Scrappy Week – Day 2: Gold and Yellow

But before I show you the gold and yellow blocks, time for an update on the wine and burgundy ones. I made five more for a total of 30. I also made an odd ball one (not counting it). I like it but it will certainly stand out by a mile so I won’t include it. But I do like it!!

Here’s a new line up of the WINE blocks. 25 from yesterday and the new five.

Here’s the odd ball one. I didn’t notice as I was making it. It’s an angel inside a heart.

Made these today. 20 blocks in shades of GOLD. I got bored working with the same fabrics, didn’t have much, so I will swing back to this color if I find something later that goes well with the leftover scraps.

I like them. Reminds me of the desert. This is my favorite gold one.

Next, I moved to YELLOW. Slim pickings. I guess you can tell from my scraps which colors I prefer to work with. Hardly any yellow.

I scraped together eight blocks by adding these prints from my stash. I cut a 10″ square from each.

And after all that, YUCK!! And I don’t have a favorite. I may take these apart and add a more eye catchy print. For now, it is what it is. 😀

Well….. there you have it. 58 blocks made in two days. 4 1/2″ square each.

30 Wine/Burgundy
20 Gold
8 Yellow

I think I will work on black next. My polka dots!! Yum. I can feel the excitement already.

    Hi Donna, The first two sets are gorgeous!! As for the yellow, I think these could totally pop as well I can’t speak “quilt”, but I’ll try to explain my idea. I would try for the blocks to be maybe 40 to 60% of the whole top. The green background of the large floral would be the main background, with accents of fuschia and/or red and blue, like in your striped fabric mixed in somehow. At any rate, pulling in more of those colors might perk it up.

    Hi KipperCat, thanks much for the suggestion on how to jazz up the yellow. I totally agree it needs some spicing up. What I am trying to do is make blocks with a variety of prints in the same color line. So I would have a yellow block, a blue block, a red block and so forth. I will come back to yellow and redo them.

      I see! The wine and gold squares look so good, I thought they would each be the basis for their own design. Now i remember that your designs always have more color going on than that. See, I’m learning here, not just enjoying the eye candy. 🙂
