As you might infer from the yardage, this turned out kind of small. So I blocked the bejeezus out of it … and, let me tell you, that Jitterbug really grows. I don’t have blocking wires (yet) so I pinned out shallow scallops. It’s soft and lovely. And very, very yellow.
So yellow, it’s even bright on a grey northwest day.
