sunshine yellow

Yellow is the color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge. Yellow is my favorite color, but, it doesn't look as lovely in my patterns as some of the other colors. hmmmm

country roads

tiny houses

I've been working to finish a couple of ufos. I finished Aunt Mary's double irish chain yesterday.

I ran into a snafu with the patriotic ufo. I discovered that I had 3 sashing strips for the inner border attached, but, not the fourth. It was nowhere to be found. I made the decision to unattach one of the borders, and make 2 new ones for the top and bottom. I think it looks ok. I would have preferred they all match. So, all borders are on the top, and, it is on the longarm frame ready for quilting. I hope I get to that today.

  1. You'll find the 4th border as soon as you finish the quilting. Happy stitching!

  2. Yellow can be a bit much all alone, but as part of a collection it is such a great addition. Your yellow blocks look great!

  3. I love your blocks in yellow! The houses are so cute - especially the one that says, "Sew!"

  4. Bits of yellow sure do add a sparkle to a quilt. Good luck with the quilting on the pretty patriotic quilt today.

  5. I find that sometimes my yellows don’t have enough contrast when used with neutrals. I think your blocks look great! They will all add just the right amount of sparkle to each quilt!

  6. Your yellow blocks are all lovely. I’m totally smitten with your little houses. Between you and Cathy at Sane and Crazy, I think I’ve been pushed over the edge - gotta make some!!!!

  7. Oh, that sweet little SEW house!!! LOVE!!!

  8. Yellow will provide a nice sunny spark for your quilt.

  9. Hi,

  10. I think your yellow blocks all look great. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  11. I like your yellow blocks especially the "sew" house!
