This year is apparently a yellow year, so it's fitting that I have found inspiration in my stash....yellow and grey.
Just perfect for the sketch I have in mind. I was thinking all yesterday, and was torn between applique or stenciling for this quilt and I even dug out some great greys to applique with...but as I spent more time working on the design, it was just so obvious that it had to be a stencil quilt! The yellow is a beautiful rich butter tone in silk linen, and I am excited with what will come of it. I also can't believe how good stash busting still feels...and what treasures can be found tucked away and forgotten.
I am inspired and ready to stencil. This quilt is taking shape quite quickly so I will keep you posted...
