A Yellow and Blue Quilt




These are larger pictures of the yellow and blue quilt that has been on my side bar for a couple of weeks. I made this quilt 3 or 4 years ago. I need to do a better job of documenting my quilts. I started a little photo album with some of them in it, but need to do a record with the date and pattern, etc.

When I was looking for a pattern for this quilt, I wanted to do a yellow and blue quilt. I found this pattern on line: http://mccallsquilting.com/golden/mg13_pattern/




It seemed to be exactly what I had in mind and is one of my favorite quilts. Even though it looks like a summer or spring quilt, we use it in the winter because it is heavier than some of the quilts I have made.

I also made matching pillow cases from the left over fabric that you can see in the picture of the bed. I still have a good amount of leftover scraps from this quilt. These scraps have shown up in some baby quilts that I have made since then. One of them was the "String X Baby Quilt that I have posted about earlier here: http://homemakingdreams.blogspot.com/2007/08/string-x-baby-quilt.html

That is just stunning. I think yellow and blue has to be one of the most beautiful color combinations ever...a little restful, and a little cheerful at the same time!
Thanks for your good wishes over at my blog. I feel much better today! My daughter bought me ice cream last night for my throat. Wasn't that sweet? I told her she was my favorite daughter. She didn't buy it...since she's my only daughter!
That must have been hard to have that tube down your throat for so long. I hope that never happens to you again!

I love that combination and the pattern. I wanted to do a yellow and blue quilt for ages - it is just so cheerful. I finally started one about a month ago.... who knows when I will finish! When I do, I'll post a photo :)

Love,

Joy

Hi, Debbie -- your quilt is beautiful and is very similar to one I have. (I wish I could say I made mine, but I didn't.) Great job! -- Ruth

PS: I just realized today that your blog now allows "anonymous" comments. :)
