Mellow Yellow


There has been a bit of yellow sewing continuing around here.  This month’s color for the RSC14 is  YELLOW so I have added some yellow posies into my Moda Bake Shop Row By Row project. 


003

These, along with some orange and pinks, were added to make the next completed row.

005

Which color combination came first – the blocks or the garden????  Could I have a one track mind?

002

One last question……how many times have you ripped out the same seem?  Not that I would know anything about that, but am simply curious.  Winking smile

Onto the next row…….

  1. Love your flower row! I made mine like my flowers - a bit of a mix. No multiple seam ripping, but I totally forgot to mirror the leaves and had to do them over. Blame it on chain piecing around two furries.

  2. Love how your flowers grow. Both fabric and live.

    Ripped seams I have gone as many as five times or until I get it right or the fabric frays too much! My seam ripper and I are very good friends!

  3. I saw these posted on the Moda Bake Shop and wondered how they would look, absolutely adorable. May have to make these with my scrap greens once I finish my applique Baltimore Garden Quilt.

  4. What a lovely little garden, just like those beautiful roses. I don't often rip seams out more than twice but I have ripped a whole quilt apart because I couldn't live with one particular colour. At times it's just easier to recut the block to get it right.

  5. Beautiful roses!!!

    I will only rip out a seam twice. Then it either stays the way it is or gets pitched.

  6. Oh my goodness, I love your posies! I may have to find that pattern and save it with the rest of my "some day I would love to make this" pattern--LOL! Ripping out seams? A couple of times and then I just decide I have to live with it however it is together--perfectionist? Not!

  7. Hahaha!!! I don't believe I'll answer that question! Is there such a thing as taking "The Fifth" on a quilt question LOL? I love your colors - garden and blocks - but of course you know that :*)

  8. Cute, Cute, and Cute!!!!! Seam ripping, hahaha. I have to say, I probably lost count and then gave it up to work on it the next day. Your row along is too adorable.

  12. Twice is my limit ... Then it will just have to stay the way it is. I am testing that limit a few times with the HSTs in my chevron quilt. Sigh

  14. I've lost count of how many times I've ripped out the same seam. I try not to think about it, lol. Nature is the greatest inspiration. Your flower blocks are proof!

  15. Ripping is a way of life around my sewing area. I have several rippers and have been known to even us my rotary cutter a time or two.

  19. I love this row of flowers - so pretty. As are the real life flowers - beautiful! I rip up to 3 times, after that I decide it was meant to be how I don't want it!

  25. Your quilted flowers are as pretty as the real thing, Mary! Hee....let me count the ways I have ripped the same seam more than once!
    Cheers!

  26. Love your row by row flowers! The colors are perfection. I will usually only rip the same seam out 2-3 times, then it's time to start over. I'm afraid it will get too frayed, and fall apart when it's all put together.

  27. Oh Mary......those flowers are gorgeous!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I loooooooooooooooove IT!!!

  30. What lovely row of garden you are growing in your quilt. Yellow would lift the rest of the color. Beautiful Mary. Did the roses come from your garden? Hugs Nat

  31. Adorable. I love the dark grey/black you have surround the flowers.

  32. So bright and cheery! How long are your rows? I've been watching the Moda site. but haven't time to start another project. And I have ripped up to 3 times on one very short seam. Ha! Now you have to share too!

  33. Love your brights with the black backgrounds. Just GORGEOUS! What a fun quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a lovely row and vase of blooms!
    My limit is twice and then it gets put into the scrap bin.... or put into the quilt as is.

  35. Love the dark background that makes those posies Pop! I've been saving that pattern for a future project.

  37. I printed out the instructions for this block because I think it's so pretty! I will usually just rip a seam once and pin the heck out of it the next go around, but for my tone it down quilt I ripped some 3 times. But I did find that towards the end of making all those blocks I let some slide that at first I would have ripped. It seems I have a limit for striving for perfection.
