AHIQ Prompt July 2022: Sun

 Our family is already anticipating the solar eclipse that crosses Texas in 2024. Since some of them live in the path of totality, there's a place to easily visit and view. With my mind stuck on sun and eclipse not to mention sunrise, sunset, sunshine... SUN seems like a possible prompt.

How to start?Use the color or a traditional block including medallions, rising sun, and a galaxy of star blocks. Songs and quotes often include the sun. Some of my favorites include: 

    Peter Pan is the sun and the moon and the stars!
    Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.
    It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day. 

Whether you create a paean to our bright, particular star; segue off a traditional design; or simply grab your yellows, Here Comes the Sun!  "It's been a long, cold lonely winter." Let's make some time for joy. #AHIQSun is the tag so we can all follow your work. 

Join the celebration!

For the Americans, Happy Fourth of July!

GREAT prompt, Ann! I have at least one yellow quilt in the planning stages - Here Comes the Sun will guide me forward now. Hooray!

Yay! I am planning a shopping trip because there is no yellow in my stash.

This is a great prompt. I have sooo much yellow in my stash and though I keep trying, it feels difficult to use up very much at a time! Will be interesting to see what we come up with!

Excellent prompt for our next challenge! I am still making my 16 patch in yellow/orange which was begun for the last prompt from Kaja so now to decide whether I also begin another one call the 16 patch a double project.

Love this challenge! Yellow is one of my favourite colours at the moment so I can't wait to get started.
