    I like monochromatic combos like maroon/pink, navy/lt. blue, black/gray, etc. Unfortunately they are still on my bucket list. Other things come up and push them to the back burner.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I've done several snail trail quilts in two colors (sorry, no pics). One was my DD's school color--purple. I used lights, mediums and darks. It is interesting how in some squares the medium is dark and in others, it is light. The other quilt was for my then-boyfriend (now DH) and done in blues. I paper-pieced each block and used a 6" block.

    Bother, that link doesn't take you directly to the picture, you will need to scroll down to almost the bottom of the page and the quilt I am taking about is call red, black and tan
    There are a lot of great looking quilts on that site. I really like the red and white heart quilt.

    I have probably made 8 or ten Winner's circles with just two colors. Sometimes I have added the third color in border but still made the blocks just two colors. goes fast. Just 20 blocks and than your borders I extended the borders to finish either queen or even king size.

    I have a whole book on two-color quilts. It shows blue and white on the cover, but of course you are not limited to that. I got it years ago; it's a 9x12 paperback. It's Quick Method Classic Blue Quilts by Leisure Arts Inc., date 1997.

    I just love Ohio Star. It looks great in any two colors. I used scrappy red and plain white muslin. Would look great in red and tan also.

    A Kaleidoscope looks good in two colors. Wish I could put my picture here (dial up). But, I asked for quilting help under "kaleidoscope Stuck". I am *almost* thru hand binding it, and will post a final picture then. I was pleasantly surprised at how much it was liked. I had felt like it was 'blah'. Thanks again for that, ladies!! =))

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    9 patch (D9P) and drunkards path immediately come to mind. Snowball, maple leaf, storm at sea.

    Around the world could be done in different shades of 2 colors, or a bargello. Lots of blocks on quilters cache are shown in 2 colors incl. bear paw.

    There's Bonnie Hunter's boxy stars.

    I would ask more closely what he wants. When my son asked for a black and white quilt. he really meant B&W with touches of red. These are 2 versions of a simple ALMOST 2 color pattern I made for someone else. It is really easy, being made with one partial seam.

    Dina--I saved a picture of your quilt when you first posted it because I loved it so much and hoped to make it one day! It's a wonderful example of a two color quilt that is anything but plain.

    English Wedding Ring looks nice in two colors. Especially set on point.

    Here is one I did for my granddaughter. It's called Broken Dishes from a Fons and Porter Magazine and is just HSTs! There are 4 HSTs in each block, so if you look at the lower left corner you can see how the block is constructed. Very quick and easy!

    I love your quilt -- it inspires me to try one like it.

    It's not scappy, but Hunter's Star makes up beautifullly in two colors.
