Scrappy Saturday - Pink

It's Saturday... the day to review my efforts for the  Rainbow Challenge. My participation seems to have evolved into a predictable pattern. When the colour of the month is announced, I search through my UFO's to see if I could entice myself to work on something already started (blue UFO);  the next week I dig out some small scraps and sew up a few crumb blocks (green blocks);  next I sew a word or two for my virtues quilt (purple virtues) and if there is time left I work with the colour in any little project that suits my fancy (red hearts).
This month is PINK.   It's one of my favorite colours, but back in January I wrote a blogpost about being "pinked out" when I was working on the last mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter (click here to read that). So, to start the pink month, I searched for that mystery project in the UFO closet...hey, does anyone remember Fibber McGee or are y'all too young to know what that means about my closet??
I found the box with the billions of pink pieces and I plan to work on them until I finish that step! I need 120 of these strips of 5 HST's...I have made 50 so far, so that's only 70 more to go.

Most people wouldn't be able to find enough unfinished projects for a rainbow UFO of the month challenge, but you have been doing an amazing job of finding something each month. Good luck with the pink HSTs, they will be done before you know it!

LOL, well, at least you're STARTING with a UFO :) Good luck on sticking to it--I know it's hard!

I found it hard to be motivated with pink this month, but it will feel good to get it done. All those HST's look amazing. Wishing you all the best to get it done
