Last Saturday in Pink

This is the last scrappy Saturday in Pink and I wanted to do a recap. Thanks Soscrappy for hosting this challenge. I am having fun playing with colors each month.

This month I have finished the top of the pink x string quilt from last year. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter but I put a sashing on the side last year and realized when I was done that the blocks would not make an X anymore. Oops.

Three more of the scrappy pinwheel blocks. The pattern is from Kim Brackett's book Scrap Basket Surprise. This is a picture of all of them so far.
Some are from the blocks I won a couple years ago from my guild BOM that didn't make it into the quilt I made from them. It can be found here.

Twelve more of the Birds in the Air blocks...I really need to make two more of the red ones so I'll have 12 of each.

This pattern is from Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts by Jennifer Chiaverini.

I could not sleep Thursday night so instead of tossing and turning, I got up and cut some fabrics. I cut the strips of pinks into 2 inch squares and some into 2.5 strips for a scrappy binding for the pink quilt above.

Then I had to make a couple of birthday cards to send up to Vermont. My niece and SIL have birthdays right around Em's... one is the 4th - when my niece turns 17 and the other is the 9th. Emily will turn 3 years old the 7th... she didn't want to share her birthday I guess!
These are in the mail and hopefully will arrive in time.

Go on over to SoScrappy and see what others are doing on this pink challenge

You have had a busy pink month, they all look so good. The bird in the air blocks are going to make a lovely quilt at the end of the year

I really like your pink x string quilt! So pretty! I recently found Soscrappy's Rainbow Scrap Challenge and have been having a good time playing with my pink scraps, though they're not quite ready for a post yet. Your cards are very pretty, too!

Kate said...

Great projects! Your scarppy pink quilt is very pretty and I really like all the different colors you've used in the Birds in the Air blocks.

Wow, you really have been busy, love the pink string quilt. The Scrap basket surprise book is great, easy to want to make all the quilts in there.

So many great projects going on! Thanks for sharing the sources for your patterns, so helpful when trying to figure out where to find patterns for all the great projects.

You have had a great pink month. So nice to finish off a quilt top. Then you have a some other great blocks coming alone. I love the Birds in the air blocks. Maybe for neutral you can still do more including your few red ons.

You have quite a lot going on with your pink scraps last month. Love them all!!
I have SBS book, maybe I should look in there for some inspiration too ;)

You have been busy - it is great to see all of the pink projects laid out like that. They all look really, really nice.
