Black and White Challenge
At my very first Minneapolis Modern Quilt Meeting (back in February), I learned about a challenge they were having. Everyone brought ten pieces of black and white fabric (from two prints) (each 3" x 20"). We each kept two of our own pieces and exchanged the rest. The challenge was open to any project, you just had to use black, white, and only one other solid color.
The big reveal was last night and most made beautiful quilts or pillows. Since I"m still pretty new to quilting (and I had limited time to devote to this challenge). I made this little dress for Gwyneth. It's a fairly simple design and I just sort of winged it.
The skirt is a bubble style skirt, made from the black and white fabric strips.
It's sewn onto a pre-made t-shirt and a simple sash is tied around the waist.
She loved the bubble skirt! (and pushing her belly out in the photos, "like Santa")
