Black and White Inspiration Vol. V

Hello Everyone,

First don't forget to enter the AccuQuilt GO! giveaway by clicking HERE.

The last installment of the Black and White Inspiration. This is a quilt that I blogged about in February, 2008. I made this for a friend who was retiring at the time. She had purchased a sporty new HOT red car, so of course I thought red would be the perfect compliment to the black and white.


A close up of the quilting. I don't remember what design I used, but it was an edge to edge and it was wavy. Sorry, I just can't remember that far back, I guess it is age. Plus the quilt is now with my friend in AZ.


Here is a photo of my sweet little Beanie posing on the quilt top, prior to quilting. Since she is black, she fit right in on this post!!


Here is the whole quilt. It is called Twisted Sister and is a pattern by Ami Simms. You can find it here. I think that will be it for my black and white posts. Now I need to get myself going on finishing up my black and white Hunter's Star so I have something else to show you!

Don't forget to enter the AccuQuilt GO! giveaway going on right HERE!

Until Next Time...

Another beautiful quilt! Our guild had a black and white challenge this year and the projects were all so lovely! I think I need to add a black and white quilt to my to-do list! :0)

Love the black and white with red, nice color combination and works so well with that pattern. Isn't funny how all of our cats have to test the quilts when we are done;)

This is an awesome quilt! I love red with black and white. I also love the placement of the colors in these whirligig blocks, giving this quilt so much movement and appeal.

Really gorgeous, Jackie! I love the photo with the black cat sitting on the quilt. My cats always seem to know just which quilts to sit on to make them look their best!

Beautifully crafted and I love the colors.

Where I live, there are quite a few teen-age one parent pregnancies. Very often the girls ask for baby items on Free Cycle. So, I make baby quilts just to give to these girls. Most of the girls have such sad stories and really need help. I have arthritis in my hands which causes me to have trouble cutting fabric. The Go-Cutter would certainly be a blessing to me. Sarah

I am already a follower of yours, Jackie. Thanks for the chance to win to you and the Go-Cutter Co. Sarah

Black and white is terrific with just about any colour.....I want to do one with florescent green.

Just looked at the number of comments you have received for the Go giveaway.....OMG!!! you should have a pool on how many comments you will have accumulated by the deadline. LOL

Cathy said...

Ok, so I was on my way from reading your last post...to enter your comp, but then I got distracted by this black and white and red gorgeous-ness! Wow. I am going to have to do some black and white and a colour quilts in the future! Now I'm off to enter, if i'm not too late by the time I get there!!! xo

I LOVE seeing cats on quilts. Perhaps Beanie thinks it's for him as he blends in so well!
