So I figured why not? Why not let yellow and ____ be my inspiration this week? I love the mix of yellow and gray in some blocks, the yellow and red/blue mix in others, and my favorite, the yellow and black.  

Let's begin with yellow.

Honey use and production has a long and varied history. In many cultures, honey has associations that go beyond its use as a food. Honey is frequently used as a talisman and symbol of sweetness.:

I have been thinking about a yellow quilt for ages, though I've done nothing about it yet. These are so cheerful and just right for this time of year.
