    The black and white quilt looks beautiful! I just finished the top of my first quilt ever and used black for the background. I like the way it came out, but one of the blues is a little too dark to really show up. I might try something similar with green and pink.

    I love black and white quilts! That love started early! I had a black and white bedroom when I was 14.....striped walls, and checked bedspread.....and then my mom let me paint some furinture red. Pretty progressive for the 70's, at least for me. LOL

    I am in the process of picking out fabrics for a new black and white quilt. Thinking of doing Eleanor Burns Day and night. The quilts you all have posted are beautiful!

    I have a black red and white quilt planned for myself. It will be my "learning" quilt - It will be a sampler of sorts...I can't decide on a pattern for it, so I'm going to do EVERYTHING! lol There are so many neat blocks and tricks and patterns I've seen on here and I love them all...so this quilt will be a sampler of sorts, for all of the blocks I've wanted to try but haven't yet because I'm compulsive and MUST finish something before playing and I just haven't had the time. I'm also going to use it to learn FMQ. This one is all for me and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I have about 14 yards of fabric to play with, some yardage, a lot FQs...it will be fun!

    Anyway...enough of my tangent. I love black and white with another colour. I'm not crazy about *just* black and white, though I have seen some striking ones.

    The Amish type quilts have always been some of my favorites. They use LOTS of black with bright colors for their quilts.

    Black & white are great together together! I love that stark contrast.
    I have made a few that I think turned out really pretty!
