Never Yellow


I’ve never been a yellow person. Blues, reds, lavender, and even the occasional green or brown, but never yellow. Kaffe Fassett has changed all that for me. I found these two fabrics on the left and decided they should become the border and sashing of a scrappy quilt using a variety of his fabrics cut into 6″ squares.Ā I then began collecting the scraps and laid them out to see how they looked together.Ā I’m pleased and I’m ready to begin stitching. My tastes seem to be totally changing as I approach my 80th birthday. What a surprise!

  1. Wonderful, vibrant colors! I’m a yellow person, Carol. Love to wear it but always a little worried about decorating with it. Your quilt is making me rethink that!

  2. I also have recently discovered Kaffe Fassett and fallen in love with his many jewel toned prints. This is going to be a lovely quilt and I look forward to seeing your finish on this one! šŸ™‚

  3. Love the polka dot fabric! It’s interesting, but I don’t have very much yellow in my stash. Glad to see you bringing it to the forefront. The size of the blocks and setting them on point gives Kaffe’s fabric an air of sophistication. Can’t wait to see the finished project!

  4. Your combination of fabrics, for the blocks, sashing, and border is fantastic! I am glad to see you come out of your crayon box! It looks sunny and happy!
