RSC May - a start


A new month, a new colour. Angela has chosen pink and rose pink for us this month.  I made two churn dashes,




and two crumb blocks.


I have a lot of strips and crumbs in these colours, but not a lot of larger pieces to make hst for my churn dashes, so it'll be an interesting month.  I'll have to be creative, or make tiny churn dashes!

I sewed  those yellow crumb blocks from last month together, adding white sashing and borders.


I need to add more borders to make it a bit bigger, and found a kind of caramel coloured solid to use for a first narrow border, but the only large yellowy pieces I have in my stash are chickens........



or oranges.........



This will be donated for a child's comfort quilt, so either pattern will work,  I like the chickens, they're fun, and have a similar mix of yellows, golds and oranges as the scrappy blocks, but I'm not absolutely convinced. It looks like a trip to Spotlight this week to see if I can find something that works better.

Linking with So Scrappy, pop over and have a look at all the projects that have everyone in the pink this week!

  1. Great start on your pink scraps. Love the yellow quilt and I think the chickens would be cute for a kids quilt.

    1. I'm usually so slow starting my RSC blocks, it's good to have a bit done at the beginning. The chickens are so cute, aren't they? Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I think either of those border options work, but have fun shopping for something new and different!!

    1. I haven't been shopping for fabric for ages, it's always fun to look, and I'll probably come home with nothing and use the chickens anyway :)

  3. Wise choice with the chickens, they do look fun! It will be a super quilt and the yellow blocks look wonderful together.

    1. I'm enjoying digging through my pinks for this month's blocks. Thanks for the offer, I'll keep it in mind. I found a few squares I'd put 'elsewhere' for another project, so they might get me through.
