Default 2 color quilt

Besides Irish Chain, do you have suggestions for blocks/patterns for a 2-color quilt?

I have several yards of 2 specific fabrics, and I would like to make a quilt just from those 2 fabrics (even though my personal taste leans toward Bonnie Hunter scrap-ish types of quilts).

Any suggestions?

The Hunter's Star pattern looks good in two colours!

If the 2 fabrics have good contrast, then Disappearing Hourglass would be my choice. There are some great examples on QB of different arrangements of the blocks.

D9P is an easy pattern with just two colors used.

If you have good contrast Rolling Waves would be a good pattern. Similar to an Irish Chain but looks really cool and modern.

Flying geese are dramatic in just 2 fabrics.

Orange peel can look really cool.

Really, depends on your 2 fabrics, but most of the classic quilt blocks take on a dramatic and graphic feel when done in just 2 fabrics.

If you like scrappy quilts, perhaps you could make a sampler quilt using a variety of blocks.

If your fabrics are high contrast you could make two versions of each block, reversing the colors, or make half and half blocks where the colors are reversed on half the block.
