Jackie KunkelMy name is Jackie Kunkel and I’m the author of Splash of Color: A Rainbow of Brilliant Black-and-White Quilts. This book was such a joy for me to create. I LOVE black and white fabrics and everything bright, bold, and rainbow-like.

My love for mixing pops of color with black and white fabrics goes way back. In 2008, I began The Black and White Quilt Challenge Project for quilters who shared that love. You’ll find lots of inspiration there, as we had 100 contributors!

My love for these fabric combos continued to grow. That led me to draft a proposal for a book with the same focus, and that led to Splash of Color!

I’ve collected black and white fabrics over many years and they are plentiful in my stash. When you pair bright fabrics with black and white they really POP! In Splash of Color I talk about which kinds of prints and colors work well together, which don’t, and why.

The first quilt I made for Splash of Color was “Lava Lamps.” This is probably my favorite quilt, as there are so many design possibilities within just two simple shapes.

If you look closely, you’ll see a variety of multicolor prints on black and white. Because of the distinct black and white backgrounds, it’s easy to create a fantastic design.

One vision I had for Splash of Color was to have my quilting friends participate. I asked each one which pattern she’d like to make and then gave each of them guidelines for making an alternate version. For “Seeing Spots,” I gave my friend Fran the template and asked her to create a black, white, and rainbow quilt.

She did. But instead of simply following my original layout, she came up with an incredible new design using the same colors and shapes! She simply changed the value placement to turn a hexagon quilt into a strippy diamond design.

There’s a lot to see and learn in Splash of Color, and a lot of fun quiltmaking to be had. Enjoy, and happy quilting!

    —Lin on September 25, 2015
  • I love to do black and white with a splash of color quilts. Unfortunately, I have very little black or white in my stash, but I do have lots of color. This book would be an amazing addition to my quilting bucket list of quilts to do. Thank you for your generous offer!

    —Colette on September 25, 2015
  • Love the quilts in this book. My stash is huge and mostly all colors except black and white. I need to rethink this. It would be great fun to make one of the Splash of Color quilts.

    —D. L. Grzybowski on September 25, 2015
  • I had just started collecting black and white prints for a quilt such as these, but I need the book!

    —Susan on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is mostly colorful batiks. I don’t have many black or white fabrics. The quilts in the book look gorgeous. I guess I’ll have to start collecting some blacks and whites. Who would have thunk.

    —Cindy Schultz on September 25, 2015
  • I have a good selection of Black and Whites as I needed many for my first WV quilt which featured black and white pictures pertaining to WV, like a coal miner and an old mill, etc.
    I more than likely have a pretty good rainbow of colors too. This book will surely have some great ideas for these color selections.

    Donna on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is heavy on a rainbow of colors and white. I do have some black left over from when I was doing a lot of pieced clothing.

    —Kathy on September 25, 2015

    —Karen L. on September 25, 2015

    —Tracine on September 25, 2015
  • A rainbow of colors is in my stash! I like to have lots of choices to pull from when making something. But, knowing that someday I’d like to make a black & white quilt, I have collected several yards of each, keeping them in a separate pile. Someday soon, I will get to it.

    Gail G on September 25, 2015
  • I am heavy on black and white AND bright colored fabrics. Though black and whites are always my fall back group when I’m looking to add to my collection and I can’t decide on anything else. This book would be a great way to use up some of my stash.

    —Cyndi on September 25, 2015
  • I am definitely a color girl. I do have some blacks, and not too many whites. This book would sure be inspirational to me.

    —Dianne Gillin on September 25, 2015
  • In fact, I am getting ready to start a black/white with a pop of red quilt.

    Judy Hudgins on September 25, 2015
  • I have more brights than black and white fabrics but would love to collect more to make one of these beautiful quilts.

    —Sheila on September 25, 2015
  • Id say a rainbow of colors, I really like the look of black and white on the color though!

    —Sunnie on September 25, 2015
  • Nice way of using all your stash

    —sonia on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is heavy in a rainbow of colors. But I just finished a quilt in black and white prints for a nephew. So, I need to find some projects to use up those black & white prints by adding some color. This book looks like the inspiration I need.

