    Thanks everybody for showing your black & white quilts. Those contrasts really rock.
    I have different ones from past years. Some are very scrappy and some are the black & white tonals.

    Great quilts everyone! I also like white, tan and cream with very busy prints to tone them down a bit!

    Black and white both lend themselves to more graphic quilts -- and those photograph well, so it's not surprising that you find you like them when you spot them here.

    Some of the best design/quilting advice I ever heard, though I can't recall where I heard it: Make visual design decisions visually. In other words, go with what looks good, not with your sentimental favorite, or what you have most in your stash, or some kind of symbolism. I found that my quilts look much better when I sopped trying to make them be the recipient's presumed favorite colors, but rather went with what looked best, thinking of the quilt as a graphic design.

    I put a little black in almost all of my quilts.

    I like black & white with red for the accent color. The red is the pop color for me however, electric blue or green would also provide the same type of pop.

    I think quilts made with black are bold and beautiful. I have done two black and white ones.

    I made a quilt for my daughter's 21st birthday it was made of black and white squares with red applique hearts.
    for my son's christmas present, i used black and white leafy prints with green leaves appliqued on to them.

    I love black and white, but I always have to add some red. My favorite 3 color combo. I have noticed lately you see the black and white and then using a bright yellow or bright green as accent. I haven't tried that yet, but will probably in the future.

    Just started a hello kitty baby quilt and I'm using black in that. I think it looks great!

    That is so pretty. My beloved boss (who else can say that?) loves blue and yellow. I made him one once. And while he loved it, He would have crapped his pants if it even came close to this.
