    Black and white quilt pattern suggestions?

    I'm thinking about making a black and white quilt for my grandaughter's wedding but I just can't decide on a design. I am a fairly experienced quilter so I'm not afraid of a challenge. I have over year to do this so time is not a problem. Her wedding colors are going to be black, white and silver. Anyone got any ideas? Also I usually do scrap quilts. Maybe just black and white scraps? I just don't know.

    Black and White can be so elegant together. A few years ago I made a black and white Strip Twist -- a Bonnie Hunter pattern which can be found on here: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/strip-twist.html My black and white version can be seen here: http://knitnoid.files.wordpress.com/...striptwist.jpg.

    My favorite black and white is log cabin in any of its settings. You could use all kinds of black and white prints. It will look fabulous no matter the pattern you choose. I just love black and white quilts!

    Why are you leaving the silver out? Why not also find a black with a silver metallic thread in it so that you have all of her color scheme? I think that would be so much more
    reminiscent of her wedding day.

    I think you could use almost any pattern that you like. Right now lime green is my favorite accent color with black and white.

    I made a b&w houndstooth check quilt that is quite stunning. This picture shows a baby size, but mine is much larger.

    Thank you everybody for the wonderful ideas. I'm going to start collecting black and white now and start sewing in the spring. I love the idea of some silver in it. Maybe some Christmas fabrics will have just a little touch of silver that might work. I could use it as a small first border or a flange or on the label. The wedding will be in December 2013. So many ideas. I just have to make up my mind. Thanks again.

    I made a black and white sampler quilt for my DS and DDIL with the initials of their names in the center of the quilt.
