Monochromatic Challenge

The yellow quilt top is finished. I had added another border of the check fabric with the plan to use a black binding. I didn't like it. So I took off that last border.

I will use the check border for the binding.
See other yellow projects at Patchwork Times.

Wow! Love the effect the checks have with the yellows. I have seen those checks used in settings I would never thing of putting them, and they look fabulous!

We're both in the same boat. My Top is done too. It would be done if I hadn't loaded another quilt on my table last week that isn't done. I'm so ready to work with Violet!

Love it. Is the black and white a print or pieced? You did a fabulous job.
