Back a modern pattern with gray or any other solid color to add something special to a modern quilt top like this one. We love the geometric shapes of black that pop against the white background.

If you want to lighten up the stark contrast of a black and white quilt, add in varying shades of gray. Use triangles to create X shapes.
