We study regularity for solutions of quasilinear elliptic equations of the form $\div \A(x,u,\nabla u) = \div \F $ in bounded domains in $\R^n$. The vector field $\A$ is assumed to be continuous in $u$, and its growth in $\nabla u$ is like that of the $p$-Laplace operator. We establish interior gradient estimates in weighted Morrey spaces for weak solutions $u$ to the equation under a small BMO condition in $x$ for $\A$. As a consequence, we obtain that $\nabla u$ is in the classical Morrey space $\calM^{q,\lambda}$ or weighted space $L^q_w$ whenever $
^{\frac{1}{p-1}}$ is respectively in $\calM^{q,\lambda}$ or $L^q_w$, where $q$ is any number greater than $p$ and $w$ is any weight in the Muckenhoupt class $A_{\frac{q}{p}}$. In addition, our two-weight estimate allows the possibility to acquire the regularity for $\nabla u$ in a weighted Morrey space that is different from the functional space that the data $
^{\frac{1}{p-1}}$ belongs to.
