Pink


Broken Wheels in pink. 
I'm in two different Birthday Clubs and Broken Wheels is my block of choice - maker's colors of choice on a neutral background.  If I also make 2 blocks each month in RSC colors I should have enough blocks for a large quilt by year end. 


36 Little Lozenges (Bitter Pills)
These finish at 2 x 4.5


I've been making them since last year and finally decided to take count.  I have 4 piles of 100 (50 with black corners and 50 with white corners)  and one pile of 80 and a few extras to boot.  I think that should be enough for a 50 x 70 quilt (if I calculated correctly  for a layout 25 x 18). 

In case you haven't seen it...I finished my Wild Little Monkey quilt - one of last year's RSC projects. 

Got Scraps?
Make something.  Then show us what you've done with them each ScrapHappy Saturday.

Very nice and great use of those pinks. I don't have much pink left after using so much this month. I didn't have much to start with though. And I'm surprised yellow is the color. I'm going to have to dig deep for yellow pieces.

Nice broken wheels blocks, but all those lozenges! Now to turn them into something fun!

You have really been industrious--I just cannot get into the swing of things this year; I think all this snow has gotten to me (and more expected tonight-through tomorrow!! ugh!!) anyway...your pinks are lovely. I pulled my scanty supply of yellows--all older fabric pieces and am not happy with them--but will press on (hahaha) and see what pops out. I may have to pair them with blue and/or pinks...I think I'm ion the doldrums...hugs, Julierose

I'm very curious to see how that Bitter Pills quilt turns out. Meanwhile, I LOVE your color choice for the binding on the Wild Little Monkeys!

The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed. See the link below for more info.

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
