Black and White Plus One


I have already started working on my June goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.  The top for my brother's quilt is all pieced.  The red color is Kona Crimson, much more masculine than the one I ended up keeping.  (It has more of a purple color.)


I have had so much fun working on my brother's quilt, because I love quilts that are black and white plus one more color.  I consider my craft room to be "black and white plus bright" because of the quilts and storage boxes in there.


As this is post #101 for me, I have decided to have my first giveaway.  I am willing to ship this charm pack internationally, so anyone can enter.  It is the Weeds line by Me & My Sister Designs which is black and white plus red. 


To be entered in the giveaway leave me a comment* telling me what is your favorite black and white plus one color combination.  (And it doesn't have to be red!)  This giveaway will remain open  until Saturday, June 7 at midnight.  I will notify the winner by email and add the winner's name to the end of this post.  Please make sure I can contact you. 

*If for some reason blogger won't let you leave a comment, email me your answer at quilt (dot) kisses (at) gmail (dot) com and I will enter you in the giveaway.  :)

~This giveaway is now closed, and I would like to congratulate Beth.~

P.S.  I will be linking up with Let's Bee Social and Needle and Thread Thursday.

  1. I love black, white, and pink together! My daughter made a gorgeous black, white and green quilt a few years ago and I've got to admit that I was quite skeptical, but it came out beautifully.

  2. You are fast! The quilt top looks great! There are SO MANY "black white & ___" options that I love. I think the two that come to mind right now are black, white & turquoise and black, white & lime green. I happen to be working on a black, white & red at the moment.

  6. Wow - the quilt top went together super fast! Tough choice for me, but I think I would have to pick black and white and royal blue. :)

  11. Pretty much everything goes with black and white, except maybe brown. But my favorite color to add IS red. It is my all time favorite color and makes everything better!

    I love your black and white plus one quilts!

  12. Black and white are so classic and the addition of one more colour is perfection. :o)
    Chuckling as I look closer at those B&W fabrics - love that mustache print!

  15. Your brother will love the quilt. I would. My favourite colours seem to change from day to day and mood to mood. At this moment my favourite colour, to add to black and white, would be turquoise.

  16. Your brother is going to love it for sure. Beautiful! Congratulations on your 101st post :) Black, white and yellow. Every time I see a quilt made with them I think I have to make one. . . haven't yet but it is on my list!

  19. I like red as an accent color, but yellow is also pretty nice! I may or may not be in a yellow mood these days. I bought fabric for three different projects this week... they all included yellow! :P Thanks for the chance to win.

  20. I've made 2 black and white quilts and they both had extra colour added. One had a moss green in it and the other one had a colour wheel in the center and the background was pieced black & white triangles. I like your checkerboard quilt...maybe I have enough black & white scraps to make my own :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!!
