Scrappy Saturday - Yellow

Yellow is the colour of the month at the Rainbow Challenge and we are digging into the scrap bins to find the sunshine!
I was given these wonderful batik scraps which are perfect for my Alamo Star blocks. I laid out all the scraps and started cutting pieces using my Tri-Recs rulers. 



I have 8 Alamo Star blocks ready to sew as leader/enders this month. 





I was able to sew 4 little stars with some yellow in them, but look forward to getting the rest of these blocks sewn up this month.



I have been surrounded by yellow (and blue) quilts this week. It's odd how that happens.

First - I have been working on my log cabin blocks and have a big hunk of the corner sewn together now.

Second - I adopted this yellow and blue quilt when I was at guild meeting (it was random, I have no idea why I did that!)  I started machine quilting it yesterday. 

Third - I sewed a label on a donation quilt made by my little sewing group. The fabric was all from our stashes, and we were amazed at how big it became - 80" x 109".  One of the group members thought it should be long enough to have a pillow tuck at the top. 




It's long enough for a pillow tuck, and then some! It needs to go to a home with tall people ;) 
Anyway, the quilt is hand quilted and will be auctioned at the Mennonite Relief Sale on the last Saturday in May.

So much yellow this month. You've gotten a lot done so far. Congratulations! Those Alamo stars get cuter each time I see them.

You've been busy this week! I love the batiks - such vibrant colours and yellow is a great colour to be working with at this time of year, isn't it? A taste of spring to come. On that note, tulips are my favourite cut flowers and your pink ones are beautiful.
