Palette of the Week | Black White Grey and Red

My grandmother's kitchen at one time had a black and white checkerboard floor, white cupboards and tile counter tops, and a red cast iron sink. I really loved the retro feel of that kitchen and spent many hours there watching her cook and bake. I was thinking of it today when I chose the fabrics for this palette of the week.

Of course, I threw in a little grey for good measure ...

Palette of the Week - Black White and Red

Row 1:
Quarter Dot in Black
Peacock Lane - Falling Flowers in Red
Poppy Lane - Small Floral in Black

Row 2:
Going Coastal - Sea Star in Red

Have any of these fabrics in your collection? Feel free to upload projects you've made using them in the I'm Just A Guy Who Quilts Flickr Group.


  1. Greetings from Tunisia! I just stopped by from Quilter Blogs to enjoy your blog and marvelous quilts. Your fabric choices are mind-boggling. It will take years for those designer fabrics to filter down the food chain into my local flea market where I gather my primary materials...ah well, such is life.
    best, nadia

  2. Love the Downtown fabric! And these are Husker colors and I live in NE so what's not to like.

  3. Fabulous colors! I love this combo so much that I am using them for my fall wardrobe - gray, black, white, and red!
