Scrap Happy Saturday: Shades of Yellow Fabric Therapy

So many distractions this week!  Still, I managed to find time for fabric therapy - thank goodness!

I've spent a good bit of time playing with yellow scraps and yardage, as yellow is this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color.  Angela posted several new blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Sampler and I coordinated and cut all the pieces for a yellow Carpenter's Wheel block.
Doesn't the Wacky Pinwheel block remind you of a bow on a gift package?
The Alamo Star block gave me an excuse to use the Tri-Recs ruler - my new favorite piecing tool.
The Economy Block was perfect for using some yellows that have a gray undertone.
The Bright Hopes block used a neat technique for piecing the inset block without using Y seams.
I also finished a 16 patch block, which will eventually become a star.

As always, there will be lots of yellow inspiration over at Angela's Soscrappy blog.  I'm going to allow myself to be distracted by that - as well as watching a World Cup game between England and Italy.

  9. Love your fabrics and blocks. I think 16 patch blocks are probably my favorite. A fun way to us up small scraps.
