Round Robin #2: Two Colors

Welcome back to the Stay At Home Round Robin!  This week it's Anja's turn to pick, and she chose Two Colors.  For something different, the block itself is completely up to you; instead you are incorporating two colors.  As a reminder, this is what I had after my signature blocks from the last round:

I left the corners open for this week's round.  I decided on a classic two-colored block, the four patch.  I know it looks black in the photo, but it's a really dark purple blender.  The background fabric is Almond, an Island Batik Foundation fabric.

I made four so I could add them to those empty corners.

I wanted a little more space around the signature block border, so I added an additional border made of the background fabric, with cornerstones so that even my border had the requisite Two Colors.  

After the center plus the first two rounds, my quilt measures 36" square.  

Now it's your turn!  Decide what you want to add to your quilt that contains two colors.  Link up with Anja at Anja Quilts for a chance to win one of the prizes from our fabulous sponsors.  Check out my intro post for all the details on the prizes.  And don't forget to visit all the hosts to see what they did with two colors.


  1. Love your second round and the continuation of the cornerstones. I am tired of grey days taking pictures and distorting the color!

  2. Love how the 4 patch continues the pattern from the centre!

  3. The four patch works so well, as does the extra border. It's been fun to see what everyone is doing with this prompt.

  4. I like how those squares are reaching out diagonally from the center.

  5. So cool; it's like rays of the centre star!

  6. Lovely how you continued the pattern!
