Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I am just back from a wonderful vacation at quilt camp. I am starting to unpack all the projects that I took along, but it is a real mess in my sewing room at the moment! Order will hopefully be restored today.
These are the 3" pink spool blocks and 2.25" Alamo Star blocks that I sewed at camp.
I really enjoy sewing with pink, because there is such a wide range to play with, from the pastel pinks, to orangey pinks, to the deep reddish pinks. February has been a short month and I didn't get all the pink blocks sewn that I had cut, so you'll likely see a few more stragglers  next Saturday. I wonder what the colour will be for March?!?
Hop over to SoScrappy to see more pink projects.

Your spools are wonderful - and I agree - PINK is wonderful to work with!

WOW, you got the pink spools down! So pretty. Mine are BIG pink spools (I'm doing all my scrap challenge blocks 8"--I know, I'm so boring/predictable! HA).

I'm wondering what March will bring.I can't wait to find out so I can start going thru my scraps again. Lovely spools and those friendship stars are tiny.

You do have such a nice selection of pinks! I'm putting mine away and looking forward to a new color.

Hey, the month isn't over already, is it? You are doing great, as far as I can tell. What a range of pinks you have. I have next to no pinks--oh, I lied. I do have quite a few CW repro pinks, but they are in a box for a specific "someday" project, so I don't see them regularly. : )

Spools and stars sound perfect for projects for quilt camp. Looking forward to a new colour next month - green perhaps?

Lisa said...

You're really working small with those blocks aren't you? Very impressive.

Welcome home from quilt camp..thought it was about that time of the year!!Love the pink spools. We are making spools for our block of the month for Feb. I think next to blue, pink is my favorite colour. Getting caught up on things in my sewing room too. That's where I will be today!

Love all your pink spool blocks and those cute Alamo stars.. you did well with your pink scraps....I agree a great cheery colour to work with.... I wonder what the March colour will be too...Green or purple perhaps... or then again could it be yellow? LOL...
