Scrappy Saturday

It's pink month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Pink is one of my favourite colours and I was happy to play with the pink scrap bin this week. 
I made four blocks for my version of the Squared Away sampler quilt. This is block pattern #5 and the pattern is called Baton Rouge Square. I changed the orientation of some of the HST blocks around the centre, just because I like how the blocks looked that way. I am surprised at how the colour is so off in this photo. Some of the fabrics look red and they really are dark pink.

Here are my 20 blocks for the sampler in the colours we have worked with so far this year... purple, blue, green, pink and yellow. 
My blocks are 5" and use up some of my smallest scraps.

The darker corners are a really nice change to your block. It looks great amongst all the others. Such a fun size to work with!

5 inch blocks require tiny hsts!! You go small girlfriend. I like the contrast pinky blocks a lot.

the whole pieced block is only 5 in???? holy cow. I'd like to see your finger or hand or something next to the blocks to give us perspective. How amazing they are together. And it's hard to sew tiny blocks and keep them exact! LeeAnna

How do you DO that?!? Only five inches - wow! The blocks are amazing. I love your Baton Rouge block - perfect for pink, LOL.

Great looking sampler so far. And I like the size of the blocks. :)

Very pretty pink blocks. I was considering rotating some of the HSTs as you've done. I like how your changes worked out.

Great blocks and great idea to have the bloxkb be different for each color!
