Default She wants zebra print and teal....

My daughter has asked for her quilt to be zebra and teal - and maybe some fuscia. What kind of pattern (for a beginner) would you think of for that combination?

That will be gorgeous!The Disappearing Nine Patch comes to mind with the large block zebra, the corners teal and the small center fuchsia.

I think it would be kind of cool to create an irish chain with those three colors. I just started an irish chain for DD with black, white, and grey. The black is the center of the 9 patch and the grey makes up the chains and the white is also the solid blocks. It looks pretty good. See avatar.

after seeing it posted here, i think the teal border needs to be the same size or larger than the sashing.

I think the pattern looks like an attic window and I love how it looks like you are peeking at the black and white. No additional border needed. IMHO. love it!

A square in a square would be easy and look good in those colors.

Oh Nan, wish I could do EQ like you can! That said I love that combo together. This is a striking easy quilt.
