    I finally have pics to post. This is a black and white version of 3 Bean Salad. I am really pleased with how it turned out. It took over a year to find all the garden themed fabrics and then pick the pattern.

    She likes it so much, she keeps it in a plastic comforter bag and won't use it because she's afraid to get it dirty. :wink: :D

    The back is a cool fabric with zodiacs and clocks etc. Will have to get pics of that some other time.

    Great quilt, Wendy, I used the sunflower material for backing for a blk and white I did. Have never seen the 3 bean salad, have to try that one.

    WOW! I love that one!
    I don't think I've seen "3 Bean Salad" before. It looks great - it was definitely worth the year's wait!

    Three Bean Salad is in the Leisure Arts book "Wild About Flowers" if you want to make one. It was very fast and easy.

    Thanks for all the complements!

    I knew a B&W quilt would be stunning, I'm currently collecting for one myself, hope it turns out that good. Mine is not a salad or beans, it's called Road to Freedom by Patrice Johnson. Hope to have a picture soon of some of the blocks.

    I love your B&W quilt. It's beautiful. I own a lot of those same fabrics. I've made one B&W quilt and I really enjoyed doing it.

    Did you notice how some fabrics are white and some are cream? I was disappointed that I hadn't noticed that before I made mine. I now have enough fabric to make a black & cream quilt. :lol: It'll happen. I like the 3 bean salad pattern. Thanks for sharing!

    Yvonne:

    Yes, I had to weed out a lot of my chosen fabrics because they appeared off white or cream in comparison.

    I saw one done with both cream and pure whites, and the designer added shades of gray. Then it was quilted with red thread. I personally thought that was too much. It took away from the purity of the black and white. But that's just me.

    I don't know if its a disorder, or if I am lacking the courage to add lots of different prints and colors together in one quilt. Maybe it is part of my neat freak thing. I have to have order and harmony or it doesn't work for me. :lol: :oops: :roll:

    Great looking quilt. I could look at B&W quilts dialy. :D I bought that pattern when I first started quilting to do in red and white. It is still waiting patiently. :roll:
    One block that works up nicely in B&W is http://www.quilterscache.com/S/SplitNinePatchBlock.html from Marcia Hohn's site. The cream area is white with some black and the red area is black with white. For the center block I am using a red fabric from the "Dimples" collection.

    Gorgeous, Tell your daughter to use it or you'll take it back. A beauty like that should be seen every day. What size blocks are they?

    They are 12" blocks. That is what makes it sooo easy and quick to put together. I made hers (the top) in a day and half!

    I am also doing a black and white sampler quilt pattern,which will be trimmed in some red around the blocks. My youngest daughter saw it and fell in love with it and she is wanting me to give it to her for christmas....Our guild is all making a black and white quilt for our BOM. Everyone's pattern is different....all is very pretty...we show our blocks every month at our meeting.
    I love your pattern, I have never heard of "three bean salad" before, but I love the way it looks...you have done a great job and it is very pretty, your daughter needs to show it off, though...

    Quiltmaker101,
    do you remember the book number and year? If I can't find it, would you mind scanning the pattern and sending it to me? I will send you my email address if you don't mind.
    Thanks in advance.

    What a pretty quilt! I'm not a black and white color person, but I do truly admire it when someone makes a quilt like the one you made. Bobbie
