I am wanting to make a black and white quilt but seem to be having a hard time choosing fabrics.
I can find lots of black with white designs, but not alot of white with black designs.
I don't even have a pattern figured out yet. I was thinking something like a Turning Twenty but am leaning towards a Log Cabin.
I saw one and never book marked it that I liked so here I am ... Stuck!
I went to 3 quilt shops today and found 4 fabrics I liked...
Can anyone give me any input to spure my creative juices? I am Stuck!!!
Sorry for the long post but I have never had this much of a challenge picking or finding fabrics...
Thanks again Everyone!

My first thought when reading your post, was the log cabin pattern. Then you had already said it. I think it would be stunning in that type of pattern. You could use all of your black w/white fabrcis on one side of the block then your white w/black prints on the other side. Just my idea, good luck picking your pattern. :D

Are you adding a pop of another color? If so, I really like a trip around the world or many trips around the world. Even an irish chain or double irish chain.

that's cool Gail. I made mine with a pattern I made up- kind of a coins- short strips going horizontal with long strips- black, red, black, going vertical to break it up and give it a pop of color.

Here are some black and white log cabins to look at:


I love the idea of the charm squares. You'll get a fun, scrappy look!

Kirsten, when I made a black and white quilt for my son I spent over a year collecting fabrics. It is much harder to find black on white than the other way around. The only advice I can give you is to keep looking and collecting. Here are a few websites for you that have some with white backgrounds. Hope it helps you.

Here is the one I made for my daughter. It is called Three Bean Salad, cause the original pattern was in ruby, gold and olive green colored florals.

It was so easy, I made the top in one day.
