    Honestly my favorite 2 color pattern is a basic 9 patch or 4 patch.

    Like others have said before me, Hunters star, Lemoyne star. and single Irish chain is always nice in two colors. Feathered star would be beautiful also.

    Single Irish Chain can be chain pieced and is put together quickly

    I agree with Hunter's Star. Very classy.

    Do you mean 2 fabric, or 2 color? You can make a lot of quilts with just 2 colors, in various shades, but fewer with just 2 fabrics.
