The Quilt Show Puzzle: "They Call Me Mellow Yellow"
"Yellow" by Lynn Koolish

Doodled on her iPad in an art program first, Yellow (34" x 33") was a quilt that Lynn Koolish knew where she wanted to end up but didn't know how to get there. Knowing she had a great quilt, she had to work backwards from her drawing to figure out the piecing of the quilt.
