21 Two Color Quilts: Free Quilt Patterns, Quilt Block Patterns, and More!

By: Jen Oskin, Editor, FaveQuilts.com

Two Tone Star Block Quilting can be an expensive and time-consuming hobby. When patterns calls for several different colors of fabric, the cost can really add up.  It's not necessary to include every color under the rainbow to make a pretty quilt. Two color quilt patterns are wonderfully minimalistic because they either only use two colors of fabric, or fabrics with similar hues. We think you’ll love this collection of 21 Two Color Quilts: Free Quilts, Quilt Block Patterns, and More!

It’s a mistake to think that two color quilts can only be made in one style. Whether you love to make log cabin quilts or you enjoy paper piecing patterns, two color quilt patterns are awesome because you can still use your favorite quilting techniques. Two color quilts also make great scrapbusting projects. From quilted napkins to lap throws to bed quilts, there are a plethora of quilt projects that you can make from just two colors.

Two color quilts also can be much easier on the eyes. When quilts have two many different colors, your eyes don’t know where to look. Two color patterns can help you appreciate the great beauty in simplicity. With these quilt ideas, everyone can focus their attention on the striking patterns that you created rather than being overwhelmed by a chaotic kaleidoscope of colors.
