The Robert Kaufman Fabrics company has chosen this dynamic yellow, "Highlight" as their Color of the Year for 2016.
And I've chosen to make this quilt with it!
This is only the first four rows -- because I was distracted and mis-cut the yellow fabric! I had a half rollup, but cut the yardage into the 2½" strips. Which meant I didn't have enough to cut all the larger strips I need!
Lucky for me, I got the fabric from Ruth's Stitchery, and I'll be able to get more tomorrow. Here is the pattern I'm using, from "Quilts from the House of Tula Pink." Ruth's has ordered the book, too.
Robert Kaufman is hosting a block challenge on their Instagram page. Sadly, I don't think I'll have mine finished in time for the March 1 deadline. But you're going to love the surprise I have planned for this two-color quilt!
Hope to see you tomorrow for the March UFO Parade!
