A to Z Quilt Challenge: Y = Yellow

 For the month of April, I have taken up Frédérique's Quilting Patchwork and Applique challenge to blog daily (except Sundays) on a quilt topic related to a letter of the alphabet.  

* * * * * * * * * *

When I first started quilting, if you had asked me if I liked the color Yellow, I probably would have said "not particularly".  Then this project came into my life:

My darling Floribunda!

After working with a scrappy selection of yellow solids to make Bonnie Hunter's "Floribunda" quilt, I was hooked on yellows!  Ever since, I have been stashing yellows for that "one day" all-yellow quilt project.

I've also been stashing inspiration but haven't settled on what I will make yet. 

Piecing? Applique? Add other colors?

Whatever it is it will be scrappy!  I'm definitely looking forward to see where the Quilt Muses will point me!

Edited 5/5/21 to Add:  Just came across this post from one of my favorite scrappy quilters, Cathy of the Sane, Crazy and Crumby blog.  She did a post last fall where she used her yellow scraps to make up a number of different blocks.  If you'd like to see yellow hard at work, go check out her post!

Do you like working with the color Yellow?  Have you used it extensively in a quilt?

Linking up with Frédérique and the other Challengers at Quilting Patchwork and Applique.  Bonne journée!

Yellow is such a happy color, bright and cheerful. I love blue and yellow together ;)

Love your Floribunda! I like yellows, but haven't made any particularly yellow projects that I can think of.
