Yellow things

For Project Yellow
This morn when going through some of the blogs I visit, I came across Anna Carson's Yellow Project while visiting Strolling Through Georgia. I immediately thought of my quilts because lately I seem to always insert quite a bit of yellow. The above is my own quilt, River of Light. It is something that I came up with--sort of own my own with a little inspiration from a couple sources. I started it probably the last part of 2004 or early 2005 when I was still working, and finished it in 2006.
Then today I happened to finally notice that I do have some daffodils blooming...I have two blooms. I am not sure if the rest are going to bloom or not. These are two different blooms, with the bottom bloom that was not fully open really being cropped.

Of course I cannot forget the golden yellow of ginseng in the fall...you have to see it in person to appreciate it.
And of course, when I think of yellow, I think of Tidy Cat cat litter--with four cats in the house I go through quite a bit of this stuff. I am so glad I have a basement:-)

Wonderful entries for project yellow - I love that quilt. My MIL was a quilter.
I've been doing project yellow with Anna this week too; so if you get a minute stop by. I've done two posts and plan to finish the week with it.

I did a yellow post today and may do more later in the week. Your quilt is lovely. I looked up some blocks because it looked as if something similar could be done with a traditional block that I've seen. The block I found is Roman Strip. It is a square divided diagonally with one half solid and the other striped. If you put four of them together right you would have a pattern similar to yours, but I think I like how you did it even better.

I don't do much quilty in my blog, though I am very active in an online quilt group. I guess it is my other life.

What a beautiful quilt.
having 10 cats, the only thing i use is Shweats cat litter. It is organic, flushable and litterly no urine odor.
I have never found any other cat litter that works as well as this.
