Hope springs...

... eternal.

Today is 3 months since Rich was killed on his bike. I had meant to make this black and white quilt as a symbol of how I feel, and I just couldn't stay in black and white, in came that sunshine yellow! It needs quilting and so forth, but I liked it so much, I had to share!

The pattern came from Patchwork and Quilting.

It's lots of sewing and slashing, but came together really quickly.

Here it is, the top finished on the floor.

Now I just need to back it and quilt it (probably by hand) and then we'll see where we go. But when I went to get more yellow, I accidentally bought 2 more fat quarter packs....

Oops..... :=)


  1. I think that splash of yellow is just great.

  2. The yellow is a good addition to your black and white quilt. It does seem like a ray of hope. You do have a lot to work through.
    I had made a quilt top for my mother with family photos on it. She loved it. At the time, she asked me to wait on the quilting as she wanted to take it with her on a trip to show family. Her health took a turn for the worse when she got back home and I did not get it quilted before she passed away. I could not work on it for five years. Just too sad. I finally hand quilted it.
