    3 fabric quilt ideas?

    Does anyone have any ideas for making a quilt with 3 fabrics. For some reason, I have 2 sets of 3 fabrics but no idea what to do with them. Something with large blocks and few pieces would be great! I already have 2 quilts started w/ small pieces and I'm looking for something that will give quick gratification!

    thanks

    You could make:

    - a chevron quilt with 3 different fabrics, either with HSTs, or strips.

    - a quilt with rectangular 4 patches

    - an irish chain quilt, either double or single with two differently coloured chains.

    - a disappearing 9 patch quilt

    - a disappearing 4 patch quilt, either with two different coloured blocks or interchanging the colours between two blocks (uhm...do you know what I mean by that?)

    Hmm...I'm sure there are many more!

    are they solids or pattern.. or both? I am working on a BQ2 and I am only using 3 fabrics. But I have 1 fabric that has a big print for the focus then 2 solids.

    Jennie from Missouri Star Quilts just did a tutorial on a double friendship star quilt that used only 3 fabrics. It looks great and seemed relatively easy to piece. Check for it on their site or on u-tube

    This was recently discussed. You should find a lot of good ideas here.

    This is an easy pattern. Be sure to go to the next page to see all the different ways it can be put together.

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    How about Hole in the Barn Door with the third fabric being the middle square.
