Ok I posted earlier about any suggestions for a pattern that includes only three colors. Also it will be my third quilt so anything a little easier. I took some pictures of the fabric to aid people on suggestions Smiley thanks!

this one is a close up of the pattern

I'd probably do a real simple rail fence.

IMO, I would pick something with a larger block to show off the design of your fabric. Did you want to put all three colours in the same quilt? If yes, I would buy three solids matching the colours of the swirl fabrics and go from there.  One site I absolutely love specially back when I was starting out quilting is www.quilterscache.com  , once you get to the site, go to the drop down arrow and go to free patterns.  From there, go to the alphabetical list, this will show the names of the blocks and there are pins beside to show the level of difficulty. One pin being easy, ...3 or 4 being difficult.

Once you click on the name it has the picture and full instructions.
Or you can go by the pictures in the main pattern window.  Look for something that has two colours to make a block but once put together you could put blocks made from all three colours together.  What I like about these patterns are at the end of the pattern they show a finished quilt top so you can see one completed.

I hope this helps, it may be too much info but Im trying...

I would do the basket weave, that is unless you are good at triangles. Not that it is hard, most likely they use squares that you sew across and trim off the back half. I would suggest you use different fabric and practice to see what one you find easier or most satisfying.

Good luck!

this is the pattern I chose. Its called turning twenty. I think it will look good once I rotate the colors through the patterns and you dont waste any fabric. I've already started cutting tonight Smiley

Ha -- I was reading through the thread and was going to suggest Turning Twenty ... until I saw your last post.  I'm a beginner and have made two of these ... one of them with only 3 fabrics.  How is yours going?
