Quite the opposite in fact. I'd say it's more like "so screamingly bright you couldn't possibly miss this" yellow. It's our new picnic blanket, or sunshine quilt as I am optimistically calling it, made from thrifted pillowcases for the top, a thrifted fleece blanket for the batting and a thrifted sheet for the back.
That's right, thrifted, thrifted, thrifted and very loud.
The pillowcases have been purchased over the last year ever since I finished up my baby zig zag quilt. I'm not sure if I'm just drawn to their sunny cheer, but there always seems to be an abundance of vintage yellow sheets and pillowcases to be found, more than any other colour. Not that I'm complaining of course.
For the first time ever, I sewed the binding by machine because I was just too plain lazy to do it by hand and you know what? It looks absolutely fine. I'm so rebellious, I may never go back to hand sewing binding again.
The weather has been spectacular this weekend, so it had its first grass testing and I'm hoping the craziness of the patterns will cover up all manner of spillages and stains.
Let the picnicing begin!
