Your Favorite Two-Color Combo Will be Just as Stunning!
Two-color quilts are hugely popular, especially red and white ones. This version uses large blocks so it will stitch together more quickly than many while producing the highly-sought-after traditional look.
Dig into your scraps and pull out the reds. Or, coordinate a selection of fat quarters. Replicate the look shown here by choosing subtle prints without much contrast. Or, imagine red and white prints. The look may not be quite as traditional but it will be stunning!
Of course, if red isn’t your thing, this quilt will be striking in your favorite two-color combo. Navy and white comes to mind, as does bold aqua and soft yellow or peach instead of white.
The finished quilt, by designer Nancy Mahoney, is 77″ x 77″. Four blocks would make a lovely table topper, while 9 would create a crib quilt.
