Color Challenge #5: Bright YELLOW

Practically NEON hurt your eyes yellow from the 80's...

By the way, I should put a disclaimer on these weekly challenges, that I don necessarily find these colors UGLY!    I'm choosing them by colors that can be difficult to work with, or we have A lot of "Color Baggage" attached to them...It's easy to select those mauve/weird greens and know that many of us have a "UGGG" feeling towards them. So I am clarifying, that these are colors that challenge us... .;-)
So, Singling out colors, BRIGHT YELLOW!This PoP Garden print has quite a electric yellow to it...  I love it...  MORE MORE!
Green was the obvious choice as it was in my print, but found the BLUE and orange to take away a bit of it's electric power.

I can do without the fashions of the 80's though...

Brenda Rocked Bright Yellow on her little Baby quilt using made fabric stars!

Ok, Go for it! Can't wait to see these!

Bright yellow fabric! It's a Colour Challenge, I'm looking forward to it. I've found some bright yellow in the Horribles Box, and I've even got an idea of what to do with it.

Bright but exhilerating! I was feeling like I was being buried in a muted color world so this seems refreshing, like the ocean air and sun after a foggy morning.

Yikes... Am falling behind as I haven't made peach yet. Neon yellow it is... How 80's. Hope you were wearing really big shoulder pads when you wrote this post!

The design of your block (anvil?) is so strong, when you show all the block together I see the design first and color second. Interesting.
Can't wait to try the yellow, I know I have some!

Hooray for bright yellow! Stops traffic. Love this setting choice, too! I think we need at least 16 blocks to play with! Thanks, Victoria.
