Pretty in Pink....

I swapped work days with Greg so I could have some quality me time in the sewing room today to get some things moved forward and done. So far it has been almost two hours of pure fun!

I have to thank Moneik for sending me some wonderful pink fabrics to play with this month.

They have been put right to use today to make some churn dash blocks. I needed 6 of them for my 12 this month but was so cutting happy I have 7!

I guess it can go in the sampler. I have five blocks for the RSC Sampler completed in pink and it looks like there will be one more released sometime this week to finish up the pinks.

I also cut some 2.5 inch squares and made a 16 patch block...which will turn into a star block like last year. I loved how it came out and since it was gifted to Papa Andy I think I'll make another one this year. I also did a couple of nine patches using 2.5 inch strips.  I also have plans to squeeze one more new block in over the next few hours and a few more of the nine patches.

I'd love to have all my Kaleidoscope quilt cut out to play with on the floor to figure out how I want it to look for tomorrow. I need to cut 120 or 148 of my 45 degree angle triangles so I can do that. I have all the other shapes cut out and ready to play.

The plans are also to trim up all the Hugs and Kisses blocks and start putting that together. I think  I have enough peels for the border I am thinking of, so hopefully I'll have most of that together later tonight too. I'm thinking instead of cooking dinner (much needed sewing time) I'll head out to dinner with hubby tonight before picking up the kids from Grandma. Don't worry Mom - I'll have my sewing room turned into a guest room for March 3rd when you arrive!

Head on over to check out all the other scrappy pink projects being linked up today for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I have a lot of pinks (I have 2 granddaughters, after all ha!) ... I'll be happy to share any/as much of it as you'd like. I don't do scrappy, so I'll be happy to share!! ;-)
