.

    I did Turning Twenty in black and white for my neice as a wedding gift. She loves it.
    Do a search for 'wedding quilt' posted about March 2,2010.
    It was a fun quilt to make. Let me know if I can be of any help to you.


    Happy New Year.

    Those colors are yummy!!! I am doing a black and white quilt, I think I may use a splash of bright aqua. I layed some different colors with the B & W and I really liked the aqua...

    Pretty fabrics! Another similar pattern, using smaller pieces would be the Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Designs. Just a thought since it is to be a wall hanging~

    My daughter made a turning twenty in black/white then did one of black/white/red--both are very nice.

    I love these fabrics. I used the first 2 on the right to make my Bow Tuck Purse. Great minds must think the same.
