    Black & white modern quilt

    My cousin wants a "black & white, modern quilt". I love color so this really blows my mind. I'm thinking about either a Chevron or this.

    Have you made one of these or a "black & white, modern quilt"? How did it turn out? Thoughts?

    I love b/w quilts. Your 2nd choice would make me cross eyed! There are some great 2 color quilt images if you Google 2 color quilts and click on the images option.

      I've never made one, but just saw one at the local quilt shop in black and white prints; it was a disappearing 4-patch. Also a lady in my sewing group had one that had hourglass blocks and alternating squares. They both were nice, but I would have put some red in both of them. I like color too!

        I've not made either of those. The second one makes my eyes go crazy! LOL

        Here is another one that is pretty and looks like it would be easy. You could do this without a pattern to follow. http://quilting.about.com/od/picture...ight-Quilt.htm I think the black and white prints of various print sizes really makes this quilt interesting.

            I would get dizzy and sick looking at the second one. Lots of cool modern quilt patterns out there. Just do what Terri said and look at 2 color quilts. I think something like a window pane or jr around charms is very modern looking, depending on the fabrics you use.

                  I'm really liking the Chevron.

                  What about a houndstooth?

                        Here's one I made a few years back. It's called "Monterrey Medallions" by Atkinson Designs (Terri Atkinson- the Yellow Brick Road quilt lady). This is the challenging version but there is also an easier version. I'm making the latter for my sister from scraps. The book is out of print but many quilt shops still have books available. Don't bother with Amazon ($63 lol).

                          um, the second one is making me want to drink. lol I like the chevron or the D9P with todays deal. Or a Layer cake in the same pattern.

                            You could also make a Jelly Roll Race quilt with just black and white and choose modern fabrics and I am sure there has to be a black and white JR out there somewhere....mine turned out looking "very sophisticated"...at least that was the comment I got when I gave it to my nephew last Christmas!

                              Here are a bunch that I have found on Pinterest. Funny that you are looking for a black and white pattern because I am making my hubby's uncle one for Christmas only I'm adding a little red. The last one on the list is the one I'm leaning towards but that could change.
                              I'm sorry that I have to agree with the others that the second quilt you showed us would not be a first choice quilt that I would want to cuddle up with...especially if I was not feeling well...makes me dizzy..LOL.
                              Good luck and let us know what you decide to do!
