Rainbow Scrap Challenge Yellow

I have been poking through my stash looking for yellow fabric.  Yellow and orange always seem to be in short supply in my sewing room.  During this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I have been envious of Sharon V's Garlic Knot blocks.  I finally decided to make some of my own.  I used the tutorial offered by Angela (the hostess of the RSC) on her Super Scrappy blog.  I changed the size by using some of the 2.5 strips I had in my stash.  My version finishes at 8 inches instead of the original 6 inches.  Angela has lots of tutorials for six inch blocks that work well to use up scraps.

I made a few more blocks from the Dottie pattern and more four patches for my collection.
I enjoyed making the Knot blocks so much that I made them in other colors.
I also finished another scrappy top with blocks I made last summer. I loved being able to use lots of 2 inch scrap strips.
 Retired guy was kind enough to hold up the quilt for me and to pose with his new gardening hat.
My stylish new footwear has been keeping me close to home so I have extra time to sew.  I've gotten through the first week of the six week period.  I have a different style to wear while I sleep.  Hopefully, my Achilles tendon will heal and I will be able to avoid surgery.  In the meantime, please don't ask me to dance.
I'm linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at So Scrappy.  As usual, there are lots of great projects to see.
