Yellow Scrappy.

It is very hot and sticky here, so inside things took over today.  We did do a bit of work on the wall I began last year, it's going to be a slow go unless it cools off some.  

When I came in I took the walking foot off the machine and stitched up this months scrappy blocks.  Yellow this month.  So here they are.

 And next to the other months blocks.  I think it will be a happy quilt!

I didn't make any blocks last month as the color was "neutrals" and I don't have many.  Didn't want to go buy any either so 24 blocks total.

I also went to the cemetery to visit Larry and stopped off after at the Quilt shop.  I bought some fat quarters for this scrappy project-I have no orange, purple or bright blue.  Odd, I joined this to use up fabric and am buying more, do I see a trend here?

Since I had to drag the iron and ironing board out for the yellow blocks, I've been ironing the pastel blocks of my leader and ender project as well.  I also put the walking foot back on to work on flannel blocks.  I really should be finished, just can't seem to Do it!

It is funny how fast using up scraps turns into making more. As long as such great looking blocks come out though, who are we to complain?

Warm and sticky would be nice - it is cool but sunny here (it is nearly winter). At least the yellow blocks on my design wall gave me a sunny feeling!

Your blocks look nice pinned together on your design wall.
