2014 RSC June, Yellow Week 3 and Wishes Sew Along May and June Blocks


After a week of playing with yellow I'll add four 8.5" string blocks, four 5.5" cocoa mug blocks, and a 6.5" midget block to my collections. A green and yellow cotton knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. To see what others made with their yellow scraps, go here Saturday.


I'm participating in Fat Quarter shop's Wishes Sew Along. Pictured are May and June blocks. It's not to late to sew along. The blocks are not to difficult to make because the directions are excellent.

More deliscious yellows. I like the Wishes quilt, but I am up to my armpits with projects.

Love the yellow strings! The wishes blocks are are so fun and playful. I really must finish off a UFO or five before I can start something new. Now to find time to get into the sewing room....

String blocks are always such nice surprises. Love the cocoa mugs - wouldn't they make neat mug rugs. I'll have to chase down a pattern for them and see how that would work.

I really like that log cabin variation... that would make a great scrappy quilt!

I like your yellow cocoa cups. The stringy squares are a good idea for using scraps. I must remember that one.

Love those string blocks. I've had an urge to start playing with a few strings and seeing yours might have just pushed me over the edge. So pretty!

Always love string blocks and I really need a mug quilt to use when I sip my tea and there is a chill in the air. Your yellow blocks are wonderful!

What wool do you use for your dishcloths.
And what pattern

Sheila, you are going to have some wonderful rainbow projects at the end of the year. I am especially looking forward to seeing the houses as a top.

Ellen said...

Lots of wonderful yellow scrappiness!

oh....a string quilt with yellow would be awesome for me.
In that photo there is a block on the far right in the middle.
I'm looking at it and for the life of me can't figure out how you put that together!
