What's black and white and red all over?

The current challenge on Paula's Sewing Challenges is to show something made in your favorite colour/colours for sewing or quilting.

It's actually something I don't sew with often because it just doesn't fit into my house right now.  Funny thing since Mr.  Moose and I are both fans of it.
It's black and white (with red, or yellow).  I do have a rail fence quilt that I'll be doing soon in black and white with red accents, and Mr. Moose LOVES black and white with yellow so maybe we should change our plans for the bedroom and go nuts with black and white!

Regardless, here are some things I've made in black and white (and a little stack of B&W fabric).

Pillowcase for our oldest nephew.
Fat quarters for the B & W rail fence.

Some bats from a halloween quilt

A bag I made that I now use as a lunch bag for work.  I have exras of all of these fabrics and they'll be showing up in the rail fence as well.

So, there you have it, my favorite colours.

But wait, there's more:

Ok.  He's not exactly black and white and that isn't exactly red, but darn it, isn't he cute?

And, gratuitous food shot
Chocolate is almost as good as black, right? (Photo from  My version of this didn't look quite so perfect)


  1. Love all your black and white + red. The bag is just too cute - had to check your post out after seeing your bag on Paula's. And kittie certainly qualifies as a black/white love.

  2. Your little black & white bag is so cute. I see what you mean about liking it - but it not being your house colors. Someday I hope to make a bag - I'm sure it will be fun. I just need to make the time.
