    Got a good laugh when I read the last line. I'm sure it was supposed to be "It" but thanks for the laugh.

    I have seen both Teal and Yellow in black and white quilts. It does need to be bright.

    Two Kwik Quilters Trip Around the World is very fast to put together and almost no waste. For a full size quilt it would use 20 fat quarters.

    In MN we recently had the 2010 MN Shop Hop; the SE Section gave away 20 half yard cut bundles of black and white if you made it to all the shops in that section - some of the shops featured ideas to use your black and whites - I really liked the Blue Underground Studios pattern "A Bit Askew" it adds bits of color here and there; hopefully photo will show.

    Look into using a black batting....

    I made my daughter a black and dark purple quilt and used a beige batting and that was a HUGE mistake. Now the batting pokes thru the fabric and little pieces of batting are all over the quilt like lint. I wish the quilter would have told me to use black batting, but I never even knew it existed.

    I'm making a black and white block of the month quilt now. I hope to use bright colors in black for the borders. I saw one at a quilt show and it was beautiful.

I have looked at some and they all seem to waste so much of the fat quarter. And I want to add another color to it as well but I haven't decided if I should get a bunch of different fat quarters in that color (when I finally decide) or if I should just buy some yardage. Other than Red, which is definitely an option, what other color looks great? Thank you all for the help yet again.
    Red is my first choice, I have several black/white +red quilts.
    Bright Aqua would be my second choice. I only use a smidge of the red but that is all it takes for me.
    Show us the quilt when it is done. MNM

    I saved the same fq colors and added yellow, bkack and white. The pattern I used was for a king size and was "Block Party" pattern. I would try "Fractions" if you dont want anything too difficult.

    Our guild had a black, white challenge and one other color of your choice. I used Nickel Quilts' Auturmn Stretched Star. Inside black border. Borders are yellow with the waste triangles at the corners and center of borders. Sized for wall hanging.

    Our quilting guild exchanges block and we did a Black and White exchange and the guild designed a pattern for our exchange blocks. I have attached the pattern and a close up picture for the quilt I made for my daughter with red accents.

    This was my first time with a pic and pattern and I just discovered that you can download the attached pattern by click on the "download" word on top and bottom of my pic of the quilt. Sorry for the duplication.

    Georgia Peach your quilt is beautiful.

    Thank you all for the suggestions and the links. I am thinking maybe teal or hot pink. As for patterns now I want to use all of them. There are so many pretty choices.

    Oh, I love that one! Gotta do one soon.

    I have done several B&W quilts, but my favorite so far has been the Depression Block.

    Turning Twenty Again is also a fav of mine. What pieces are left from cutting I put in a ziploc bag for some fun doll quilts.
