Stitching Yellow RSC blocks

This month the colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is yellow.  This fun challenge is run by Angela of Sew Scrappy.   I didn’t have a lot of yellow in my stash at all, it’s obviously not a colour I use a lot of.  But I found enough to stitch up four Bow Tie blocks to add to my collection.  As an extra I’ve been stitching up my bonus triangles to make tiny HST blocks too, so these will be saved till the end of the challenge and I may be able to use them somewhere when the blocks are assembled.

Then I made two yellow Asterisk blocks, using up a few more selvedges.I wasn’t sure about continuing with these, but they have been growing on me and now I quite like these blocks.  Perhaps they will become something for me eventually.

Gemma was very interested in what I was doing as I was laying the blocks on the carpet to take photos.  “What about me?”, she seemed to be saying as she lay down on top of them.  I’m pleased she takes an interest in my sewing!  Gemma is certainly feeling the heat on our hot sunny days.

Me too!

Fun blocks! Yellow is a rare color in my fabric stash, too. I doubt, however, I would find enough to make this many blocks.

Yellow or lemon is scarce in my stash too, but once I was told, You need some yellow to add some ZING!! Gemma, stretch out there, cooler this morning here.

It is surprising to see which colours we use a lot, and I think for most of us that yellow is not one of them. Love the blocks you have made.

I love yellow, it appears in nearly every quilt I make! I really like the way you have used the selvedges :)

Gemma obviously (lol) loving your blocks! I've never made bow ties or that really cute asterisk block either. Nice choices...hugs, Julierose

Lovely job and choices on your yellow blocks! Animals do feel the heat so much! My old doggie used to lie on anything I lay out on the floor too lol!

The blocks have come up well. I didn't have a lot of yellow either. What is it about cats, put some fabric on the floor and they have to lie or sit on it.
