Tammy #9 Challange black and white

Sorry, I am a little late with this, been away on vacation.
I wanted to see what would happen if you kept cutting and sewing, cutting and sewing, etc. So I made a string block with only black and whites, cut it and resewed about 6 times, and this is how it turned out. Only thing is it is very thick, but will make a great mug rug or coaster without a liner.

Mirian #9 Challange Black and While

Marian  has asked me to post her challenge.
I love the palm trees.

I simply drew the very simple palm trees onto black fabric with bondaweb ironed on.........On white fabric I simply stitched a black line for the horizon and some stitching for the water. I then added some black tulle to five the impression of water. This piece only took a few hours to lcomplete.

The second piece was my attempt to make a black and white landscape using just a little red. It didnt turn out great.....but I learnt from it.


Hi Girls
I have asked Julie to set the next challenge.
I am sorry it is a couple of days late.
Do you agree if we make this challenges 3 months not two?
If so it will be due on the 1st May.

Delia #9 Challange Black and White

Sorry I am late posting. I just forgot the dates.

 This is my black and white challenge. It is a queen size quilt. I made it with the fat quarters I was given in a black and white swap a few years ago. I added the bit of red to give it life.

I also make this centre with some of the scraps that were over.
This was fun making.
Keep stitching

I'm sorry this is so late. I was in Europe from mid Nov. to the beginning of Dec. & in Mexico in Jan.

It's a wall hanging done with machine embroidery (Kimono Art by M'Liss Rae Hawley). The hanging is done in cotton with a silk border. The thread is Sulky.