    —Suzanne on September 25, 2015
  • Dear Martingale Press – WOW you know how to publish a book on color! Thank you Jackie for the vivid contrasts. I usually collect "novelty" prints – but love WORD fabric in black and white.

    —Beverly on September 25, 2015

    —Joanne Scott on September 25, 2015

    —Pat D on September 25, 2015
  • i love the pops of bright color with the black and white. i have a lot of low volume fabrics that would work withe bright solids i also have. thanks for the chance to win.

    —carolyn montgomery on September 25, 2015
  • I’m definitely a rainbow girl, but looking at beautiful Amish quilts with bright colors set against a black background has made more interested in B&W quilts.

    —Suzanne on September 25, 2015
  • I never seem to have black and white in my stash when I need it. Time to start collecting.

    —Liz F. on September 25, 2015
  • I don’t have an excess of black and white prints but I have a ton of colors. I’ve always wanted to make a black and white quilt but could not decide on one color to provide the pop, as all the black and whites I’ve seen so far do. Incorporating a rainbow is just what I’ve been looking for. Thanks!

    —Kathy Renz on September 25, 2015
  • Rainbow brights have been my favorites, so I have a good collection of those. The black/white bin is growing, so this would be a great way to make a dent in both. I love seeing the alternate colorways.

    —Mona on September 25, 2015
  • Lots more color but black and white are aptly represented!

  • My stash has a lot more colour than black and white, but I did start getting some black and whites for a future project. Looks like this will be it!

    Andrée on September 25, 2015
  • I love a rainbow of colors.

    —Sue M on September 25, 2015
  • My stash really is a rainbow of colors. Everything from brights to repros. I love to set them off with black. But I can always use a book to help me organize them!

    —Sue H on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is primarily a rainbow of colors. The contrast of black and white is so dramatic, I’m thinking I should start collecting a B/W collection now!

    —Joanne Larson on September 25, 2015

I keep dreaming of pairing these beauties with Moda Marbles. Soon I will be dreaming of these quilts. lol Maybe if I am lucky I will have the dream under one of the quilt patterns in this book.

    —Barb Bunz on September 25, 2015

  • Have always wanted to make a black, white and red quilt. Have plenty of black and white prints, but have just started looking at the reds. Seems I’ve been limiting myself without knowing. After seeing these wonderful quilts I’ll be revisiting my stash with a different eye…

    —Sheila on September 25, 2015
  • I have been collecting blacks and whites .. Oh how I could use this book to quilt with my stash!

    —Mary on September 25, 2015
  • Thanks for the fantastic ideas and a chance to win your book! My stash
    contains lots of rainbow colors and I have also been collecting black and white for years – this book is perfect!

    —Carole on September 25, 2015
  • Doing a little snooping in the ole stash, and it seems I have a lot of black. I love the hourglass quilt. Thanks for the chance at winning.

    Nancy on September 25, 2015
  • I have more colors than black and white, but I am collecting black and white slowly but surely to make a black and white quilt. I like the mixes of black and white with the colors so I may change my mind on that choice if I win this book.

    —CindyM in Oregon on September 25, 2015
  • I have a LOT of black & white fabrics, they are my favorite background for bright colors. They make the colors pop even though the background has it’s own designs.

    —connie b on September 25, 2015
  • I have more of a rainbow of colors but have been actively searching for black on white and white on black prints as they are so fun to work with. Love the striking quilts in your book!

    —Marge P on September 25, 2015
  • I love brights and have a collection of Musical black and white fabrics. This post has given me ideas of what to do with them. This book is delightful.

    —Rose-Marie on September 25, 2015
  • I have been organizing my stash….Wow! I think I have a small fabric store living in my home!

    —Jean on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is laden with colors, mostly very bright prints and solids. However, I never pass up a good black or white or red or any combination print.

    —Betty on September 25, 2015
  • My stash is a rainbow, but several years ago I collected black on white and white on black prints for a project I’m no longer interested in. I hadn’t decided how to use them until I saw this book. I love the designs and color ideas!

    —Lorna on September 25, 2015
  • Lots of traditional prints, but have been collecting more batiks and lately started to add fun black and white prints. What a fun book!

