    Block or pattern idea for a 2 colord quilt ?

    Hi

    I am looking for a pattern or a block that will do this red fabric justice.

    I am thinking 2 fabrics , the red and a white or a cream.
    But I have no ideea of what pattern or what block to make.

    All I know is that it has to showcase the red fabric as the star of the quilt.

    Any suggestions ? Can you help me with ideeas or links to pursuie ?

    Thanks in advance

    Annika

    It is a beautiful fabric! I think you need to look for something that has a larger block of the fabric to showcase the pattern. You might consider a touch of black with the cream. Red and black are beautiful together. Let me check to see if I can find a pattern that might be good for it.

        It is hard to find a pattern that doesn't cut your fabric into little pieces. I don't know if you know how to paper piece, but I like this pattern. I'd use the red where it is blue, plus in the corners. I'd use black where it has the medium value, and cream where it shows white. Good luck in your hunt for a pattern. That is the fun of it - planning.

          Also, consider the Jenny's Big Star. You could use red and black for each star, and cream for the background. That would really show off your fabric.

            If you like modern this one is fun. With the red as the background the lines look like reeds in the wind. Like music

                Carpenter's star is beautiful, large blocks that would show off that fabric. You could add a little black to the border and it would be stunning.

                  Thank you so much for your input!!

                  Right know it stands between a big Carpenters star or Jennys Big star.

                  Hm.. adding a touch of black might be a great ideea.

                  I will let you know what I decided.

                  Thank you again for such great ideeas.

                  Have a great day/Evening

                  Hugs Annika

                      What about an Irish Chain quilt like this My New Craftsy Class! (scroll down a little bit, I mean the white one, with the grey chains and the scrappy Blocks on point)
                      There you can fuzzycut and really show the nice fabric.
                      Maybe you could do the chain with the red fabric too...
                      I think that could look quite nice.
                      Best wishes and Greetings

                        Annika have you checked out Quilt Blocks Galore! for blocks they come in various sizes and are quite a few 2 color blocks. My quilting ladies and I did our last years quilt with all 2 color blocks of different styles. It was fun. Here is a picture of mine.more quilts 001.jpg

                          How about the 2 color Drunkards Path that Jenny did in her tutorial in aqua and white... just was watching it last night.. and think it might be nice for this.. you might want to try to work the musical bars in a pleasing and uniform direction....

                            I am going to need to make that Carpenter's Star! It is gorgeous. If you make it, you will need to use black in the star, too, so that it looks three dimensional.
