Scrappin’ with Yellow

I have a lot of yellow scraps, and because of that I do plan to do more with them this month than just some scrappy log cabins.  But first, let me show you the first 4 (that will be combined to equal one) blocks


I will do four more of the little blocks so that I will have a total of 8, which will equal two yellow circles (to accompany the two blue and two pink made so far this year).  But I will do something else with the rest, once I decide if I want HSTs, churn dashes, Dresdens, or strips for something with strippy blocks. Decisions, decisions.

And in the meantime, I have been working on the Birch Woods quilt for my grandson Easton. The colors and pattern were chosen by him (except the scrappy trees).I would like to finish this one in the next few days so I can gift it to him next Friday.


The blocks in the top 4 rows are sewn, but are just pinned (overlapping) because my design board area is too small.  There is a definite studio re-do in my summer this year..... Anyway, I just have the four bottom blocks to stitch, then can begin assembling the rows, etc. I have one extra block that I will make into a pillow.  Hopefully I will have more pix to show on this next week.

I have two other quilts in process, plus a crazy quilt wall hanging I would like to complete before month-end.

Linking up to ScrapHappy Saturday.  If you have scraps, why not join us?!?

The scrappy yellow, black and white log cabin blocks in that setting create such a pleasant secondary pattern. Just lovely.

Your yellow log cabin blocks are so sunny and bright! The Birch Tree quilt is going to be amazing!

The yellows look so happy. Love the birch trees, that one has been on my maybe someday list for quite a while. Such a great use of little bits.

I like your yellow log cabins with the black and white prints. Wish I enjoyed making log cabin blocks more; I would make some like yours!

I love those log cabins in the yellow!
I wish I had gone ahead and done log cabins or string blocks with my yellow instead of the crazy quilting that I am attempting.

Yellow! Looks great for the log cabins. Yellow is one of my faves. You will have a busy week finishing up the Birch Tree quilt - It will be woodsy and wonderful! Have fun!
