In the Pink

Sheesh! I'm not doing very well at posting lately. Part of it is because I haven't quite wrapped my head around the fact that I'm only making blocks at the moment. It seems like there ought to be a quilt in progress. So far I'm making blocks but without a specific plan for their use. I have vague ideas but no more than that yet. It's just kind of a weird place for me to be. I mean, I'm used to making blocks for my Parts Department but they have nearly always been small blocks out of small scraps. Now I'm making 12" blocks out of remnants and smaller blocks out of the smaller scraps!

Here are the most recent blocks featuring the color of the month, pink.



I've also been making 12" Ohio Stars in other colors:



I made a few more in January's color too, blue.



During this past week it has occurred to me that I could use these RSC blocks to create the twin size quilts I want to make for my twin granddaughters. That alters my original scheme for their quilts but I have to confess I find this new idea more appealing than the original plan. We'll just have to see how things develop!

Do take time to check out what the other quilt makers are doing with this challenge. Click over to So Scrappy's blog to see who else is involved.

All of these blocks are beautiful! The Ohio stars always look so cheerful, and pink and green are my favorites together. Looking great!

Ohio stars are one of my favorite blocks. I love the color combination of bright pink and lime green. You have a good selection of blocks for a rainbow quilt.

Gosh it is lovely to see your Ohio Stars! It's been years since I made this block and you have now got me thinking about making them again!!

Love the pink and green - and like the new plan for twin quilts (it really helps to have a background plan with RSC - at least for me).

Woohoo, love the pink blocks. You are definitely in the pink and on a roll with the blocks.
