Black Tie Affair

It’s Halloween Month!  Tomorrow my Halloween posts will begin, but today I have an exciting finish to show you from this past week…my Black & White quilt, Black Tie Affair, is quilted and bound, and off to be judged and hung in our Guild Show this week:

It’s a generous throw, roughly 65 x 80 inches.  It’s hard to see in the photos, but it is quilted (by my fabulous friend, Trina) in hot pink thread!

I have had that Dress Form fabric for a few years, and I ADORE it.  The pink is Moda’s Petal Power by Maggie & Sharon, another fabric that came from the stash. See that sweet hot pink flange on the binding?  Trina taught me how to do that as well (Tutorial coming soon!).  Here’s the backing fabric (LOVE that Michael Miller Button Up print!):

I really like quilts that create secondary patterns…the kaleidoscope has endless options depending on your fabric placement…

This best part of this quilt?  It’s for *me*!!  (insert happy dance here).

Tomorrow, the Halloween-O-Rama starts here at Threads of Conversation…  I’m all set with my snappy new icons:

See you tomorrow!!!!!!!

At the end of October, I will be giving away multiple prizes, including a quilted item, holiday fabric, patterns, etc.  The more posts you comment on in October the better your chances of winning something!  Follow my blog and you have an even better chance!!!
So, do you have a favorite holiday?  If so, which one and why?

  1. Doris! This is such a gorgeous quilt! I love the black and white prints, and the pink thread and border really add so much dimension to this. Definitely love those kaleidoscope blocks, which look like they are swirling around. How fun that this quilt is for YOU! Good luck with the judging at the show!

  2. Oh my goodness – I LOVE that quilt….wow…just awesome….I have been collecting black/white fabrics for a while…..and used some in a log cabin top recently….but I just love what you have done…and the quilting in hot pink – great touch! Well done you deserve to do a happy dance!

  3. The hot pink is such a perfect complement to your great collection of B/W fabrics. That dress form border fabric is cute as can be. You saved it for a great quilt.
    Best of luck at the quilt show!
