I love the happy yellow! I need to find more buttery yellow to add to my stash. I have a ton of gold yellow but there seems to be a lack of butter cream or soft yellow available in fabric collections. I am not a huge gold fan so I would be over the moon if designers started offering softer yellows.
I have been using Aurifil 50wt thread for all of my blocks. The lovely 2 ply thread is makes for perfect piecing with less bulk and virtually lint free so it is better for your machine!
