I headed to my sewing room to shop my stash right after the challenge was announced. Considering how much fabric I have, I was a bit surprised by the paucity of black, white, or gray print fabrics. Here's what I found:
Some prints were too large. Some where more cream than white. Some didn't have enough yardage. And others I just couldn't part with. So, drum roll please... Here are my choices for the swap:
Alexander Henry's "Diamond Eye" from 2006 (vintage!) is on the left and American Jane's Pindot by Moda is on the right. And guess what?? I'm giving away a fat quarter of each print to a lucky reader!
Leave a comment with your favorite solid color to use with black/white/gray prints. And leave a second comment if you follow my blog to get another chance to win. I'll announce the winner of the fat quarters on Thursday, February 24th.
Stay tuned to my blog for progress reports. And be sure to check out my fellow Quilt Guilders as they blog about the challenge.

Good luck! I can't wait to hear about your color choices.
