    I like using 3 fabrics. Sometims more fabrics make it too busy.

    I've also done the D9P with 3 fabrics several times. I love it when I want to make some quick doll quilts.

    I have photos on my flickr album here:

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you like the color combination, go for it.

    I haven't done the d9p yet in thre colors yet maybe someday. I found the pattern great to get rid of stash. I did this one for a baby gift and used 9 fast quarters. 39x52 if you add a border it would bake a great lap quilt. I used 5" sq.

    This is so funny! I just wrote to someone who sent a block like this in the Spring block swap, but she used 4 half square triangle blocks. She used two orange fabrics and a white on white and it's just lovely.Name:  D9 orange.jpg

    Here is my D9P that I did in VA Tech colors. It is 57 X 72 which is not as big as you want to make yours. But to give you an idea of amounts of fabric, I used a bit more than one yard of the orange, 1 2/3 yd. of maroon, and 1 1/4 of the white. I still need to cut my binding. I think I will go with the orange. The colors are not great in this picture. Not much sunlight today with the much needed rain that we're having.

    I like this pattern. We made them for Soldier quilts before I knew about D9P. I made one all in brown for DH and everyone loves it. He curls up under it in his chair. I slept in the chair last evening and it felt pretty good. It is really cold her in TN.

    Dina, although you have 3 fabric, you have lots of color and I really like that idea. I think I'm going to use your idea.

    I've really enjoyed seeing the beautiful quilts all of you have shown using only three colors. Thanks for sharing.

    Just realized I didn't give credit to tumrub who made that neat orange block I posted. I think the 1/2 square triangles make it even more interesting.

    I have made a few d9patch in 3 colors. I really like this pattern used with only 3 colors. I am currently making one with 4 colors and it is turning out ok. too. Not real far on it yet so it is too early to tell the outcome but I think it will look great.
