Black and White

Since the weather is not cooperating with plans to drive anywhere, I am staying put inside. Since I am housebound, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and I spent the day quilting.

I have been busy today working on this black and white Bento Box quilt.

I have joined the on-line Black and White Quilting Project . I have always wanted to work with black and white so I have used the opportunity presented by the challenge to work on one of my black and white ideas–the Bento Box.

The plan is to make this quilt lap size. I have a second idea I would like to try in black and white. Once this quilt is a finished flimsy, I will be able to use the left over black and white fabrics and start a second black and white project–a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P).
I quite often use a website called, Webshots–, as a source of inspiration for future quilt projects. I have seen both a black and white Bento Box and a black and white Disappearing Nine Patch there. All you have to do is go to the Webshots site and type in the name of a quilt pattern, add the word quilt and search. You are often overwhelmed by the number of pictures of that particular quilt pattern that will come up.

  1. I’m not a fan of the Bento Box pattern, but I know this one is going to win me over. It’s looking wonderful. And btw, thanks for pointing out webshots. I’ve never been there and will now give it a try.

  2. We got a ton of snow this year too! Over 2 feet. Then yesterday it got warm and poured rain! now there is hardly anything left! And I LOVE webshots! I keep all my pics there! And your right – what a source of inspiration!

  3. It is going to be a terrific quilt, Norma! The Bento box is pattern is wonderful for these fabrics.
    I have always wanted to work with black and white fabrics together- perhaps I will have to try it too..

    There are always more designs to make and quilts to create aren’t there.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Happy New Year to you and yours,
