sunny
























I have been thinking about making a yellow quilt for a while. Monochromatic color quilts is a challenge. I would like a whole series. So, maybe start with the color yellow?
I decided to have a go using 2.5" strips, both long and short. Stash and scraps. Starting with a few Kaffe Fassett and adding on....

The top came together fairly quickly. You can do this in a jelly roll race technique. I used my design wall to have better control over the color (hue and value) distribution. The top is 60" by 75". And needing a infill patch in the bottom jagged line. Maybe you spotted it?




































Top catching the early tuesday sun rays... Wish you a sunny day, too!

What a gorgeous burst of colour. Our sun has disappeared again but your quilt has such optimistic colours

Hei!! Liker ideen om å lage quilter i en farge!!Eller en farge er vel ikke helt sant:-) Likte at det tverrstripete stoffet har en helt konkret skillelinje på midten!!
Har akkurat bestilt billetter til london. Skal se Kaffe Fasett utstillingen.......Ak:-)

My son asked me to make him a yellow quilt. He called it a quilt of sunshine, and said he wanted to use when he brought a girlfriend to a picnic or fireworks. I made it for him and it was gorgeous, but I don't think it will ever touch the ground. I love your yellow quilt. I have also made all red, all blue, and all green quilts. I love the challenge they provide.

It's super pretty Marit - I love the idea of a monochromatic strip quilt - you must enter this in Rachel's string Attack Challenge which has just started :)

How fun! Monochromatic is always a good look. You'll have to start work on the next in your series now =)

Very sunny! I found you through Rachel's String Festival and am a new follower. I like the idea of a series, each quilt in a different monochromatic color. Wish I had the time for something like that. Have fun with it!
