Good golly, it's the end of the month already! Okay, it's really close. I'm stunned that it went so quickly. But look what we got in May-- roses!
Those will lift anyone's spirits, won't they? Yellow ones are my favorite, but pink is also quite festive. And now that the rain hasn't been beating them down, these actually have some petals left on them!
Today I'm rounding up the pink RSC projects for May. I love pink and use it all the time, so I had a lot of fun with this month's projects. First up are the patchwork scrap stars:
These are super-happy looking, aren't they? Yes, the star on the left is orange, but doesn't it look good with those pinks? I didn't realize I had so many different pink prints, and some of those have been hanging around here for years. It's good to see them being used.
Then there are the 9-patches for this month:
How do you like that "clothesline?" I just wanted some pretty pictures with the pink geranium. I'm going to call these "hollow 9-patches" from now on. I think that's a better name than "9-patches with white centers" and it's a good description of the blocks. I got eleven 9-patches this month, which brings my total to 68.
And now to the giveaway! As I am every month this year, I am giving away the pink scraps remaining in my bin after I finish the RSC projects. Nothing wrong with any of them; I'm just tired of looking at them. Since I love pink, I had a lot of pink scraps to start with, so there is a nice selection this month:
This month there are the pink scraps, a handful of both 2-inch and 1-1/2 inch squares, and about 50 1-1/2 by 9-1/2 inch pink strips. The strips are what's left from some sashing that I cut wrong when I was making a quilt several years ago. I cut every piece of sashing for an extra-long twin the wrong size, so I've been using these pieces up for years and now I'm just done with them. But I'll bet someone out there can think of something creative to do with all those pieces. The package is finished off with the pink/ red fat quarter in the center of the picture, only because I can't decide if it's pink or red.
The giveaway is now closed! Thanks everyone!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and don't forget to give thanks for those who gave their lives for our country and our freedom. It's not all about the burgers!
