Black and White Fever Again!

...so I've got black and white fever again!  I had so much fun doing up this quilt using black and white's and knew I wanted to do another black and white quilt someday....and then it hit me yesterday!!  I'm so excited!  I've got another design I'm going to do up with black and white fabric....along with cactus green Kona and tangerine Kona. 

I've wanted to do a quilt for some time using the tangerine and green together and paired with the black and white I think it's going to really POP and give off the look I want it to! ...and black and whites are so much fun to shop for, still have a few more to find!!

I've also been thinking for sometime now about my Longarm quilting business.  I've decided to take on less customer quilts so I can spend more time on my patterns.  I wasn't sure I wanted to do this, but I've had such a great response with my ruler and patterns that it has made my decision an easy one.  I did both this last year and it nearly wiped me out!  I do want to say how much I do enjoy longarm quilting and again......I'm not quitting that entirely, just cutting back. ;o)

Christmas was great and very loud!!  I counted 10 remote control devices between my 5 kids and finally at about 10:30 pm Christmas night I said ENOUGH!...oh and clean up yesterday morning was a doozie!!!!

Less quilting when I have only just found you!! Oh drat, your quilting is such an inspiration.
Good on you though for doing what is right for you. I haven't seen anything like your rulers in New Zealand yet. I think my local quilting friends would be blown away by your ideas.

Oh this looks very interesting, a bit of spice and citrus splash, can't wait to see what you've got in mind for these fabrics with your ruler

I love the intense colors with the black and white prints. I imagine this quilt will be showstopper!
Good for you, changing things up so you won't be overcommitted.
