A finish makes me mellow for yellow on Design Wall Monday

I was able to sew for a couple of hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - it was great! First things first.... my Dazzling Debbies quilt - it is completely sewn together!

I am very happy with the way it turned out and can't wait to send it off to my long arm quilter. Another quilt completely from my stash - so it is a free quilt, right?? (don't burst my bubble here - LOL)

And completing that quilt got it off the design wall and gave me the chance to play with these mellow yellow blocks.

Now those 36 patch blocks on the left hand side of the wall include ones I showed a couple of weeks ago and I had them set on point. However, they seem to vibrate which made me a bit quesy so I turned them. They are a bit calmer set straight and I still need to sew up a bunch more. I'd like to come up with an interesting setting for these but nothing has come to mind yet.

These half dozen yellow blocks are from the book Scrap-Basket Sensations the Flowers for Nana's Girl quilt and I have to give credit to Annie at Annie's Quilt Orts. She has sewn a wonderful quilt using yellow with this pattern and I couldn't resist doing one for me. I'm liking these set on point a lot! All of the blocks I'm sewing here use fabrics from my stash. (another FREE quilt!) I have a lovely stash of yellows since it is my favorite color. When I started the flower blocks yesterday I knew I wanted to use a white on white background. The first fabric I pulled off the shelf was a WOW polka dot but as I unfolded it there were a bunch of spots and stains that I don't know how they got there. I will have to wash it before I can cut it up. So I went searching for another fabric and found this one....

WOW tulips. I love this one and have been saving it, but I'm not sure what I was saving it for. I know that I purchased this fabric in Modesto, California. I haven't lived in Modesto for over 18 years....ummmm.... I think it is time to use it.

Okay, I'm off to run my Monday driving marathon. This week along with the trips to school for my son and his volunteer job I'm adding a trip downtown for dinner and then off to see Wicked with my niece - its going to be a jammed packed day!

Happy stitching-
