    Need ideas for three color quilt

    All --

    I am planning to make my daughter a quilt in her sorority colors of green, red, and yellow, with white. I have collected varying shades of batiks in these colors, but I haven't found the perfect pattern yet. I'd like something that feels young but not too modern (no asymmetry or anything like that). Ideas?

    Well, I love that quilt. Couldn't figure out how to get to a pattern though. Maybe I can just figure it out. It looks really good!

    adding white makes it a 4 color quilt.

    I'm doing a card trick with three colors, you could use a 4th color as a border. I printed off a pattern from quilterscache. Look at that site and maybe quiltville also.

    This is a very easy one using three colors

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

    My favorite 3 color quilt is on the front cover of Lynette Jensen's "September Morning." I don't know if this book is out of print or not.

    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Disappearing patch would be good.
    Look at Macia's web site...Boat load of block patterns. I usually look at the patters for the size of block I want to make. Have fun!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
