Disappearing Pink Scraps

The color for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge is pink.  I didn't find a lot of pink scraps in my stash, but I managed to use them in creative ways (I think).  I'm not finished working on my round of RSC projects, but the scraps have decreased to the point where I may have to make some new ones!

I completed two Windblown Wishes blocks this afternoon.  Pink wraps up all the blocks I plan to make for this quilt, so the next step is getting a flimsy assembled.  Maybe that will happen by the end of the year?

All kinds of random scraps got turned into pinwheel blocks.  I've accumulated quite a stack of pinwheel blocks, but I'm going to keep making them through the end of this year's RSC.  I do have a plan for them, but I'm not ready to start assembling them yet.

The scant amount of pink scraps led me to try strip piecing a pink 49-patch block.  I used Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World piecing technique, but modified it for my needs.  I think this might be my favorite 49-patch block so far!  Since these are only 7" blocks, I'll be making more of them for next year's RSC.

  3. Love those pink prints and pink projects. Especially the 49-patch!
    My stash is kinda scrappy. I use what I want, when I want to use it. I still have some fabric I hesitate to cut, but as I grow older, I'm beginning to cut it up, too.

  5. Pretty pink scraps and blocks! What a good idea to keep making pinwheel blocks and let them pile up for awhile!

  6. I think it is funny when we have to 'make' scraps!!! That is what I have had to do for 2 years for the most part as when I moved from NY to FL I gave away all my scraps--so have had to cut strips from larger pieces of cloth to get scraps!!! your blocks look good--nice pink fabrics-
    enjoy the moments, di
