I'm kinda sorry to see the end of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge month o' pink! It's been fun looking for pink houses and sewing through the pink scraps. Unfortunately, I was unable to go hunting for this week's pink house - we're off on a wee trip and there was just no time before leaving.
I do have a house to share with you, although you'll have to use your imagination and maybe visualize "Barbie Pink".
This house is located on a quiet New Orleans street and reflects the dreams of its owner, who poured lots of sweat equity into creating her own Barbie Dream House.
This week's house block is inspired by my own "vintage" fabrics - some Marsha McCloskey Staples and Robin Pandolph fat quarters that have been marinating in my stash for waaaay too long!
All the pink house blocks together. I can't wait to see what color houses I'll be scouting next month!
Last, but not least, the final batch of spool blocks a la Bonnie Hunter.
That wraps up my pink Rainbow Scrap Challenge entries. I'll be sharing my stuff over at Angela's blog along with all the other pink scrappers - do take a look and get a dose of happy from all that pink!

Phunny Phorty Phellows are a group of Carnival enthusiasts who celebrate Twelfth Night by masking (costuming) and riding the St. Charles streetcar to usher in the season.
So what does all this have to do with quilting? Not much really - only that I had a King Cake-fueled afternoon of sewing and have a finished Rainbow Scrap Challenge project to show for it!

Today is the first link-up day for the 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I enjoyed this challenge a great deal last year so it was easy to plan on participating again. Although I've been admiring and thinking about making a number of different blocks/quilts for the challenge, for now I'm keeping things simple. I still have to make quilts from last year's RSC blocks, and that's a priority for the next several weeks (months?!).
