New challenge...

...'cause I don't have enough to do...LOL. My red and black is coming along pretty well so it will be finished by tomorrow. More hand sewing little metal things on it, and then the binding. As I have done before, I expanded the size so was forced into the 'add backing to the backing' thing. It's getting to be a bad habit. But I had those little extra black and white pieces and it just seemed to be a waste to throw them away.

The challenge (from Quiltland Chronicle in the list of bloggers on the right)is to have someone else pick out five materials from your stash and you make a quilt with them. You can add colors and you can take away one of the five chosen for you. It can be any size but small is expected unless you just love the choice and have lots of the material on hand. In my house there is only one other person, dear husband. He headed for the craft room with a big sigh and 'I guess I could do that'. Now here is a partial assortment of colors and amounts available, and ...


...HERE is what he chose!!!

Do you think maybe he could have picked up one more box, if not five...nooooo, he picked up only ONE...and it was BLACK. Now I love black as you can tell from the quilt up at the top. But I am definitely going to have to add a color, probably pink, to keep this from being dreary.

Oh I did laugh ( and laugh) at that selection! Still at least they did not clash horribly! Thank you for playing along with my little game. I look forward to the result.

Hmmm, MEN!! I'm sure you'll do just fine, at least he didn't pick five fabrics that clash. LOL

Love the copper in the last post. Wow.
