Continuing to look for rainbow-hued houses as part of my New Orleans House Project. We've finally had some sunny weather, so I was able to snap a picture or two while out and about this morning!
Both of these lovely pink homes are located in an area of New Orleans known as "Uptown". It's a posh neighborhood located not far from the famous St. Charles Avenue streetcar line.
And here's this week's scrappy pink house. I was going for a softer, more old-fashioned look.
Strictly speaking, this does not conform to this month's color, although it does contain a fair amount of pink. However, the completion of this quilt WAS inspired by last year's RSC month of brown scrappiness. The nine patch blocks are from a block swap I participated in several years ago. I added the snowball blocks during last year's RSC and I finally got around to putting on the finishing border this week. The theme of the block swap was to depict your favorite chocolate candy!
Wrapping things up today with some of this week's spool leader-enders. Making these is kind of like eating potato chips - hard to stop at just one!
Hope everyone has had a great pink week. I'll be sorry to leave pink behind after next week, but's it's always fun to see what the next color challenge brings!
