It’s Very Pink

Remember the block of the month frenzy? ( here) One block came back home with me when I won the 10 pink ones. Now ten doesn’t make a quilt. Nine or twelve would. I didn’t have enough variety in pink fabrics to add two blocks. And one block had been assembled differently than the BOM plan and had to be taken apart anyway. So it became cornerstones in the border.

And the fifth four-patch block will probably end up in a pieced back. I have a perfect backing piece, except it is only a one-yard cut. so some piecing is in my future.

Its destination is the guild’s Comforting Quilts. The size is right for either wheelchair lap quilt or baby quilt. I see it as a baby quilt, but they will send it where they need it most.

Lots of scraps here, other peoples’ scraps along with mine, so I’m linking with Oh Scrap! (I’ve been neglecting that one recently, at least linking. It is fun to read whether or not I’ve added something.) And because it could be a baby quilt, I’ll like with Let’s Make Baby Quilts.  Buttons for each are in the sidebar.

ETA link to Scraphappy Saturday. Even though I made only one of the blocks, the quilt is very scrappy and very pink, the color of the month.

    I have been known to use 10 blocks in a quilt by setting them on-point (3-4-3).

    That’s a really pretty wee quilt and I’m sure it will find a very welcome home. Great job on using the blocks you won.
