    this is a quick and easy pattern(even tho it took me about 2 mos.) that Patrice gave me , it will keep me warm in my easy chair this winter. I'm thinking of backing it with flannel but does it all pill? I hate that!




    it looks better in person

    I backed a baby quilt with flannel and yes it did pill. Someone on the board recommended prewashing the flannel at least two times to deal with all the shrinkage. Even with the pilling, though, it's very soft and I thought it would be particularly good for a baby quilt. I just used flannel from Wal-Mart. I could be cuirous if a higher quality flannel (moda or the like) would pill as much......

    Kathy,
    That's dazzling! I love it! Is that the same pattern I did with all the scraps for my mom? The B & W make it look so different......WOW!!

    You do such a beautiful job of it all. I like the solid black idea. Flannel, hmm what about fleece if you want warmth?? Pillage here, pillage there, all will pillage everywhere. :(

    Very nice quilt. I like the black and white. I have been wanting to do a quilt in black and white but it just wouldn't go with the colors in my house or any of my family's houses. But after seeing yours I might just make one anyway. Thanks for sharing.

    Kathy~
    That is awesome! I love high contrasters like this!
    It looks great. Now you've got me thinking how well red would look mixed in with that!

    How about a red border! ?!?! ?! :shock:

    Nice job Kathy! I'm with Sharon - how about fleece instead of flannel? It would surely be warm! I love the black & white too. :D

    i've never seen a flannel that didn't pill eventually. here's hoping we'll get some specific recommendations if anybody has found one.

    I love the way it came out. I have started collecting black and white fabrics to make a quilt. Is it possible to get a copy of the pattern?

    i've seen Kathy's black & white rendition of the pattern in person. it's even prettier up close. and quite snuggly for lazy days on the couch. :-)

    the pattern is one of my originals, named Surprise Party. it feels wrong somehow to piggy-back an "advertisement" on this gorgeous post but ... i do offer it for sale.

    It has great placement of the lights and darks. So I am sure it looks wonderful in person
