Love those Black and White Fabrics

I hate to think about how many individual fabric collections are tucked away inside my stash. Let's see, there are the batiks (of course) and the oriental prints, the juvenile prints, the brights, the taupes............and the black and white prints. I have been collecting black and white prints for a long time and have been designing all kinds of black and white quilts in my head. I have actually made a few. Two of them were in a previous post (Quilting for the Grands..Part 2)  Those would be Aidan's "Off Kilter" and his "Baby Nines."

They may not be technically Black and White quilts because of the color, but I think at least a splash of color really makes a Black and White Quilt special. 
This is my collection of Black and Whites.  I told you I have been collecting them for a long time! 
I pulled out all the Black and Whites recently so I could make a baby quilt for a little one due in just a few weeks.  We don't know the gender so I thought this would be a fun quilt and work for either a boy or a girl. I finished putting the top together today and have not decided how to quilt it yet.  This is just a little different take on a quilt from the book "New Cuts for New Quilts" by Karla Alexander.
Right now I have a plan in my head for a quilt using a star block and a square-in-a-square block, and adding the splash of color in connector blocks.  The idea is from a great book which I have used in the past, "Thinking Outside the Block" by Sandi Cummings.   I have a friend lined up to quilt this one for me because I really want to have it finished in time to give as a Christmas gift -- this year!   (Also because she, Angela, does gorgeous work.)  So....this is all I have done, so far.  But I am confident it will be done in plenty of time.  For one thing I'm inspired and for another thing.....Christmas is coming in a hurry!

Black & white with a touch of color has always been one of my favorite combinations. I have a large collection of B&W scrapbooking papers. I especially like the last quilt you shared, and the selection of 3 blocks. Perhaps...when I have another grandbaby to quilt for...

they are all great quilts. I can't wait to see what you graphic one looks like completed. I love the block with the colored strips in it. Makes me want to get in there and go through my b/w fabrics. I swear they are multiplying in the closet as we speak.

I love the angled corner blocks on the 4-patch! It looks very three-dimensional on my screen, like I'm looking down into a box, and the borders are the sides.

Sandy, I love your black and white with color. You are going to make me look like a slacker with all your finished UFO's. I know I'd better get busy. Hope you are having a wonderful vacation and hitting lots of quilt shops. Dar

Knowing you and your quilts, everything you stitch up is wondeful. Enjoy!
