    I have to make a quilt with two colors red and white. Does anyone have any suggestions for a quilt pattern. The quilt needs to be a queen size. Thanks in advance for your help.

    A Hunters Star was the first thing that came to my mind - it'd be striking in red and white.

    Do try a Disappearing 9 patch. So many ways to arrange the pieces after you slash...makes several very interesting blocks. Google DNP and get the free pattern. Show us pics.

    Do a QAYG Rail Fence! That would be really pretty. My sister is going to do one for her son in reds and blues!

    Hunter's Star was my first choice but it depends on your comfort Zone. A Double or Triple Irish Chain is not too difficult. Good Luck and keep us posted.
