    OMG the first thing is how much time do you have to make them? You could make a string quilt, a bargello, a disappearing 9 patch would probably be the easiest to do. Wish you luck with whatever you choose to make.

    I did Jacob's Ladder in these colors. It was very. Nice.

    Disappearing 9 Patch is easy. I made another of these and used lime green instead.

    I love the D9P in the above picture of red/white/black. The one feature I have never been able to figure out is how do you layout the squares so that you always get the small 2 red squares in the center, and opposite corners? My D9P always ends up helter-skelter. Thanks for any help.

    I took this at a show some years ago back home. I do not know the pattern name. (sorry) But, it does look pretty easy.

    Put the red in the center of the 9 patch.

    I did a Turning 20 for my friend, in mostly reds, whites and backs, with a little grey thrown in. She had collected fat quarters and didn't know what to do with them. I put a border of black with red leaves (a batic I think) and bound in black. The quilt was for a day bed and we made pillow shams from the feature fabric with the same border, and a bed skirt from that fabric as well. ]It was stunning! [ATTACH=CONFIG]573603[/ATTACH

    Using Yahoo I searched for Red Black White quilt images. I know you can find something here.

    A few years ago I made a sampler quilt using reds, whites and blacks. It was lots of fun to try new blocks and different techniques. Mine has 56 unique blocks but it is an oversized king.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    This one is easy. It is called 'Split Steps Quilt Block'.
    Good luck.

    I JUST DID A BABY QUILT THAT WAY. I DID A 4 PATCH. THE BIGGER BLOCK WAS A RED WITH little spots. the two smaller smaller squares in the 4 patch were black with white spot and white with black spots. came out very pretty and basic for a baby.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    do they need to be exactly the same? there was an issue of either McCall's or American Patchwork (ok--it might have been Quiltaker) within this past year that showed how to cut two twin quilts at the same time and you ended up with 2 similar but very different quilts. Think there were two sets shown. Let me do some magazine digging tomorrow and see if I can find it.
