Today my DH and I spent the 'perfect' afternoon together at our quilt shop - we are not open on Sundays and you'd think our One Day Off would be spent away from the shop...but it was so "piece-full" - just the two of us. He worked on a quilt for my Mom...and I worked on *Yellow*. I wondered how BRIGHT yellow would work with all we've done so far - but after a couple days of looking at fabrics...here's what I chose.
I brought back my favorite green/wh polka dottie and a little avocado & ochre. I'm trying to use a different b/w for every block - with the top yellow fab, I couldn't resist repeating the 'flowers'
My "made fabric"
The sewing went well, even tho I did have to invite Mr Hammer back for a quick visit
But I was gentle....
And now....say Hello to Yellow!
I thought this yellow guy would be the 'odd fellow' out - but really plays well with others. I'm really quite pleased.
I had a little extra time while Bob was quilting - so I caught up on my "wonky stars" - I'm doing at least ONE with each of the colors - they are not 'in place' - so many more will join in before the final placement is chosen, but wanted to give you a sneakie peekie - found a fun lay-out in my travels online (sometimes insomnia has it's perks).
