    A quilting friend is currently working on a gorgeous BW quilt - I'll find out the name of the pattern. It's super easy, something about BW sq w/a red accent. Sharp! Let me know if you're interested.

    I love this super fast jelly roll quilt, but I would add some red or another color to black and whites for that extra "spark". You can also search "jelly rolls" in the search feature and get lots of ideas.

    Someone had a black and white jelly roll on a few days ago and just pieced it like the link already posted here and it looked really nice together.

    I saw a small strip pieced quilt on here the other day, it may have been a baby quilt, that was just all laid out on the diagonal and came out really cute. Liked it much better than the ones that are just strips straight across or up and down.

    I did a strip pieced one that I sewed four coordinating strips together, cut on the diagonal and put back together to create a pinwheel/windmill effect. It was done in multicolor, but would look really good in black & white too. This was 2-1/2" strips.

    Another thought...would what you have lend itself to a bargello type arrangement? I've wondered about how a black & white one would look. Seems like it could be really cool looking.

    I don't know the name of the pattern rightoff hand - we had a horrible car crash and fire last night and haven't been to bed yet.

    The pattern that I am thinking about is kind of like a log cabin or courthouse steps, but you start with a square in the corner and build out. My first thought was to have the small square red and the black and white strips out from there.

    Courthouse Steps or Log Cabin? I think either of these would be absolutely gorgeous :)

    Send those B&W strips to me and forget about making a quilt. Oh, wait, I guess that didn't address your question. (I'm collecting B&W fabrics for a future quilt.) At a local quilt show I saw a collection of quilts that were made in a "black and white plus one color" challenge. Each quilt was stunning -- there was B&W with lime green, B&W with pink, B&W with purple. So, my suggestion is use any pattern with a few additions of color for "pop" factor.
