    Being the newbie that I am, I am planning on my next quilt/embroidery blocks. How about the block embroidered in black thread, the border in white and black pattern, and another block of black material embroidered in white. Basically all done in black and white. Has anyone done a quilt in only black and white?

    There are many two color quilts. Black and white would work.

    Sounds like a new form of "red work". I'm not a big fan of red but I think I would like your colors.

    I will try to find it and get a picture to you.
    It was a lot of fun too.

    I just finished this yesterday and I need help.
    #1-Shouild I have another color within this top? Maybe in the border?
    #2-Do you see a couple of blocks that "stand" out and should I take out & fix or leave alone?
    I LOVE what everyone has to say, that's why I like this board so much and I really need help with this one.
    Advice or Opinions, PLEASE.
    Thanxs,
    Bev

    I did a quilt with black & white scrappy prints surrounding the embroidery. I did the embroideries in red but it would work in black.

    I love your idea of the black and white 'redwork'! I also love seeing the black and white quilts the other gals showed. I have so many projects in my head already that I am not sure I will be adding a b&w one soon but, I will look forward to seeing yours soon!

    There are plenty of examples of black and white quilts out there as it is a very popular theme. You can see a few at the link below:
