Quilting a Little Sunshine

It seems like the end of February is always a bit challenging for me when I'm at home with small children. A combination of endless rounds of sick kids (sometimes by the time the flu goes through all four of them, the one that started the last round gets something else . . .), bitter winds and general cloudy, snowy weather have been giving me the blues this winter. I feel something like this:

Fortunately, for me, I have lots of yellow fabric. LOTS of yellow fabric. So, since the sun won't shine, I decided to make some sun. This might be a tea cozy - one of a series for an etsy shop I'm planning on opening next month.
But then, now that its on my design wall, I could see six of these making a pretty fun baby quilt too . . .
Here's the grey for the "rain" blocks, which will probably have blue at the bottom.

Whatever this becomes, its keeping me from feeling so light deprived at the moment. Here's to cotton sunshine.
