Do you like yellow?
I decided the other day it was time to add some solids and more yellows from my stash and get the quilt going.
I picked the "Happy Hour" book by Atkinson Designs and the pattern is "Snapshots". NOW...I'd have loved to make the 14 inch blocks but somehow buying fat quarters does not insure that you get an exact 22 x 18 inch piece of workable fabric, especially after washing it. So, I've had to settle for making 9 inch blocks which means to make a queen size top, I'll be making about 80 blocks or so..... eek!
Yeah...the yellow looks much brighter in these pictures than it really is and this is not the real layout, I just threw them on the floor so I could take a picture.....
OH...and coincidentally, at retreat back in May, my friend Laura was working with these exact fabrics. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA (you firecracker).
I wish I'd taken a picture of her project but somehow that slipped past me.
I guess over the next week or two I'll get these assembled and a final picture posted.
In the meantime, Happy 4th of July!
