I'd heard about yellow early in my quilting experience.
"Yellow is tricky," someone said.
"Be really careful with yellow," said another.
But a third said, "I think every quilt should have at least a little bit of yellow in it."
These baskets have been up on my wall for more than a week now. Prolly more than two weeks. And I've looked at them a lot. I do love them. This may be one quilt I never finish simply because I love having them up on the wall.
But that yellow. It reminds me of a crayon from the old 64-set when I was knee-high to a whatever; it was called chromium yellow. A pull-no-punches yellow. An in-your-face yellow before we knew the expression.
And here it is hanging on my wall in three of my precious blocks. Part of me thinks I should take the yellows out and replace them with something less sensational. Another part thinks it is just splendid where it is.
What do you think?
