Six Petal Flower Motif

Ah...black and white!

I have always loved black and white together.

Think Coco Chanel...

...her classic black and white suit with pearls.

Simple yet stunning.

Maybe my next project will be a simple black and white throw.  

I'm actually designing trying to design my own Six Petal Flower motif to use.

The popcorn stitch here makes the flower pop.

This throw will be mainly white with little pops of black.

What do you think of my motif?

Have you seen the movie "Coco Before Chanel" with Audrey Tautou? 

 It's the story of Coco Chanel's rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world.

  1. Like minds are working in similar ways, once again. I've been playing with black and white in granny square land within the past 24 hours. Rather than my plain ol' granny, I like it better in your cute motif!

  2. Sandy,
    Black and white combination is a favorite of mine. It's so elegant, and I like the contrast of it. Black and White photos are also my favorite. There is nothing more beautiful to me than a black and white photos. I would love to see how your throw turns out.
