Yellow By Golly!

A couple of weeks ago, I just started sewing yellow scraps together for the sheer fun and happiness of it all.
Winter is gray and blah here in Cornland and yellow is one of my favorite colors.
It never fails to bring a smile!

 These came next. 

And the next thing you know, I have two complete blocks.

All together, I made nine and here is where I am now.  I finished off the edges because I do not want to make another large top.  LOL  I have enough of them not finished around here.
Maybe a mini quilt?

They are known as Ozark Tiles or Shoo Fly blocks, and now that I've made them, it seems I see them everywhere!
Here are some beautiful examples I've found.

Last week, Quilt Story had 64 linky entries!
Freshly Pieced had 238!
And Crazy Mom Quilts had 114!

If these linky parties don't get a person motivated, nothing will!  Take some time to go look and "ooh" and "aah" at all the quiltey goodness going on in the world.
Helps with all the blah going on here in Soybean Springs!


  1. Your yellows look lovely. I sorted my fabric stash at the weekend and the yellows really caught my eye too. They are in line for the next project.

  2. oooh! I completely LOVE the yellows!!! your blocks are beautiful! hmmm I have yellows but now I think I need more :)

  3. Yellow is great. Such pretty blocks. How about putting borders on like the last example you showed, and making a wall quilt or a lap quilt?

  4. I love the sweetness of the soft.

  5. I love the yellow. A nice cherry color for cold winter months. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love it! especially in yellow,so cheery.

  7. This is great! Yellow is my favorite color too!

  8. Your mini top is Sew-Weet! I must agree, we could all use a little sunshine during these drab days of winter. Love the Keepsake Quilting layout you displayed. Thanks for sharing!


Love hearing from bloggers wherever you are!
