    I had made a single Irish Chain wallhanging years ago, hung at the end of a long hall beyond the foyer of a big old farmhouse. I don't think anyone ever came in that didn't comment how they loved the simplicity of the pattern. It was done in cobalt on a dove gray field, looked like old stoneware crockery.

    Works up fast, and very forgiving of mistakes, too.

    I never thought of the Irish Chain, but it would be stunning. I agree on that for sure :!:

    I also concur about the irish chain, it would look great with just 2 colors. I guess I am partial to that one tho. :mrgreen:

    Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for "shadow box". I have looked but can't find one. I'm still a novice at quilting so I hope it isn't too complicated. Thanks, Charlie

    I did a google and came up with a couple of links for you. I don't know if this is what you want or not. You might try to do your own search.

    Elaine, look at jumperefamily's avatar. It is a pillow, I think, using just red and white with an hour glass pattern. It is very striking and would lend itself well to your color choice. (I don't know how to find jumperfamily's avatar but she has posted quite a few messages.)
    Good luck! :wink:

    Someone, don't remember who, posted a picture of a quilt in two colors that was a drunkards path. It was beautiful! If you can do curves (O: that is.

    I think the storm at sea would look great in those two colors
