I too had collected white on black and black on white fabric, saw a disappearing nine patch with a red highlight and just loved it. Link attached below.
I made it using the basic primary colors of the rainbow....red, yellow, blue, green, purple. orange. It needs to be quilted and I can't find my picture, but will try to post later.
But another idea for you. The leftover black and white fabrics were cut into orange peel shapes and are ready to be made in to a orange peel quilt......when I get to it. sigh.....the list is long and time is short!

The disappearing 9 patch could use a variety of fabrics. I do like the zig-zag that felinefanatic posted.

Hummmm, can't find the specific pattern I was thinking about. I'll keep looking.

Very pretty! A striking quilt! Love your fabrics and how you used them. The solid red as a stop for the eye is brilliant!

There is a Black and White Blog Hop happening later this month. I'm sure you'll see lots of possibilities in that. So that you have an idea of what will be posted, here's the link to the original post about the hop, when the organizer was looking for bloggers. I know there will be tutorials and giveaways from many of the bloggers. https://createinthesticks.blogspot.c...ack-white.html

I love making black and whites (sold 2 this christmas!!) and I usually add a bit of a primary color. I had not thought about using a cream/beige and soft yellow. Yours is wonderful - oops, another idea for the idea board - it is filling up so quickly.......

Looking for suggested patterns. I am just a few projects away from wanting to start this one. lol
Gary, there is a blog hop starting the 21st through the 24th that is called black and white, you might check it out to see if you can find some inspiration when it starts.
