Yellow Fever

Well, I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who likes yellow! Being such a happy colour, I think it's impossible not to like it. Quite a few of you are now keen to make your own yellow quilt, so I'm happy to hear you have been inspired.

As for me, I've been busy cutting.

There is nothing nicer than a stack of squares, all neatly cut up and just waiting to be sewn.
And, how's this for fabric cheerfulness?? All the sewn squares blissfully blowing in the breeze.

And slowly being sewn together. I love this simple little block.

I just can't get over how happy these blocks are making me feel! I was seriously sitting there with a big smile on my face as I was sewing!

So can you tell it's been a bit of yellow fever here lately? I even bought a bundle of yellow flowers from the nursery and potted them up.


And just to spread the 'yellow cheer,' the winner of the yellow fatquarter is Jeanette from QLD! Congratulations Jeanette! I hope you enjoy using it and I'll be in touch shortly.


And finally - I won something!! The wonderfully talented Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches was having a giveaway of her latest pattern. And yup, I won a copy! I'm awfully excited as I just love Natalies designs. I can't wait to start sewing!

Keep smiling and enjoy the yellow!
