    I have and I really like it. We're wintering in FL but will try to post a pic when we get back home.

    I have done a lot of black and white quilts. One thing I try to do in most of them is have a "small" pop of one other color - like yellow or red or pink or lime green. And right now I'm designing (in my head) a black, white and silver embroidered anniversary quilt in crepe backed satin. Do it! You'll be amazed at how stunning it is. And be sure to post a pic when you are done.

    Well, I did one. It's my avatar. Some of the quilting is black thread on white.

    Black and white quilts are extremely attractive. There's one in the November 2008 edition of Quilters Newsletter that is bow ties in a grid on point with a checkerboard background and wide border with applique bits and bowtie blocks at corners and centers. The challenge was to make the quilt 85% neutral with 15% color. There is a narrow red sashing in the center portion, and some of the color bits in the border are also red. There's a lot you can do with just black and white!

    I did one a year ago for my grand daughter. She wanted all black and white. I made the Just Can't Cut It by all Washed Up patterns. The quilt was really pretty but an other color with the black and whites would have been nice.

    I did a quilt in nothing but black and white and it is gorgeous. I actually decorated my guest bedroom in nothing but black and white and now my kids want their rooms redone that way. I wanted to do a bedroom that way for years and everyone loves it. the quilt is the highlight of the room.

    Looks good, but I like the black and white. I did one last summer that is just black and white and I love it.

    I think the black and white quilts are so stunning!

    A quick giggle about the use of terms like "Redwork", "blackwork" - - I have yet to ever have my embroidery machine tell me it can't sew it because I don't have the correct "color" in it!! - (I know, back to sleep!)

    Saw a quilt in a quilt shop which I thought was black and cream, that was pieced and embroidered. So beautiful. The quilt turned out to be a very dark navy. Still looked like black to me. LOL. Any how, I had to have the patterns. I wish I had a picture for you. Your choices will look beautiful.
