    Three color/fabric quilt pattern

    I bought five fabrics which I love from Moda's 3 Sisters Grace line. I have two brown, two dark red and one cream. I was originally going to do a take 5 but I don't think there is enough contrast between the two browns and two reds. I really love star quilts but I'm a beginner and I'm certain I'd loose the points. I do have Atkinson Designs Lucky Stars and thought about doing that but I've not seen a 3 color quilt. Thanks!

    I've done lucky stars and it is a great pattern but I don't think it would work with just three colors.

    even if i was to do a 3 color quilt, it would be 4 or 5 browns and a half dozen different reds and a big assortment of cream/ecru/beige.... the eye needs movement to appreciate each part of the canvas...if everything is exactly the same shade, it gets flat real quick... i use the same tones for many color choices, but many shades of the same tones...

    Thank you for confirming what I suspected. I have a hard time picking out fabrics period, so having these 5 fabrics was a big step for me.
