All throughout September the Goldenrod is in bloom everywhere! While it usually takes the blame for our autumn allergies, this year it's radiant yellow prominence against the deep greenery, blue skies, and browning landscape has me inspired!
First to pull out what was left of my Sweet as Honey fat quarter bundle for some comfy, quilted pillow making! Made using my favorite pillow pattern found here in issue 8 of Love Patchwork quilting (again), bound in the bright orange Meadow print Gentle Breeze, and backed in my two favorite Sweet as Honey prints - Fly by Day and Rooted Midnight from the Spring Harvest colorway!
Then I was reminded of how much I loved that set of yellow & orange pillows I made for the magazine and gifted to my Aunt, combined with all that pretty Goldrenrod and the vase of yellow Alstroemeria as my inspiration, once again I pulled from my stash a collection of fabrics ranging in color from buttery cream to glowing tangerine, but this time with a new quilt top in mind!
This morning I finished up chain piecing my 7" squares of orange fabrics and now I'm moving onto the yellows! I'm hoping to finish in time to capture this new quilt top with it's inspired golden backdrop!
Wish me luck!!
