    help

    I need to make my son and his wife a quilt. She likes the colors green and brown. I am having trouble coming up with a pattern to use. Does anyone have any suggestions? All replys would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd at least mix some cream fabric in with those colors. rail fence, blocks on point, most anything would look nice. do they like modern, country, or anything else specific that would help you?

    what shades of green and brown. there are and can be some real nice color combos of green and brown maybe throw in some blue depending on the shades they like. there are lots that you can do. hunters star or a carpenders star. maybe post the shades or post a pic of the colors that you are thinking. also maybe batiks or tonals.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    I love green and brown too. I would think any pattern could be made in those colors.

    I just watch the new video from MSQC called The Merry go Round quikt. It looks hard but as usual Jenny makes it easy to do. I think it would look nice with green and brown circles with an off-white instead of white background fabric.

    how about Irish mist from the book "6 halves make a whole lot more"? I love that pattern, I made it it blues, oranges and creams.

    Winding ways would look great in a green and tan batik
