    Two fabric quilts

    I'm looking for quilt patters that use just two fabrics. Any suggestions?

    I did a "Hole in the Barn Door" with Red and Gold once. Looks pretty good. I think "Boxed Squares" would lend itself well to 2 colors as well.

    pinwheels and stars look great in two colors.

    Here is a Google images search to get the ideas flowing.

    My favorite is always the round one called Vortex, but I need about 25 more years experience before I try it!

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to attempt a disappearing 4 patch with a twist. Not sure how well that will go, since you need a steady hand to cut it apart and mine are anything but...........

    Dear Jane and Sentimental Stitches did "Just Takes Two". It was a BOM offered not long ago. The blocks were all in the public domain, but they'd resized them a little. But, all the blocks were made with just two colors - in the BOM it was red and white. The blocks are for sale, but you could look at all the completed blocks to get ideas.

    I made two, name Illusions. I posted pics of the #15 and #16 around the end of 2012. Very easy.

    I have a lovely two fabric pattern that I found on a free online site. It is at home of course and I am at the office. It was designed as a mystery quilt and is in four steps. I put it together in one day. It is sitting on my UFO pile waiting for quilting. I will find the pattern and post the link to it tomorrow and also PM the link to you. Not difficult and fun.

    It depends on the look you are going for. A simple Irish Chain is always beautiful. The a nine patch with a snowball has become my personal favorite. Easy to do and looks great!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.

    I love "Drunkards Path," and have always wanted to do it in red and white.
