Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Buzzzzzz

Yellow fabric came in yesterday and I just couldn't resist getting this one  done and onto the" to be quilted" pile. 
 
 
This was the second B/W quilt top that got made as the result of my wanting to use up all the blacks and whites in my stash.  But after making the b/w and red queen sized quilt, I was getting  pretty tired of working with these strips. 
 
Here's a close up of the corner.
 
 
Just as a reminder, here is the one with red.
 
 
I have enough of these strip to make another one, but I think I am just going to put them away for the time being or it might be a donation to the guild.  We will see. 
 
I am thinking the yellow one may be a charity quilt, too. 
 
As for the Buzzzz title.....I am thinking this one reminds me  of a bumble bee.
 
Ok...so it's a stretch.

  6. I love them both and you've reminded me of my black and white stash, I used to use them quite a bit but not so much anymore.

  7. I really love what you came up with just using the leftovers. The double yellow border is great!

  9. That is one combination of colors I don't have much of at all. Our latest guild friendship block is blacks and whites and its a task to work with them but a good way to learn.
    I like the spark of yellow you used - good for you to use up some of your stash and create such dramatic quilts!

  10. Love your B&Ws! If you decide to do one last one, might I suggest turquoise as your other color. I love that combination!
