Mellow yellow

Made up the first block from the Soul Searching workshop this afternoon,  I'm pleased with how the yellows have worked out, it does look better in real life, I had to use the flash as we are about to experience a thunderstorm and the light isn't very good anywhere in the house.

This is a huge 24" block and just looking at it the photo now I can see that I need to pay more attention to how I stitch the strips together.  Instead of stitching them from the same end each time, I need to alternate ends which should stop the slight curve that you can see at the bottom right hand corner occurring again. 


  1. looks great Pip, and after today i have a greater appreciation of the thought that goes into it.

  2. That's a very interesting block and I love your color choices. I look forward to seeing your progress.

  3. Not surprised you jumped straight into construction . . . No need to focus on the curve when these gorgeous colours beckon!
    From Provence to Kaffe to Aboriginals . . what an eclectic collection.
    Cant wait to see the whole result Pip.

  4. Wow, that's pretty! I'd forgotten how i love yellow and black and white together.

  5. What a great block Pip!
    I look forward to seeing how this all turns out.
