Two Color Quilt

My local quilt shop had a two-color quilt challenge and I decided to enter.  My first stop was Pinterest and I started pinning ideas on my board, appropriately named Two Color Quilts.



I knew this quilt was going to be used on my bed and I wanted to introduce yellow into my room.  Yellow and Snow (Kona's name for a creamy white) are my colors of choice.  Next up to decide on a pattern from my Pinterest board, I went with this simple pattern

My quilt was completed at the end of April, but I didn't want to show my quilt on the blog .  All the quilts were suppose to be secret and the customers of the quilt shop voted on their top three favorites.  No I did not win, there were 18 incredible quilts from a group of  amazingly talented quilters.



I am just so happy to have this beauty on my bed, it sure does brighten my room.

The quilt is queen size and very hard for my girls to hold this up. I think they had very tired arms after all these pictures were taken.


The quilts hung in the quilt shop from June 1st to July 1st, making a very pretty display at the store.  Now I am so happy to have it on my bed.

  4. It's so pretty. I would never thought a yellow and cream only colored quilt would be so beautiful. Sometimes you just have to see something. Love it.

  6. I know it's seriously uncool to covet something, but that's how I feel about this quilt. I love yellow, and this design is so joyful. I've made two baby quilts (25 years ago), but when I see something this lovely...

  13. I really love two colored quilts. I guess I am a bit of a plain-Jane, but you can add other accents more easily when the quilt is beautiful but not demanding all of the attention. Your choice of color and pattern is really pretty!
