Crazy Ladies Of The Lake Are In The Pink

Ladies of the Lake
10 inch blocks

I use scraps from the 2.5 inch box for the outside HSTs and chunk scraps for the six inch center HST.   I found a bag of some 6.5 HST halves leftover from a basket quilt I made long ago and used some of them for the centers. 

I now have 37 blocks and I like big quilts so have lots more to make. This RSC project will continue into next year. 

That pink/orange block may not make the cut. I'll probably change out the outside HSTs to be red/orange instead of light pink/orange.

Love the Lady of the Lake blocks except maybe the pink/orange.
Look like great fun!

So vibrant - I agree that the lighter one doesn't quite fit in with the others.

love the colors and graphics! Blue and pink what a great combo.

I adore those blocks! If you keep the blue/pink colors (cool) throughout, then a single warm block (that orangey one) might provide a delightful spark when sitting among its friends!

Monica said...

These are sooo nice, Cathy. A big quilt will be spectacular!

Busy and bright. What a delight!!

Super blocks! Loving the contrasts of the hot pink and blues. I can see why you are hesitating about the last block but don't take it apart, just make a couple more in similar colour selections because it works.

Cathy, you get sooo many quilts done you just dazzle us!!! Besides the ones earmarked for family, do you donate/gift all the others? Or are you stockpiling?

Zounds. I love the turquoise polka dot. Perfect pairing for hot pink.

Janie said...

Pink, turquoise, orange make vibrant ladies.
I agree, 'my kinda gals'.

Wow! Those are awesome and bright blocks.

Kaja said...

I like the pink and orange block -maybe if it doesn't belong with these others it could have a quilt of its own...

All the colors mix so well, even the orange gives nice variety. A bright and cheerful project.
