WiP - B&W


I wanted to do some B&W project for a while. 3cm squares felt insane so I upgraded to 4cm. It seems some rainbow squares will sneak in as well.


The technique with interfacing seems just fine so I took it to my ironing board. I did not draw any grid and worked from center towards sides. It seems fine until I realized I got the interfacing wrong! I had the side with glue facing down and I was ironing all over already. I ruined my ironing board cover! That's what I thought. Nope. It came off pretty easy as it is not cotton but some silver teflon whatever. Oh well, let's start over ....

Today is 3rd week of the 2014 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop! Let's check out what tips and tricks these ladies share with us.

  1. Oh MY! Glad to hear you are not needing to buy a new ironing board cover, Vera. That sounds just like something I would do! The black and white looks great and the little pops of colour will add such great interest. Thanks for sharing the links to the new bloggers in the hop!

  3. Sometimes you just have to laugh. So glad your ironing board wasn't ruined. The black and white looks great. I particularly like the the spiral print and the pretty flowery print. I'm curious to see how the rainbow squares will be used.

  8. One part of the boxes of fabric I was given yesterday is a bag full on black and white. Some of it is already cut in to strips. Now I'm itching to strip the rest and work on making a quilt top in black and white. I've never done that yet.
    I'm contemplating what pop color I would like to put in....if any.

  12. Yep I would do that, thanks for sharing. I have so much black and white eventually I will feel the need to make one. This is the method I will use too. Thanks for posting the hoppers!

  13. I did that too when making one of Katy Cameron's bags. Ironed the interfacing beautifully to my ironing board!

  14. I love how bold and simple this is- very pixelated looking, like a computer generated rain cloud! I think a few rainbow splashes will work well with it.

  15. Ah! That was lucky! I'm interested to hear about what you think of this technique with the interfacing.

  16. Oh noes! I'm glad the cover survived! I bet his black and white is going to be fantastic!

  17. you would not believe the number of times I've done that! My ironing board cover is a sticky mess... For my first quilt I tried the double sided fusible wadding - I didn't think it through and ironed my quilt to to my ironing board!!

    I like this idea of black and white with a bit of rainbow, it really got me thinking and now I want to play! The second photo looks like one of those colour photos turned to black and white to see value.

  18. I haven't used black and white fabrics much, this looks like a fun project! I use a protecting cloth on my ironing board when using interfacing, especially for garment making when my cutting is a little off.

  19. That's a gorgeous b&w mosaic - pixelated looking indeed (the perfect description, Bess!) :) I have a bunch of b&w and lime green string blocks made that will eventually become a quilt. Eventually :D

    I've had many faux pas with iron-on interfacing :/ The one I do the most (why don't I learn??!!) is to iron it with too hot of an iron, which MELTS it and makes it curl. UGGGHHHH. I try to remember to use a pressing cloth (my pressing cloth is a paper towel, haha) and that eliminates the problem - but sometimes I forget and make a mess. OOPS!

  20. That was a lucky miss with the iron. I love the way this piece is going. I'm a big fan of black and white.
