    I've been thinking of fabric colors for a quilt I would like to make for my youngest sister. Both her and my brother-in-law like blue. She says I have a great taste and will leave it up to me. I thought of blue and yellow together.
    Has anyone made a quilt with solid colors, just something like blue/yellow red/blue....

    Jacob's Ladder lends itself to monochromatic with an alternate. I did a green and white - should work with blue and white too.

    I try to use fabrics that read as solids as I dislike how flat the solids look. But I've done one-color and two-color quilts and loved them.

    I did one in 10 different shades of green from black background with bright lime green leaves to light background with dark green to light green with white flowers to a pale almost yellow green with medium green vines and various others in between.

    I haven't done a blue one yet, but have had a couple of requests to do so...someday it will happen.

    Most of the time I use blenders instead of solid colors, but it just depends on the quilt. I did one with bright pink, bright yellow and bright lime solids for sashing and cornerstones to go with a print that had those colors in it and I loved how it came out.

    I did a blue and yellow quilt for a wedding gift . It was done in a sampler design and it was done in rows.I alternated the blocks from blue to yellow and used every shade of those colors I could find I sashed and bordered it in a .blue and yellow floral.I chose a sampler look because I get bored making king sized and using a different design keeps me going.
