Ashlee's Yellow and Grey

Ashlee's quilt is done!
And it didn't even take me another 9 months to complete.  Thank goodness!

Up Close
 Isn't it pretty?  Ashlee and I make a good team.


 The fabrics are a hodge podge of yellow and grey's she and I found at my LQS.  The main ones are from Joel Dewberry's Aviary line (...I think!)  

The yellow/grey color combo is super popular right now, as you might have noticed!
I have started collecting my own yellows and greys for myself a little quilt. :)

 

The backing is also by Joel Dewberry (Medallion maybe??), with a yellow gingham I can't remember, and a grey print from Aneela Hoey. How's that for sort of helpful?! :)


On a side rant note:  See how the medallion print design is not straight on the top and bottom edge?  What's up with that??  Seems it was not printed straight on the fabric. I have no idea if that was a mistake on the bolt I got or on all of them, but I was super annoyed and frustrated.  I tried to make it less noticeable and still keep it straight.  This was the best I could do.  So, fabric makers, just a note:  If you are printing such a huge design on fabric please make sure it is straight!  I can understand if a "cheap" print is off a bit, but this one should not have been.  Just saying...

  1. Sooooo agreed on the straight printing. It's just annoying when you've paid a premium for designer fabric.
