One man's trash...


This year my guild, the Cobblestone Quilt Guild ran a mystery quilt in the newsletter. My buddy Karen was making the blocks but decided that she hated most of the yellow/orange blocks. I told her I would adopt those poor unloved blocks because I loved the colors. (I'm of the mind that you can't have too many bright colors!) Here are the blocks I got from her.




After playing with the blocks for a while I finally decided on a way to set them while adding some additional blues and greens. This isn't done yet. I was working on this at TTT (trailer trash Tuesday) at Karen's and we all decided that it would be fun to add something else. I don't have a photo of what I've done yet, but will post one soon.

I think I'm going to name this "Trash or Treasure?" Karen still thinks it's too bright, but I don't.







Karen ended up making 2 tops out of the mystery quilt blocks instead of one row quilt. I like what she did, and am glad she included at least SOME yellow/orange!

Since I've had a preview of the additions to Corky's Trash to Treasure quilt I'm just going to be quiet. I love yellow but I'm of a mind that just a little bit of the bright yellow goes a LONG way! We are having a good time with all of it and I'm glad my rejects found a home.

Corky, I love all three quilts! But that first one is my favorite and it is not too bright! It's just dang cheerful!!!

All beautiful. You've done a great job with the orange one. Just that little bit of blue and green makes it work.
