Patchwork Squares With Yellow

Earlier this fall I pieced several more rows for patchwork squares with yellow. They have been sewn to the small body. The width of the top measures approximately 36" - 37". There is a long way to go yet before this flimsy is ready to be quilted.

I have decided to quit using the light fabrics, they just don't show against the soft yellow. I think it looks like a hole in the quilt!

Ignore those two blocks on the right side, those are squirrels that are running around in my sewing room.

When I cut the background squares for my Hearts & Wreaths applique blocks, I had a section of soft yellow that wasn't large enough for an applique block. That fabric has been cut into squares and added to this quilt.

Here is a former post about patchwork squares.

You are doing a happy scraps quilt, Gretchen, the pale yellow squares join all others so well.

You are encouraging me to make one. I looked at your previous post about the triangles on the end but I didn't see the size of your squares. I really like the yellow.

I must admit the blue blocks are really standing out against that lovely yellow. I am auditioning a yellow for my next major project...not that easy to do as the yellows cover a wide field of shades.
Meanwhile, I am thankful for your blog and the inspiration it never fails to give me, Gretchen. A wonderful Christmas to You!

My squares are cut at 2.5", finish at 2". The colored blocks are mostly already cut squares from the 2.5" box.

Another great project in the works Gretchen!
