The Rainbow Connection - Update

Here's an update on my Rainbow Connection hexagon quilt.  I've been adding some yellow hexies this week. What a difference that makes.  The bright and warm yellows going around the edges really changes the look and feel of the whole quilt.  I can't wait to see what happens next!

Do you use yellows in your quilts?  Leave a comment below.

Have a wonderful day,
