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.

  9. 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. : )
