Felines, Yellow & X-mas


I know, an odd post title - but it will all make sense in a minute.  I haven't had a Feline Friday  post in a while - they aren't allowed.  BUT occassionally when my back is turned they sneak a nap in.  How funny Moe goes for the black or brown quilts and Bella goes for RED.  And always when you are trying to lay out blocks for assembling tops.  One of the quilts for the Oklahoma teachers - yes, I have two all quilted up and waiting to hear where to mail them.


And since I will be busy thru the weekend with a new venture, I am posting up my yellow for the Rainbow Challenge.  I always start with this large star block to use the larger bits of fabric first.


Then I move to the Sprouts blocks.  My bit of whimsy this time with the yellow?  Did you find the elephants?


Next I find material to play with these cute starlet blocks.


Last I make up the tiny log cabin blocks with what is left in the pile.  I didn't have a lot of yellow in that zip bag  - but it is used up (little bit left was cut down for the pre-cut barrels).

I did all my yellow scrapping in a couple of days rather than constantly pull that baggy out over the month - I have some fun other things to play with (new buttons on the side bar).  Will link up with ScrapHappy on Saturday - take a peek at what others are playing with their yellows.


This weekend I will be playing with this - New Christmas QAL with Joanna.  You can work on anything you like or take on the challenge - or both!  I have already pulled fabrics and patterns.  We are to have a weekend of RAIN from the tropical storm Andrea (hopefully no tornados).  Why not join us for the weekend - or even just one day.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

PS - prayers of safety for all on the East Coast as Andrea moves up the shore lines

  3. Since yellow is my favorite color Sharon, I loved these blocks. My bedroom is yellow and I have two yellow quilts in there - I just find that color soothing I think. And I love the picture of your cat. Funny that they prefer different colors. :) blessings, marlene

  5. Oh, I love, love, love yellow. I want to use it for the background on a scrappy quilt...your blocks are just inspiring to me, but I have no yellow scraps...maybe 2014?? Can I already have a list for then?

    I love how you did the stars.

  24. I don't know what it is about animals liking to come and sit on quilts that your trying to lay out! My dog does that all the time! Lovely yellows; very bright and sunny
