I went through my 2.5 inch fabric bin and pulled out 25 different blues and 25 different yellows to make all the blocks. I was worried I wouldn't have enough yellows, but sure enough I did. I had exactly enough. The blues I had plenty of, I even had the option to pick which ones I wanted to go in the quilt and which ones I didn't.
I also cut enough white square to go with all the blue and yellow squares. Later on this week I will mark all the white squares and sew all the half square triangles together. I am very excited that I will have my very own blue and yellow quilt.
Blue and yellow together is one of my favorite color combinations. I have made quite a few quilts in this color combo, but I have given them all away. One of my favorites was made in 2004. I gave it to my brother for Christmas that year. It was my first monkey wrench quilt. A lot of the leftovers of that quilt will be going into this Mon Ami quilt.
Funny how I thought I had a really good camera back then. I thought all my pictures turned out really neat, but as I went back to find this photo, I realized that my camera back then didn't take pictures as well as the one I use today. That makes me wonder how my pictures will look 6 more years from now. I don't see how they can get better, but then again, I thought the same thing 6 years ago.
