The Black and White Quilt Challenge Project

.............Thank you to everyone who has joined in on this Challenge. It is now officially CLOSED. I think we have close to 60 members!! YAY!! Follow our yearlong journey by clicking the icon on my sidebar. The remaining invites will be e-mailed today! Welcome Everyone!.........


Hi Everyone,

In my last post I mentioned a wonderful yearlong challenge! Yes, I said yearlong. Well, I had stirred some interest and have some participants. So I thought I would make it official. I have created a new blog called The Black and White Quilt Challenge Project, this will be a place where all participants can post progress on their projects throughout the year and offer us all some inspiration.

So here is the deal....

1. You need to create something with black and white fabric and add only ONE color.

2. It can be a quilt, a wearable, a tote, really whatever you like.

3. You have a whole year to complete your project.

4. If you choose, you can make multiple projects over the year.

If you would like to join me as well as, Eileen, Stephanie, Jacquie, Annemarie, and Henny, just leave a comment on this post letting me know and I will send an invite to become a team member for the new blog and you can start posting at anytime.

Oh and I almost forgot that Jane has an offer on some Black and White fabric....
I have an offer for you in my eBay store I have a set of 30 black and white fat quarters on sale, if anyone from your challenges says they are in your challenge, I will take $5 off the price

Also, you can put the picture that is on my sidebar on your blog with a link back to the new blog. That way anyone can join in at any time during the next year. 

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Until next time, Happy Quilting!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

You know what I change my mind, count me in!! I wonder (pink) what other (pink)color (pink) I will use(pink)?

Shari said...

I haven't entered a challenge before and am new to blogging but am keen to give it a go. I have a fair collection of black, white, black/white and white/black fabric so the real challenge will be - what other colour to include...
Cheers!

Sweet P said...

How cool! I've been toying with the idea of working in black and white. Please sign me up for the Challenge.

Jean said...

This sounds like fun, please sign me up too...blacks and whites can be so dramatic.

rachel griffith said...

oh yayyy.

i've been thinking about doing a black & white-ish quilt for a few months now...all i needed was a little push. {thanks to stephanie for blogging about it!!!}

:D

hetty said...

Okay! Count me in! This comes at such an appropriate time! I have been collecting black and whites for a while now and was wondering what I would do with them. Hmmmm, now, what shall I make? Decisions, decisions!

Miri said...

Hi Jackie-count me in! I've done an all black and white quilt but that was years ago...adding the extra color is very interesting :)

I love the idea of a year long challenge. I have made one black & white project, a jacket, but have been wanting to do something else. I think this will give me the kick I need. I will, however, not start on anything new until after the first of the year. thanks for letting me join.

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

This sounds fun! I've been looking wistfully at b/w fabrics thinking how fun they could be together. I'm glad there's a year to create :)

Lily Boot said...

Hi Jackie - I'd love to take part - it will surely be a challenge for me as I have never made anything in just black and white - with one extra colour :-) Should be great!

Cheryl said...

Oh this is tempting!!!!

Karen said...

Looks like we will be seeing lots of black and white (and one other colour) quilts over the next year. I will just have to watch the fun. Without even looking, I know exactly how many pieces of black and white fabric I have in my stash. That would be two fat quarters! LOL And no, I do not need an excuse to go buy more fabric! :)

jacquie said...

jackie,
still haven't gotten my invite to join the b&w blog. no hurry...i am excited though...think i might have a plan.

Paula said...

I'll play!! I've got some great black and whites that were given to me for my 40th birthday. This is a great challenge to help use them up.
Thanks!

Anina said...

Me! Me! Me! Sounds like fun!

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

I have so much happening as well, but it is a year long thing and why not...Jackie please sign me up as well...looks like a great challenge..

Day-Day said...

Hello Jackie, I would love to participate in your black & white challenge, thanks for the opportunity.

Kim said...

they say timing in life is everything-lol. I just finished a flimsy tonight of bk/w/r quilt from Bonnie's pineapple blossom pattern It's on Friday night's post on my blog. Still needs quilting but I'm very sad it's not for me

mellyandrosie said...

It sounds like such a fabulous idea Jackie!!! I am tempted to put my hand up but I know me and quilting commitments between all the other sewing I need to do. I will be watching with great interest though!!

Hanne said...

I think I can do that - one black and white quilt through 2009 :-)
Please sign me up for the challenge :-)

Silverthimble said...

I just started a black and white quilt on the weekend! I would love to join your challenge. I am planning a second black and white project as soon as the first is complete. Please add me to your challenge.

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

How could I not join? You've made it so easy. I love black and white. The question is what will strike my fancy? We'll see next year. Thanks for doing this Jackie.

Simone de Klerk said...

I'd love to join in! I baught some black and white fabrics lately for a quilt for our sofa. This challenge will push me to start it. So, I'm in! Please add me to the list. Hope to hear from you soon. I know my third color already, since this is in two of the fabrics with the black and white.

Carla said...

I would love to join you.

Rhonda said...

Year-long....that sounds do-able. I'd love to try. Hope you invite me.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Wow, you are getting a ton of quilters, how much fun is that!!

Nicole said...

Hi Jackie. I have been wanting to make a black and white quilt for the longest time. May I join the challenge?

The Calico Quilter said...

One question - do shades of gray count in the black and white part, or the one added color part? I have seen some striking black/white/gray quilts and have been thinking about trying one. I'm already making one of black/white/gray with tan added (it's the colors of my calico cat).

belinda said...

OK.....since it is for a year long.....and i'm kinda slow at things....i guess this would be a good place for me to get my feet wet with my first blogland participation....COUNT ME IN!!!

PamB said...

Jackie,

Sounds like great fun, please add me to your list for the black 7 white challenge.

Quiltdivajulie said...

Please count me in ~ I rarely participate in challenges, but I have been wanting to make myself a B&W for a year or more and have a wonderful stash just waiting for an excuse... (I've made two before but one went to the AFA Quilt to Remember and the other was gifted to family friends) so YES, I will make mine in 2009!!!

Linda said...

I want to join the black and white quilt challenge project!!
I have 2 bins of black/white fabrics and use them often.....This is my kind of challenge.....Linda

Greenmare said...

count me in, I've been picking out black and whites for a few years, but, do I HAVE to add another color? does gray count?

Sandi said...

Just the other day, I was looking at my black and white fabrics, plus a few nice grays and I had to make something so I made a make-up bag. I really need to do something else so please add me to the challenge. I can handle a whole year and I already had an idea for the black and whites and this will be the place to make it happen. :-)

Leah/ Texas/ United States said...

Holy cow Jackie! 56 comments already? You've created a monster! I blog-surfed into your site tonight and absolutely LOVE the colorful and Perfect quilt in your profile. Well done! Also, I would LOVE to join the black and white challenge, that is if you haven't already closed it due to the large volume of responses. Thanks!

cindyquiltsOR said...

Okay ... Calico Cat/Amy sent me. And I would also like the challenge of a black and white quilt.

Thanks for the challenge!

Sherry said...

Ok, I'll take up the challenge! I'm finishing up some other swaps that I am in & have been trying to keep myself away from others so that I could get more of my UFO's done (especially a long overdue wedding quilt for my sister!).

But, having a year & being able to do anything, sounds like something that I could work on along with my UFO's.

Please sign me up!

In peace & pieces,

Sherry V.
