The Color Yellow

I finished up my block for the 2015 Crazy Quilt Calendar that I'll be publishing later this year.  I've taken photos and sent them off to Jason, my editor.  Since he works full time, I want to send him the projects as soon as they're ready to give him as much time as possible to put things together.

I'm so excited about this project.  I have the loveliest contributors, Crazy Quilt artists who do absolutely stunning work so this calendar will be pure, concentrated eye candy!  Stay tuned for updates!

My friend Michelle suggested that I do something yellow.  I don't know why but I don't do a lot of yellow projects.  It's not that I don't like yellow.  It's a very happy color!  So the other day when I had some free time, I pieced a few Crazy Quilt blocks and one of them is....yes, yellow!

The rose piece in the center is from my collection of vintage hankies.  I'll start stitching on this later this evening.

I don't think I'll have time for a blog post tomorrow.  I'm going to go and visit my aunt for awhile.  I'll be back on Monday with an update on this block.  Have a great weekend everyone!

What a great focal point the hanky is.

I don't use yellow much either, and like you I really don't know why. I need some sunshine (precious little of it outside...another freezing rain storm on the way). I'll be excited to see the calendar when it becomes available!!

So, true I rarely see yellow blocks. This is a beauty - can hardly wait to see what you do with it.