    —Marie on September 25, 2015
  • Lots of color in my fabrics — esp. red and orange.
    The quilts in this book are great — love the look of them
    and they give me some new inspiration.

    —Dorothy M on September 25, 2015
  • I’ve just returned home from a quilt show and, for the first time, my purchases haven’t included blue!

    —Helen Lawrie on September 25, 2015
  • My stash contains a lot of different colors, but predominately earth and fall tones. Those are my favorite, but since I am making quilts for all my family members (25) for Christmas this year, I’ve had to step out of my comfort zone and buy ones that I would not normally chose. Good thing I started a year ago!!

    Judy Pennington on September 25, 2015
  • I’ve done one black and white with many colours quilt many, many years ago for my son who collects penguins. I featured as many different coloured stars as I could think of with the centre square of each star either black or white and featuring an appliqued or pieced penguin.

    thus I have many leftovers of both black and white and recently have been thinking it’s time to resurrect them. Great ideas in this book!

    —Elaine on September 25, 2015
  • Most of my stash is a variety of colors, but I do have a small bin of black and white prints. I have made a black and white quilt, but never one that incorporates color in the mix. Another item for my bucket list!

    Barb Johnson on September 25, 2015
  • I have a rainbow of colors in my stash. I recently got some grey fabrics, and look forward to working with them.

    Lynn Whinery on September 25, 2015
  • My fabric library seems to be heavy on black prints. I only have a few bright multi-colored prints on either white or black background. Love the pop of color in the projects shown in the Splash of Color book.

    —marlene on September 25, 2015
  • Rainbow of colors but believe me, I have my share of black and white fabrics. Just love to make scrappy quilts.

    —Kathy in IN on September 25, 2015

  • Due to a fire in which I lost my fabric stash two years ago, my stash is very small, but, I did fall in love with a jelly roll of black and white that I just brought home last week. Your book is really timely for me.

    Evelyn Wade on September 25, 2015

    —Sandra Miller on September 25, 2015
  • I have every color of the rainbow! However, since I made my oldest granddaughter a black and white quilt for her High School Graduation, I do have a real good supply of black and whites, because, of course I had to have a huge variety to choose from for her quilt!

    —Linda Taylor on September 25, 2015

    —Judy Forkner on September 26, 2015
  • My stash is pretty much all color. This book would be soooooo helpful to me, especially the part about which black and white prints work with which colored prints. I need to learn how to pick low volume and low volume tone on tones (and then to add some to my stash, shhh…).

    —Linda Collum on September 26, 2015
  • Along with every color of the rainbow and more, I’ve been adding black and white fabrics to do a B&W with a splash of color. I almost have enough–or is that even possible? It seems there’s always an irresistible new design I HAVE to have.

    —Suzanprincess on September 26, 2015
  • Color for sure! I don’t think i have ANY blacks!

    Deb on September 26, 2015
  • Although my stash is a rainbow of colors, I am heaviest on blues. I love fabrics that have movement, but read solid from a distance. I am not that great with color, so, although I love the large prints, I don’t have the confidence to use them in quilts. But black and white with pops of color….THAT I can do!

    Juanita on September 26, 2015
  • I have a rainbow of colors, although I started my first black and white with a color added recently and am excited to do more!

    —Nancy on September 26, 2015
  • I took a class with the author of Caliente Quilts several years ago and was inspired to use black and white fabrics with a collection of bright Guatemalan textiles. The black and white prints really make those bold colors "pop". It is my most satisfying quilt so far! Luckily my stash of black and whites has expanded even more since then so I am eager to see your new book.

  • Bright, beachy colors in bold prints and batiks best describes my stash. I use black, white, and grey backgrounds usually in tone-on-tone prints, rarely solids. I began quilting in 1992 and created my own "modern quilt movement," it just didn’t have a name. It was the way I saw quilts.

    Marlene Clausen on September 26, 2015
  • I’d say my stash is 70% colors, but I have begun to search out black/white prints for something different. I love how the b/w mixed with the colors adds such a unique abstract look.

    —debra lee on September 26, 2015
  • I have lots of color and lots of black and white so would love to see more uses for stash!

    —Lisa S. on September 26, 2015
  • I used to stay away from black and white but since my granddaughter asked for a quilt with black and white background, I am a convert. In fact, I am now working on 2 other quilts with black and white backgrounds.

