    I promised my grandson I would make him a quilt with matcing pillow shams,( full size) .
    My problelm is that he only wants me to use two colors-Neon green and solid black. I have no idea as to what pattern to use. My grandson is 12 y.o.a. Any ideas ?

    How about a zigzag quilt? It's basically all HST, fast and easy.

    If you are confident of your skills, try the Eleanor Burns, Quilt in a Day pattern called Day and Night. The book is about 20.00 and it comes WITH the special acrilic ruler that is used to cut the blocks. It looks hard when you first open the book and scan through it but if you go slow and read ( and re-read ) each step, you can do it. Plus, if you need help, there are a TON of people on this forum that should be able to help you.

    There was a quilt on earlier that only used two fabrics and each block was reversed. They called it the potato chip pattern or rainy day block. Take an 8" block and put 2" borders around it. Just alternate the colors. Pretty cool looking.

    You can use more than two fabrics, just not more than two colors. I have neon green dots on black, there are n green blenders, there are black on black prints in addition to the solids.

    Check out this pattern link, it's very easy and quick to make.
    If you switch centers on each block using your two suggested colors, I think it'll look great.

    Here's the link:

    Even if he only wants two colors, you might be able to sneak in more than two fabrics by using various prints with neon green and black. If you're really limited to only two fabrics, Nicole C Chambers has a quilt pattern called Butterscotch Sundae that I love. It's in the book More Simple Quilts with Splash, Dash & Panache - http://www.amazon.com/More-Simple-Qu.../dp/097083750X - it's the quilt on the cover.

    Thanks, pinwheels is what I am making for his two sisters.
    Maybe I can reverse the colors on the blocks but that is a good idea. Thanks

    I like the Day and Night idea. It is a great looking quilt and would be good in those 2 colors.

    I love the pattern but don't know if I can make it, maybe if I had a closer look at the pattern, I might be able to manage it.

    It's really a very easy pattern. I don't think it would be too hard for you. I'll look to find it in case you decide you want it. I believe I got it from a quilting magazine.
