They are all stunning. Have to say the Asian print is my favorite. However the black and white must have taken so much work. You did beautiful work on each design. Yet each is so different in its own way!

Thank you for all of your nice comments.
For those of you who asked, I do not know the name of the black and white quilt, nor did I have a pattern for it. I did just wing it and figure it out on my own from seeing a picture of one like it on the net. But I can tell you it was one of the easiest quilts I have made! Not hard at all!! I can tell you kind of how I did it.

I used 6 different fabrics for the triangles -
One solid black
One solid white
Two black with white prints
Two white with black prints

I am sorry, but I have no idea how much of each fabric I used, but I think it was less than 1 1/2 yards each, maybe even about a yard.

I cut strips of the fabric 2 1/4 in wide by WOF
Sew the strips together in order from darkest to lightest.

Cut the strip pieces into 60 degree triangles. You will get one triangle with the solid black as the base of the triangle, the the next triangle cut from the other side with the solid white as the base of the triangle.

I just kept making triangles until I had enough to make the size quilt I wanted. Sew the triangles together according to what my quilt looks like. Make long strips of the black based triangles and then long strips of the white based triangles and then sew the strips together. At this point, the two ends of the quilt will be zig zagged. I was almost going to leave my ends like that but decided that it would be faster and easier to put the borders on if I just cut the ends off straight. Next time I make this quilt, I would like to try to leave the ends ziggy and see how that works.

I added a 1 inch border of black, a 1 inch border of teal, (red, or blue would look great also) a 1/2 inch border of white, then a 3 inch border of black.

I can't tell you how much of each fabric I used, because I just used fabrics from my stash.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions, let me know!

Stealing the black and white. So very cool! I may try red and white instead. Great work all around. Love the inspiration.
