    Question What is your fav two color quilt pattern?

    DS has requested a quilt w/red and tan...just a tad scrappy. What is your fav pattern? This w/b queen size and really want a realtive easy pattern. Life always too stressful to worry about a quilt project!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I have to say it would be black with a bright batik or ivory with a deep blue but not navy blue. I know a little weird...lol

    I googled red and tan quilt patterns and I thought this one was really nice, and it is just a string quilt done with the 2 colours

    Bother, that link doesn't take you directly to the picture, you will need to scroll down to almost the bottom of the page and the quilt I am taking about is call red, black and tan

    I just googled two colored quilts: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...mg.XqcIqD-loc4

    I will tell you right now that Delectable Mountains is a very easy pattern. You take a half square triangle and slice it up and sew it back together. Easy Peasy.

    Bonnie calls it scrappy mountain majesties.

    Here's a pretty one:

    What about a double Irish Chain, I have a book with 2 color quilts in it, it looks fairly simple.

    I haven't made it yet, but I really like the quilt on the cover of this book by Nicole Chambers. I've seen it made up in black and white prints - gorgeous!

    I have one that alternates between rail fence blocks and 9 patch, all set on point. You wouldn't need a pattern at all. Let me see if I can find a picture of it.

    Try the Ocean Waves block. It is perfect for two color quilts. In each block, use one red and one tan fabric. As you continue with the blocks, put a different shade of tan and/or red in each.

    I'm trying to post a picture of one I "saved for future". I don't remember where I found it, and it may even have come from this board. I love the quilt and am saving fabrics for it right now! Thanks to whoever posted this picture!Name:  Red Rover picture.jpg

    How about a log cabin? could be scrappy red on one side and one fabric tan on the other, or even scrappy tan.

    I think Bonnie Hunter's quilit just may win. Not sure tho...have to finish this scrappy quilt first and then start his. Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I really appreciate it.
