They called it Yellow, yellow, yellow...

Possibly lyrics from a Cold Play song?  Not sure...

Yellow is the colour for June in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Once again I'm making a scrap bucket.  I decided to have a good old play around with HSTs as I love them.  I did the 4 at a time method, then played around with the arrangements.


The entire set of blocks was done as leaders and enders whilst piecing the Stained Glass QAL blocks (I need to come up with my own name for that quilt!).  I love leaders and enders. As I've now finished these yellow blocks, they're just waiting to be quilted and turned into the basket, I had to find a new leaders and enders project....  I think I've just started a new quilt!

it is great how half square triangles make into so many different blocks, nice selection you have here

Well, since patchwork originated as a means to make use of odds and ends, that all seems reasonable to me!

I've never heard of that song by Cold Play but now I've got Mellow Yellow playing in my head... lol. I love your yellow blocks!

I recently saw a new-to-me HST layout made with dark/light HST's - it made a design similar to a herringbone! I quite like it and would love to make a baby quilt like that :)

Some lovely soft yellows there, looking forward to seeing another basket

Hi Wendy,
I love the tones you've used. It's going to rather gorgeous when it's finished.
Cheers, Anita.

I love the vintage, scrappy look of these blocks.
