    I am going to make a quilt for a wedding gift. The couple want blue and white. Can anyone direct me to patterns that look good with just two colors and they being blue and white?

    Thanks for the help

    How about a log cabin? Depending on how many blues and whites you have.

    I did Jacobs Ladder in 2 colors. Blue and white. Turned out great and is easy to do.

    This is a wedding quilt I am currently working on in light blue and brown (the couple's favorites). It's called Road Trip by Lehman Quilting.

    I did two hunters star wall hangings and a lap size and I didn't paper piece it at all. you just have to make sure that you get the shapes cut all the same size. your blocks might not come out to be exactly 12 1/2 but that is okay if you are doing only one pattern.
    Does it have to be all one shade of blue? what a bargello with lots of shades of blue and white?

    I would definitely use multiple whites and blues. That can go a long way to many different pattern choices. Don't think in terms of two colors or two fabrics - think in terms of two colors but using light, medium and dark. Good Luck and enjoy the process. They will love it. You can even ask them, would you like gold, black or another added to the blue and white or Just shades of blue with white.

    the other day I read a thread on this board asking about what quilt could be made for a wedding quilt, one of the posts was a blue and white quilt that was made of Jacob's ladder and Sarah's choice (these were the bride and groom's names) another suggestion was using 2 blocks with names of the states the b & g were born in.

    I made an Ohio Star pattern with just blue and white. Just in case this might be something like you are looking for...here is the picture. It is my first traditional quilt, and I am happy with it. It isn't a bed size though. You would need more squares for that.

    I also love 2 color quilts. The antique 2 color quilts are highly sought after. You can make just about anything- Ohio Star comes to mind but there are a lot more.

    I made a blue and white star quilt from Judy Martin's "Star Happy Quilts" - it's a great pattern
