Yellow & Black

It seems a long time coming, but I've finally brought the yellow and black quilt top to a completed state. 

I began with 12" blocks I'd made some years ago. I surrounded them with 8" blocks from the Parts Dept. that fit the color scheme.

Then I set out to make additional blocks to bring the top up to a more useful size. You can read about that in this post. Once I had enough blocks to go the distance it was holiday season. Too many distractions to get much done then! I finally had the time and energy to audition block placements to create border sections the other day. Taa daa!

Those 10" blocks bring the top up to finish at about 60" square. The next step will be to create a back. 😊


  1. Congrats for getting this far -- it really is stunning to look at on the screen. Quiltdivajulie

  2. Sue, you are so incredibly creative! I love your "Parts Dept"! I may have to adopt that term 😅
