Black and White

Hello everyone,
I know, anyone who knows me might think I've gone bonkers as I have always made extremely colorful quilts and have been known to throw the most bright colors together. But you know what, I think although I still love color and will always make colorful quilts, I have really grown to like crisp black and white or neutral monochromatic color schemes lately and I think I will go more in that direction in the future.

Color palettes have been on my mind constantly and I will post about some ideas soon, but for now here is one of my recent black and white quilts. This one is a lap quilt or maybe large baby/toddler quilt or playmat.  I used a number of different black and white prints with some Kona Ash, my go to neutral shade, and I love the result.

I have also started to use black and white a lot with some minor splashes of color, like in this baby quilt. 

And I LOOOOOVE this quilt which used lots of Kona solids with some splashes of black and white. I think I really need to explore this a bit more as I love the effect and I can imagine this in a number of different color palettes.

What do you think? Do you like monochromatic color palettes or black and white quilts?

I have also started a number of other black and white quilts so watch this space.

Love of love,
