Turn traditional quilt patterns into more contemporary black and white quilt ideas. This block known as Monkey Wrench, or sometimes Shoo Fly, looks totally new when brights in the main block are contrasted with black and white fabrics in the backgrounds. In Lots of Dots, above, I used a variety of black fabrics with small white designs for the block surrounding the main design, and then the same fabric for the backgrounds, sashing and cornerstones.

It’s fun to play around with the different black and white fabrics to see which ones work best for the look you’re trying to achieve. Some read as lighter or darker than others, so it helps to try them out next to the bright fabrics you’ve picked out to see which ones play nicely together.

This simple block pattern is another great way to use up a collection of black and white fabrics. Because of the simple shape of the blocks, a wide variety of prints, stripes, plaids and dots would be perfect choices. Mix them all together to add interest. The tiny amount of red adds the perfect little spice to this quilt. If you choose to leave out the red, a solid white or black fabric would also be a good choice. Or you could turn it up a notch by using hot pink or bright orange. Play with the options to see what fits your style the best.

In Fire and Ice, my bargello-style quilt above, I used three related bright fabrics as the focal point of the composition. The contrast is heightened by using black fabrics with very little white in them right next to the brights, shading out to lighter fabrics with a little black in them. The contrast adds depth and interest to the piece.

Black and white quilt ideas are perfect to combine with a great color combination for baby quilts. In Rainbow Blocks above, I used bright novelty fabrics in a range of colors for the main design, set off by a chain of mostly black squares and a light black and white background. It’s a cheerful design that moves the eye around, and the novelty fabrics have fun images on them that children love.

Using just solid fabrics and an angular, but simple design, this quilt is the epitome of modern. The pattern is created simply by reversing the placement of black and white in alternating blocks. The simple diagonal line quilting really compliments the design of the blocks and keeps the look fresh and crisp. If you want to make a high impact (minus the stress) quilt, this pattern might just be the one for you. It would look good draped over a chair or folded at the end of a bed. It would even make a dramatic statement hung on a wall.

This simple two-block quilt comes with five size options. No matter where you want to use this quilt, the fabrics you choose will do the work on these simple nine patches and hour-glass blocks. Either two fabrics, or a whole collection of scraps will make this quilt a classic for years to come.

If you have a collection of black and white print fabrics that you don’t know what to do with, this quilt might be your answer. Simple strip piecing and an on-point layout give this quilt charm without needing any advanced sewing skills. The tiny pops of an accent color are perfect if you are trying to coordinate a quilt with a room. Choose the paint color or a prevalent color in the room for the tiny stars and you have an instant custom quilt. The stars used here are yellow, but they would be equally impressive in pink, red, lime or purple. 

If you’d rather start with a smaller project, mug rugs are a great idea! They don’t take much time or materials, and you can see if black and white quilt patterns with a touch of color appeal to you for a larger project.

The proportion of brights to black and whites is up to you. In her bargello quilt top above, Craftsy member Becky Botello uses mostly bright fabrics in the summery colors of lime green, yellow, orange and pink, set off by smaller areas of black and white prints for a totally different look.
