Confession: Yellow is not a colour I'm especially fond of. I don't mind a bit of it, but certainly it is far, far, far from my favourite. But it seems I am fated to keep using it because so many people I'm sewing for in swaps and quilting bee groups really like it. So this yellow-hater is continually buying yellow fabric. I just picked up three FQs the other day! Just thinking of all the amazing pinks and teals and purples I had to leave behind makes me teary.
But I think all this forced sewing with yellow may be softening my stance. Just a teeny bit. Here are two Checker blocks I made for the final queen bee in my first group.
I also made her a basket, like I have for every queen bee this year. And I used my very own tutorial! I called it #basketinaflash and it was a thrill to see someone on IG already shared one she made.
And here is my practice Bunting Block for the first queen bee in my 2016 group. I made practice blocks all last year with one collection of fabric and plan to continue this year.
And, yes, there is yellow in this one I made myself. Every time I pull out this collection I wonder why I bought the bundle in the first place. It is totally not my usual colours, but I still quite like it. Maybe all the orange won me over.
