graphic quilting

I was at the bookstore yesterday and I stumbled on all of these graphic quilt layouts in a book. 
There is currently a pretty hefty quilting project on my plate and these were really inspiring to look at while I'm working.
I love how bold they are in black and white.
The same book had some pretty colorful quilt tops made from these graphic patterns. 
All of the diagrams and pictures above came from this book, the Great American Log Cabin Quilt Book by Carol Ann Wien.
I also browsed through this amazing Hawaiian traditional quilting book. 
The book focuses on super intricate floral applique and bold color choices evocative of hawaiian quilting.
