Yellow Swap and A Couple More Quilt Blocks



I got my "Yellow Swap" in the mail this week. Some yellow fat quarters (I can always use more fabric), pins (who doesn't need more of these) notice the yellow heads, yellow thread to go with my yellow fabric, and a yellow note pad. I like all of the fabrics, but the top one is my favorite. I'm always looking for paper to jot new ideas down on so the note pad will come in very handy. And pins and thread...what can I say...Love them all. Thanks a ton Missy!


Here are a couple more blocks from the star quilt I'm working on with Amanda over at http://www.crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/ . These are blocks 3 and 4.
















I've been working on my setting blocks, they're blue and white, along with blocks 5 and 6. Pics will be up soon of them along with block 3 from my BOM that I'm doing at the Fabric Mill. Notice that my blocks haven't been squared up yet...for some reason I don't do that until all blocks are made. I think it gives me a little more fudge room, if you know what I mean...
Hope you all have a GREAT day!

The red stars are stunning. I can't wait to see it all together.

LOVE all the yellows. It is one of the cheeriest colors, isn't it? Yes, a quilter can certainly use all of the items you received.
