Scrap Happy Saturday pink overview & FNSI

I am in the pink, that is for sure.

I whipped up 2 more for Crossroads.

I have a bunch more 4 patches made. I have been turning those 4 patches into these blocks.

I have done these cool swirlygig pinwheel looking ones too. I like this block, quick and simple too.

Using different sizes, I made up a bunch of these 9 patches with neutral in the centers. They will make 2 totally different quilts. To make sure they really look different that is why I chose to use 2 different sizes too.

This is a pic of the entire design wall, it is really PINK! These are the pieces to 6 of the quilts I am making in this challenge. Not all the quilts will have all the colors in them though.
Not everything is up here yet, still have a bunch sitting at the machine waiting to be fed through the feed dogs.
Still have the last 3 swirlygig blocks, for a total of 5 and all these 4 patch bowties too. Notice the bowties went to the floor on the board.
Friday night it was spent sewing the last of the 4 patches, and working on 4-patch bow tie blocks I think I managed to finish another 12 more after all those 4 patch pieces. Then I cut out the rest of those swirlygig ones and called it a night. This week has wore me out. I might have some 4 patches leftover when I am done, I am not sure but we will see.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I also started to do a paper piecing block.............well I did say started, and not finished.
Do you see where that ripper is pointing?????? There is NO fabric right there...........urgh! That was as far as I went.

I am linking up with Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Also with FNSI at Heidi's.
What have you been up to???

Wow! You have a lot of pink going on. I like the star near the top a lot, and the swirly nine patches too. Enjoy your weekend. Hope it gives you time to wind down from the work week.

Fantastic! Your design wall looks like so much fun. I love the 4 patch bowties and the swirly block, and well, all of the blocks look just great. So many good ideas!

Dee said...

So are you making 6 different pink quilts? Or maybe I read that wrong. As usual, you have a lot of different projects going on at once. You must be the queen of multi-tasking!

Edith said...

My goodness, Ann Marie, you have sewn a lot of pink blocks this month, all looking very pretty.

Lots of pink goodness in your post! What fun...

Love all the pink blocks. Such a fun wall.
Tear that pp block out back to the missing fabric spot, put in a piece like it belongs there and resew it. What mistake??? ;)

Sheila said...

I love ALL your pink projects. Good plan to have enough rainbow blocks pieced to make 6 quilts this year! I like it!

Deb said...

My goodness! You have so many pretty pink projects in the works. I love the 4 patch bow ties. Great idea.
