    Great question as my DD has requested a black and white quilt - I don't think that she means a solid black and a solid white though. Are your fat quarters prints of black and white?

    Any 2 color block should be striking in black and white.

    I just finished the top to a D9P in black white and threw in the color green to add something. The corners were in light grean or white, the center was green and the other 4 squares were black. I came out stunning. I am not a black and white person but I loved it.

    You are so right.......I just saw an Ohio Star that was done in two colors, red & white. It was so striking!

    I'm thinking of getting black and white and some red and doing a quilt with Northern Star blocks. Or maybe pinwheels

    Thinking Outside the Block log cabin is awesome for black and whites with a third color thrown in. Or the 10 minute block, again with a third color.

    How about doing a "search" on this board for black and white. Many show up. Also, add red or green with the black and white search. I have a few book marked.

    Ditto. My son requested the exact same thing--but with the majority of it being blacks. I am anxious to finish reading this thread and hopefully some will give us some great suggestions.

    If you don't want to get away from the black and white, what about a good deep gray for an additional color--------------tone on tone if you could find it.

    This is just a basic rail fence out of all kinds of black and white prints with random bright color triangles appliqued on. If she is up for a bit of color, this might be fun.

    I did a turning twenty from one of her later books. I used all greys with just one red block, for my DGS. I love the way it turned out. I have been collecting black/whites too. Don't know yet what I will do with them. Am thinking of adding something out of the box (for me), purple, orange, or green for just a touch of color.

    I can tell you what NOT to do. I just made a crazy black and white, and a dash of red. No one except me likes it. It did get a honorable mention in a quilt show, and the critque complimented me on the choice of fabrics. It was also ripped apart by a gentleman at the state fair, saying it was the uglist quilt he had ever seen. Just saying. It has 64 different black and white and 11 red.

    Ten minute blocks work up beautifully with red centers!

    I made for someone in the Boomeang 8 Sapphires group a black and white block with a bit of green. Bento box pattern. I think it is very nice and going to make a quilt for my daughter using the same colours. It is so fast to sew up. Just take a look on the web for the pattern and lots of picturesName:  IMG_0304.JPG

    Every time I think about a black and white quilt, I want to find a small piece of red, or green to place unobtrusively into the pattern...If you look closely, this fabric has reddish pinks...Somehow it seems to relieve the eye. So, I'm wondering if you have thought of that small addition....one fat quarter of another color tucked here and there as a flange or added seam in a block?
