Assorted y ellow shirts have become a yellow quilt, along with some Les Olivades fabric I fortuitously found as a child's pinafore in an op shop (after I virtuously passed on the Les O. sale, sorely tempted though I was)..
It's a sunny, cheerful one, quilted enough but not too much, so it stays soft. While uber-freemotion can be grand and wonderful, all those lines of stitching do stiffen up a quilt. This one, with the softness of recycled fabrics and the right amount of quilting, will be good as an everyday sofa quilt as the cooler days of autumn (hurrah! hurray!) come upon us.
It's amusing, reading northern hemisphere blogs welcoming spring, while here, exhausted from summer, we're glad to have autumn.
PS. In response to comments, this may have had something to do with the design of the quilt - and I didn't think of calling it Daffodil something, but maybe I should. A field of daffodils is a wonderful thing (it's bulb catalogue time here, planning for what may come). I'm coming to the opinion that yellow can be like red, in quilting - all reds go together, and yellows various seem pretty happy too. And greens work, and blues...maybe sometimes we assume rather than exploring. Yellow's a harder colour to wear as clothes, perhaps that influences quilters (actually, I do believe clothing colours influence quilters, when they shouldn't, unless wearable clothing's your thing).
