    Eleanor Burns has a great book called Day & Night. You can use either 2 or 3 colors.

    Anyone considering the Hunter's Star should check out the tutorial given on this Board. Done with strip piecing and NO templates. Am doing one using her method right now. Very easy. I think the lady was from Russia. Here's the link. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-50608-1.htm

    Burgoyne's surrounded. It looks hard but it is not that bad and the results are spectacular.

    I am working on a drunkard path, but arranging the block in a different way. It is like the log cabin, there seems to be no end to the ways it can be arranged.

Any help Please???
    My favorite 2 color blocks are "Robbing Peter to pay Paul" and "Drunkard's Path". I just now realized that they are similar in some respects.

    Patricia Pepe's 'Knight Time' quilt could adapt to this kind of colour scheme. You could see it at www.quiltqueendesigns.com or log on to www.quilterstv.com where she demonstrates her blocks and tools and you can get a lot of other great demonstrations as well.

    Drunkard's path is a two color quilt. Of course, the curve is more difficult.

    I have made this pattern also and I love it. It is not sewn on-point, it's one of those you sew in rows, then cut diagonally, reposition, resew, cut diagonally again, reposition, then resew and VOILA you have an on-point quilt. Can be done in a day, two at the most.

    How about using Eleanor Burns' Day & Night Quilt in a Day Technique?

    In one of my quilting books, I recently saw a pattern I wanted to make, with just 2 fabric. Basically you have a solid color square that you set on an angle and a 9 patch with the 2 colors. when you alternate these blocks, it creates a path like pattern. Looks very traditional and gorgeous.
