    Help! I need a black/red/white twin quilt pattern.

    I need a twin size pattern for my soon-to-be 16 year old granddaughter and I've been going through all my books and magazines til I'm now totally confused and unsure what to do. I've been quilting about 2 years now and feel comfortable with easy to moderate patterns. This quilting board is fantastic and I will be so grateful for any help I can get with ideas. I think I have more trouble choosing patterns than actually making the quilt! Thank you in advance!!!

    Shirely, I made a red, white and black quilt: Wishing I Could Quit Work and Quilt Full Time!. The info on the pattern is posted on page 9 of this thread. You could make this any size you wish. Hope this helps.

    I made the Big Block Quilt by Black Cat Creations, however I inverted the colors. I did red and white instead of black and white and used black sashing. Good luck!!!

    You could do a three-color rail fence or a Disappearing 9-patch. I bet that would be stunning and sooooo easy.

    Times Three would be fun in those colors.

    The tube quilts from Missouri Star Quilt Co. would make up great in red/black/white. You could play with a number of layout options depending on where you put which color for the strips. If you do a search on this board for tube quilts you'll see lots options for playing with the pattern.

    All your quilts are beautiful and I really like the first and second pictures as good ones for red, white, and black. I'll see if I can find the pattern you referred to. Thanks so much!

    Teacup: I watched the youtube tutorial on tube quilts and that's awesome! Beautiful arrangements on something that looks so easy. That's what I like - easy to do but look hard! Thanks!!
