When One Yellow Thing Leads to Another

A couple weeks ago, I showed this yellow monkey block, where I had fussy cut a little owl out of this fat quarter to make the center square.


And then, you know how it goes... I didn't put the owl fabric away, and the next time I noticed it, I had to make something more out of it.  So, it turned into this adorable 30 Minute Zipper Pouch!


This pouch deserves its own post, which I'll get to another day, but if you're curious about how to make one, you can find a free tutorial for it on Craftsy.

But then... since June is Yellow month in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and the leftover scraps from the pouch were just sitting there... I used some more to make a bow tie block!


I needed a couple more yellow bow ties, so I kept going, with other fabric - 


And that is my week in yellow!  

Here are all the bowties I've made so far this year.  I really like this layout, but of course, lots more are needed to make a quilt!  I'm just going to keep making them until I have enough for something!


Sharing over at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.  Be sure to check out the rest of the Rainbow Scrap Quilters to see what they've doing with yellow this month!

  3. What an adorable owl pouch! So cute in the smaller size. Bow ties are such a good go to block for using up scraps in two sizes.
