Color Challenge - Yellow

March has been B.U.S.Y.!  I shared at the beginning of the month all of the various activities... you can catch the line-up here.

It seems like long ago that I made my yellow block for the March 2018 Monthly Color Challenge.  It features flying geese - one of my favorite blocks...  However, to be completely honest, yellow is not among my favorite colors.

Yellow =  sunshine.  Yellow = sunflowers.  Yellow = my Grandma's favorite color.

All things that I love. So...

Maybe it is because I cannot wear the color yellow? Seriously!  It makes me look ill!  I'm not sure...  

None the less, I am not afraid to use the color yellow, it just isn't one that I naturally gravitate to. That would be blue for me!  It's like a magnetic draw. 

And if you look closely, (but who will do this?  I am not submitting for judging), this is not one of my better constructed blocks... I'm not sure what happened, but I have a few points missing. Hmmmm....  I think I used the 1/4" foot rather than the scant 1/4" setting on my machine.  

I could have, and probably should have, ripped out stitches.  But... no.  In the end, when the blocks are all assembled it will "add character" right?  This is what they say about imperfections... they add character... or interest... or whatever.  LOL.

Note to self! Always use the scant 1/4" setting!

Are YOU a lover of yellow???  
What color do YOU feel a pull toward???  

I would love to hear from you... leave a comment below.

It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiney day!

Go quilt something,

  1. I do like yellow, but have found myself using orange a lot more instead of yellow recently. Lovely block!

  2. I just recently read through one of Bonnie Hunter's scrap quilt books that features yellow prominently and I am very tempted to make it! It is stunning! I don't dislike yellow but I never really have been inspired to make a whole quilt with yellow as the main color. Red calls me a lot though. :)

  3. I do like yellow but have very little of it. I have in mind a pale yellow and light gray wallflower quilt in my future.

  4. I think is looks lovely! Very nice!

  5. I also love yellow, yet have little of it. I still need to make my yellow item! I sure hope I can squeeze is it before the month ends. Your block is pretty. :)
