A finish!

Only two weeks ‘late’. This is January’s Monochromatic Challenge (Patchwork Times).

The things you discover when you try to pull from stash for a project like this: notice how all the yellows are so similar, no light, pastel, soft colors. All bright  yellows, with a few going towards  mustard.

Anyway, it is finished, and since I don’t know anyone who loves yellow dearly, this little quilt will go to my tiniest quilting assistant, my silky terrier Mac. He is forever supervising my work, always anchoring the quilt while I am trying to sew on binding. He manages to get himself wrapped up in whatever part of the quilt is on the floor. Each and every time I go to move the quilt to get to the next section, I have to pull and tug. I wonder how it has gotten so heavy, and then I realize he is rolled up somewhere inside.  How such a little dog can make a quilt so heavy, I will never know.

Still working on a name, considering both “Yellow Peril” and “Blinded by the Bright”.
