I've seen blue quilts, pink quilts, red quilts and green quilts. I've seen blue and yellow quilts, or purple and yellow quilts. But I've never seen an all yellow quilt. This thought struck me the other day, quite out of the blue, and I've been thinking about it ever since.

Why don't we use yellow as the predominant colour in our sewing? I'm sure we all love yellow, I mean, it's the colour of happiness! It's a bright and cheerful colour, and you can't help but smile when you're surrounded by yellow. Nature uses yellow in abundance, from the bright sun, through to the sand on the beach, and all the hundreds of yellow flowers.

So I've issued myself a challenge. To create a quilt entirely using yellow coloured fabric. No pink. No green. No blue. No nothing else but yellow.
And I was quite suprised when I raided my stash and realised I actually had alot of yellow fabric. And not only yellow fabric, but yellow fabric that all went with each other. I only ended up buying 2 small bits of yellow from work, just to add to the pile.
So, my goal? To turn this pile of sunshine fabric into something pretty. Something that doesn't make one reach for the sunglasses. But a quilt that does justice to the beautiful colour.
Well, that's the plan anyway. I guess we will only find out in time whether a full yellow quilt actually looks good or not!
