Okay, not really yards and yards of yellow, but scrap after scrap! The RSC color for April--a month that has flown by-- has been yellow, a color I love. Yellow is so happy! I used up a bunch of my yellow scraps this month in three different projects. Yellow is notoriously difficult to photograph, but trust me when I tell you that all of these yellows are very festive, even if they appear flat in the pictures. The first scrap project is the stars for the galaxy quilt:
Gosh, nature makes some vivid yellow, doesn't it? I had this forsythia bush that was still blooming, so I had to make use of those yellow flowers, didn't I? If you recall, these stars are to use up various dark blue half yards, since I rarely use dark blues. I love these stars and I think they're going to make a great quilt.
I also made the two yellow patchwork scrap stars this month:
I have a friend who has claimed this quilt, and so the bright turquoise and pink will be perfect for her. I've made do with a cute background for this picture to make up for the fabrics looking so flat.
The last project I used my scraps on were the 9-patches with white centers:
There is some terrific variety in those 9-patches. I got 10 of the yellows this month, plus two gold ones:
Those were a surprise. One of the yellow 9-patches was so surprised that it escaped and had to be hunted down and retrieved:
Thank goodness it wasn't very windy the day I took these, or we'd be down one 9-patch!
So now I'm all caught up on my scrap projects, and it's time to give away my remaining yellow scraps, like I am every RSC month this year. Here is this month's haul:
It turns out that I used a lot of yellow scraps this month! There are some nice yellow pieces here, but fewer than previous months. To fill out the package, I am including a half yard of a tan Grunge fabric by Moda, which I bought as a possibility for my St. James Church project, but didn't use. (I hope you can make it out in the picture. It kind of blends into the table.) This is your gain! The package also includes a handful of both 1-1/2 and 2-inch squares, including the leftover yellow 2-inchers.
This giveaway is now closed! Thanks to all!
Everyone have a lovely weekend. Here is one final look at the blooming forsythia, which is being pulled out sometime in the next couple of weeks for a major landscaping project. The project involves at least 5 truckloads of dirt. I'm dreading it, seriously!
