    pictures of a quilt made with just two color fabrics? I have 2 beautiful pieces of fabric in my stash that I would love to make a lap blanket with. Has anyone done one using just two fabrics? Thanks for your time in advance. Warm Hugs, Janet

    Two color quilts can look amazing with the right pattern.

    The cover quilt in More Simple Quilts with Splash, Dash & Panache by Nicole Chambers is a great 2-fabric quilt. I haven't made this quilt yet, but I've seen it done, and it's on my to-do list.

    There are lots of quilts that look wonderful in just two colors - here's an antique/vintage Drunkard's Path that I bought on eBay and quilted.

    Other patterns are Ohio Star, Wild Goose Chase, Irish Chain, Orange Peel... gosh, your options are in the dozens, I think. :)

    Ohio star is one that I really like. Another is a 9 patch with a solid block between makes a nice quilt to show off your quilting. And the chain effect is nice. Happy Quilting :-D

    I did a quilt called Union Square and posted it on this site, it is Blue and white. Pick out you favorite pattern and just use your two colors.

    There's hardly anything prettier than a red and white or a blue and white.
