    I am looking for pattern ideas for a 2 color...ice white and deep purple...quilt that will really show off the colors. Something much more advanced than a simple checkerboard but nothing with applicque in it.

    I've done the Eleanor Burns Day and Night quilts from Quilt in a Day and really like the ''look'' but am open to try something different!!

    Thanks for your ideas

    When I saw your top title I was going to recommended the Day/Night one - but another good choice is Irish Chain!

    I really like the look of the Hunters Star pattern, or for a challenge, what about Winding Ways.

    How about Drundards Path, I have those templates and it works great for two colors. So many different lay-outs of design

    Here's one of mine. This pattern might look nice if one of your fabrics is a print.

    Sorry, will try again. :oops:

    You could always do a snails trail.

    Most blocks can be made into just 2 colors. I like Drunkard's Path (its one of my favorites) like others said. Lots you can do with this block. I just purchased a pattern from Eleanor Burns - Lattice Work. The main part of the quilt is 2 colors and then the border is a darker variation for distinction. Really a pretty pattern.

    I made Jacobs Ladder using only 2 fabrics. Medium to darker blue for the ladder and lighter blue for the back ground> Really made the ladder stand out.

    thanks for all the ideas!!! we have w-a-a-y too much talent on this board.....and the nice part is, everyone likes to share their ideas!!

    This quilt will be for my Vet for Christmas. I've already done a purple/white Jacobs Ladder, Monkey Wrench, Irish Chain but will give the Hunters Star another ''look see''. I am leaning towards the Night and Day tho....it was a great pattern and a great look too!!

    I googled two color quilts and found this pic of a Hunter's Star quilt in two colors. Winding Ways would be pretty too.

    Hunter's Star is a pretty 2 color quilt. Drunkard's Path also works up well using just 2 colors. I'm sure there are a bunch of others but these come to my mind first.
    God Bless,
    Rachel
