    Adding a zing of color will make the quilt more modern looking vs traditional.

    I did one of those as well. I think the 3rd color helps with the optical illusion.
    Oh yes, it sure does. I think the color addition is just beautiful and makes it so alive.

    I think B and W alone are fine as long as the quilt pattern has movement and fabric has pizzaz. If not, add a third color to add interest.

    I liked the winner's circle in two colors. Also the double Irish chain is perfect for two colors. There are probably lots of other patterns that are just as great.

    I did this too but didn't want too much of a zinger so I chose a dark red black.
    Lady Jane, I love your inspector!

    My long arm quilter daughter recently did a black and white for a customer. They wanted a little 'zing'. So she quilted it with red thread. Wow! sublte but spicy. The customer loved it.

    Here's another fun way to use black and whites. I have wanted to make a Baltimore Album quilt for a while. There will be a total of 9 hexagonal blocks with half triangles to fill in the gaps.

    I'm making a black and white modified rail fence quilt as a bedspread for my son. He only wanted black and white, otherwise it would be "too quilty". But when I pointed out I could put a little red in that, he thought it would be cool. But I've seen some just black and white quilts that are amazing.

    I've done an all black and white quilt and was very pleased with it as were the recipients. Now I'm doing another one and am thinking I should add a third color just because of the layout and blocks in this one. But do what the quilt tells you to do........you will know if you need a third color or not.

    Pink used to be my favorite color to go with black/white. Now I am hung up on bright lime green.

    Sometimes it's hard to choose between the two. ;-) These are 2 Mystery quilts (from, like, 7 or 8 years ago).

    Think teal! That is a great AZ color and it looks wonderful with the black and white

    I think black and cream/tan is beautiful all alone. I think I would put a "zinger" in a black and white though.

    I did a black and white (with subtle purple) but added a couple "zingers" in the form of a small triangle of color, less than 3/4 of an inch in size, at a few corners of the blocks...maybe 5 or 6 in total... in red and in yellow....just enough to grab your eye and pull you into the whole quilt experience! Go for it! but keep it small.

    I love your wonky trees! Did you just create those or is there a pattern or template. Your quilt is beautiful!
