    This is the second black and yellow quilt I have made to take to the high school football games. The 1st one I made didn't make it back home with me so we will see if this does.
    This is the fabric I had to dye because I couldn't find any yellow and black print on the same fabric.
    The colors are not showing true, it shows them in a grey but it is very bright black and yellow. Camera not cooperating today.
    Thank you for looking!

    BTW they are the Murray Tigers.

    Glad to hear it didn't walk away on its own. And what a great way to make a new friend! :thumbup:

    If that's the black, yellow, white with a splash of gray fabric then your camera is not doing justice to your quilt. I can just imagine how it looks in true color - beautiful.
    Sometimes my camera acts up and the colors are not right. I hold my finger over the flash and get a better picture.
    I love your quilt.

    What's funny is there is no white or grey in it at all. The black has sm. yellow polka dots and the colors are nice and bright. I tried to retake pictures won't it didn't look any better. I don't get why my camera doesn't like these colors.

    I went to the game and brought my quilt home. Ofcourse it wasn't cold so ppl weren't looking for anything to cover up with. LOL. On a really good note our football team won, they are now 12-0. They are going to state on the 3rd of December. WooHoo!!

    I love your quilt! What a cool idea of dying the fabric to meet your needs. Love that too. I am happy that you have gotten to keep this quilt. It is very nice & you did a great job.
