Told my daughter-in-law I'd make her a quilt. She requested yellow, red, and brown . I'm stumped about what pattern to use with those colors. Any suggestions? (Nothing like Mariners's Compass please.)
Thank you.

You could do yellow and red pinwheels with brown sashings.

Go to Quilters Cache and scroll through block patterns. I'm sure you will find an idea.

Actually, I suggest you go to a LQS and find some fabrics that would "go together"....and let that help you decide a pattern.

I think honeybee blocks would look good in those colors.

Jacob's Ladder (I made one out of those same colors.)

I also think a Log Cabin would be really cute with those colors!
