    Yellow & gray fabric?

    Recently I've several quilts made with collection of yellow & gray fabrics. But I have no idea what the names of these collections are. Do any of y'all know of any yellow & gray fabric collections? And if so, would you be ever-so-kind as to tell me what they are? THANK YOU!

    Sorry, don't know any collections.
    I've used them together in quilts - they're lovely together

    I'm using this yellow/gray fabric from Martha Negley called Oak Leaves in my new quilt that I'm working on.

    I like gray (grey) (potato - potatoe) and yellow together. I think it gives off a vintage vibe.

    Our Wal Mart had the yellow and gray collection. Might want to check there.

    I'd call it a variation of MONOCHROMATIC: Yellow which has been darkened or shaded by black; AND Yellow which has been lightened or tinted by white. White plus black makes gray and the degrees of value in between. Voila - yellow and gray color scheme. Looks great! but I'd definitely add a few small punches of pure black or pure yellow to add interest.

    Reflections from Red Rooster has beautiful gray and yellow with other colors. I just bought some myself.

    I have made a baby quilt out of gray and yellow and made some burlap bags for a wedding using those colors. Love it!..

    Have you posted pictures? I have a scenic print with a house and trees that is yellow and grey, and I have collected yellow and grey fabrics to use with it, just need to choose a pattern. I would love to see what you have done.

    I'm currently working on a gray and yellow quilt for my grandson's wedding gift. He and his fiance picked out the fabric and the pattern (Kansas Troubles). I would have never thought of using gray and yellow but they picked those colors and it is beautiful. Will post a picture when I finish it if I can remember how.

    "Echo" and "Bella" by Lotta Jansdotter are beautiful. Hawthorne Threads for instance carries these and many other shops, check Etsy
