More Pink Scraps

Not a lot of pink scrappy playtime this week as I was focused on another project.  Some of these blocks were made earlier in the month, but I didn't have the opportunity to post them until today.

Four Corners and Broken Dishes, two of the Rainbow Sampler blocks for February. I really got a kick out of doing the Broken Dishes block with some batik scraps - I could see doing an entire quilt of batik Broken Dishes!

Two pink 16 patch blocks.  I'll be accumulating 16 patches over the year and assembling them with secondary blocks for lots of scrappy fun.

Ditto with the liberated/maverick star blocks.  Just enjoying making them for now and I'll come up with a plan at the end of the year.

My goal for today is to assemble a pink Carpenter's Wheel.  I have the HSTs already cut and organized, so it's just a matter of stitching and admiring.

On the other hand, I've already seen a bunch of wonderful pink inspiration over at Angela's blog - it will be hard to stay focused when my fingers are wanting to play with new creative ideas!

  1. Great blocks. I think I need to do the 16 patch blocks again this year....they are just so versatile. Have fun sewing today.

  3. All your pinks are lovely--especially like those 16-patchers! Didn't join in this year as I have too, too many WIPS...from last year's months; also am doing some Project Life scrapbooking as well as finally (!!) scrapping our 1989 trip to Germany!! Playing catch up with papers, photos, fabric and ephemera...hugs, Julierose

  6. I love the broken dishes block. I can't believe I have never made one. Wonky stars are fun to do, so liberating, yours look great.

  10. I think the Maverick Stars are a lot of fun and a quick and easy use of scraps.

  11. Stay the course! You have a great collection of blocks going. It is oh so easy to start too many new projects and then loose track of the old.
