    Can I do ?

    Hi Everyone. I have a question. Can a Lovers Knot Quilt Pattern from Eleanor Burns be done with only three colors. I'm doing a quilt for my daughters best friends wedding and have 3 colors only. Can't find anything to go with them..

    I think it could be. The darkest 2 prints in the example read as the same color to me, one is just a larger print.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

      Karen, do you mean the lightest two prints?

      I think it would look pretty with 3 colors but those two light ones, in my opinion, do not have enough contrast between them.
      Think Dark, Medium and Light for 3 colors.

        No, I mean the two that look black, or really dark purple. One has tiny flowers on it and the other had larger flowers.

              It looks great to me! Go for it.

              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                  I thought it would work too and your sample proves it. Looks lovely.

                          That looks great Jackie! Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

                          Sorry Karen - I was looking at the fabric samples and I guess you were looking at the finished quilt sample. Or if we were both looking at the fabric samples my monitor must not be showing colors correctly. LOL - it would not be the first time!
