Everywhere I look

... I see another cute little project or challenge that I want to do.

This time, it's Pat Sloan's 2010 Black and White in Paris Challenge.

Black and White. In Paris. How could I resist?

So, I signed up and Pat sent me this in the mail:


How cute is that? The polka dots. The yellow. Those buttons and ric-rac. And that postcard for inspiration. (That in itself was enough to make me jump at this.)

The challenge is, using the items above (except the postcard), to create a 30"-40" square quilt. I get to design my own using any method I like, but it must be inspired by Paris and it must use the items in the kit.

Quilts finished and posted by April 15 will be entered in a contest.

I think I'll make this for my friend, Sandi, who is also my travel partner. Her birthday is April 22 - wouldn't this make a nice gift?

I love those fabrics and it makes it nice that you already have someone to give your design to when you are finished. Good luck with the contest.
