    If they are all different - do a Sudoku quilt. I made a lap quilt for my niece-- one of the fat quarters had a little pink in it so I used some pink as an inner border and then black as the outside. On the back I used the leftover fat quarters as they were and just had big blocks using black rick rack to hide the seams --- she loved it!

    Show Me Your Fat Quarters And I'll Show You Mine by Grizzly Gulch. Then add a pop of color around the three focus blocks and for the outer border.

    Use the black and white as backgrounds and machine applique your maple leaves in fall colors on it. That would be amazing to see finished.

    I am planning one of these for my daughter who is a black & white decorator... I'm going to have her pick out the center fabric (she has green accents in her bedroom and red in her living area) and then use my black & white stash for the rest. I've loved every D9P I've seen using black & white with a spot of something else.

    My GD made a Square in a Square with different B/W prints and a different color of Moda Marble Swirls in the center each block. It turned out great for a first quilt - or for any quilt.

    The Turning Twenty books are great and you use 20 fat quarters for them. I made a black and white quilt out of half square triangles. No pattern necessary. All different prints. I hope you meant your quarters were different patterns and not solid.

    I just finished a Turning Twenty again - that used the 20 fat quarters to frame blocks of other fabric which had 20 machine embroidery designs ( you could substitute a focus fabric instead ) and it was spectacular! I strongly suggest you review the Turning Twenty books and find one you like............the black and white will be beautiful!

    I made a Pointless Wonder with b&w. i used red for the sashing. This is an really easy pattern. You stack FQs, slas according to directions. Move pieces round, etc. each block calls for 1 FQ with each star containing parts of several fabrics. You can google pointless wonder quilt to find the pattern.

    Yes thanks everyone for the wonderful ideas and was wondering what a Carpenter's Wheel would look like in black and white on white with maybe a yellow and black borders. Kicking around that idea too.

    Quilter's club of America is doing a mystery quilt right now that used 20 FQs. Maybe you would like to check that out.
