I have not had a lot of time for sewing yellow scrappy blocks because my Guild challenge is due on Tuesday and I have been spending my time sewing it , figuring out how to quilt it and practicing ,practicing,practicing. First on paper and then on a quilt sandwich as I am a fairly novice free motion quilter. Here's a picture of a practice quilt motif for part of the quilt. I should have practiced on yellow.
Getting back to yellow. Yellow is one of the colours of the challenge fabric and as my challenge piece is pretty small I will have lot's of leftovers to use in scraps later in the month. Yay!
I do have one yellow block to share with you. Last night when my brain was tired of all the fmq drawing and practice I decided to make a medallion block using Tanya's excellent tutorial. Many of you have probably seen this already. I was pretty tired but I managed to cut out all the fabric for each of the 4 sub blocks that make up the big block, and to sew one sub block. This morning I decided to quickly chain piece the other three. Whoops!
The block on the top left is pieced correctly and the other two are not. I can hear my mother whispering in my ear "haste makes waste" The mistake happened back on log two. So after some unsewing and resewing I finished the medallion block.
I'm linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at So Scrappy, then I'm back to the Challenge.