    —Esther on September 26, 2015
  • My stash is mostly full of rainbow colors, mostly florals, I have a very small selection of white and black prints, but seeing the amazing quilts in Jackie’s book makes me want to buy more soon!

    —Amanda Best on September 26, 2015
  • I am afraid my stash is a rainbow. I love Jackie’s quilts and I have not tried a lot of black and white and color quilts.

  • My stash is a combination of black, white, and bright colors. Love this book!

    —Eileen on September 26, 2015
  • I have bold bright colors, hardly any pastel, but sadly, not much black prints or black and white. I do have shades of white, and off-white, which I think goes with anything.

  • I have a small collection of black and whites and lots of fabrics of all different colors. I love the combination of the colors with black and white!

    —Becky G on September 26, 2015
  • My stash is a rainbow. I have made a black and white quilt before, and it came our sharp. I used tonal colors which popped out but did not detract from the prints.

    —Diana O. on September 26, 2015
  • My stash is more rainbow but with little black and white. I need to change that.

    —Joan on September 26, 2015
  • all 3 , but I guess the least would be black, but I have yardage of a black print that I haven’t had the right pattern for that would be perfect for one of the books quilts.

    —Tonya on September 27, 2015
  • Oh gosh, those quilts are so eye candy to me. Love the colors and designs. I try to have all colors but usually run short of some. I’ve made a black and white wall hanging but that’s it.

    —Claire Ross on September 27, 2015
  • I love bright colors and probably have enough black and whites that I wouldn’t have to buy anything to make one of the quilts in this book. Lava Lamps looks like fun.

    —Linda on September 27, 2015
  • Heavy on rainbow, but I do have some black & white. Then there’s the bin of stripes, the bin of florals, the bin of Flourishes, the bin of….. You get the picture. Too many fabrics and not enough time. LOL

  • I love the bright colors with the black shades.

    Nancy volmer on September 27, 2015
  • The first quilt I ever made was a black and white one with red accents. I loved it and so did everyone else in the class! I have been buying black and whites ever since along with my favourite colours but didn’t have many ideas as to how to work with them. Thanks to your new book there is hope that I might be able to use them in one of your new quilts. It would be fantastic to have a copy of your book so I could make one. Thank you for the chance in your giveaway!

    —Cindy Dahlgren on September 27, 2015
  • My stash has a rainbow of color. But I do have a box of blk/wh prints that I found at a quilters estate sale. Just need to decide on a pattern & this book might help.

    —Pam on September 27, 2015

    —Leigh Throckmorton on September 27, 2015
  • I sure love the look of the black and whites with the brights. I need more I guess to make one of these lovely designs.

    carol on September 27, 2015
  • Definitely a rainbow of color, but this book has me wanting to collect B&W fabrics!

    —Rebecca on September 27, 2015
  • Love lava lamp – never seen this block put together this way and it is fabulous!!!

    Susan the Farm Quilter on September 27, 2015
  • Rainbow is by far the most collected, but have several shelves of black and white and just finished a black and white and red quilt.

    —Rosalie on September 27, 2015
  • My stash is pretty balanced out except for the blue section. Way too much in that color and I am currently working on a blue and beige scrap quilt to use up some of the grayed down blues. I do love to collect black on white fabrics and am also working on a rainbow scrap quilt with these black on whites. So fun.

    —shellie purcell on September 27, 2015
  • My stash is mostly solids but after seeing all of this inspiration, I think I will be adding more prints. Thanks!

  • I have many colors, lots of white, but only a few blacks and greys.

    Nancy on September 27, 2015
  • I haven’t many B&W or bright fabrics but it’s a good reason to change that, I like all the projects.

    Béatrice on September 27, 2015
  • I have mostly colours I have to confess although my colour wheel is by no means complete! I’m always drawn to blues of various shades and have to force myself to buy colours like orange and yellow which I feel little affinity with, unfortunately. I do like the way all of the rainbow works with black and white as shown in the pictures from this great book and think that might well be the way to go!

    —Suzanne on September 28, 2015
  • love the depth you get with the black and white. Looks like a great book!
