In the pink

This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour is pink, and I don't really like pink.  I got out my scraps and looked with dismay at them all.  I just didn't have a clue what to do with them.  After leaving them on the side for a couple of days, ideas slowly began to trickle through.

The first thing I did was to cut strips from four fabrics and join them, by adding some white, I came up with this.
This is big enough for a baby quilt or lap quilt, all I need to do is find some backing fabric.  I am thinking of a pink gingham and to bring the back over for the binding.  For the moment, I shall be putting to one side and thinking about what to do with the rest of the pink I have.

Gingham is so fresh and pretty and will make a lovely backing for your pretty quilt.

The pink is so delicate and feminine. I like what you've done with the different fabrics.

Pink may not be your favorite, but some little girl would love to have that beautiful quilt. It looks like there are some nice spaces for fun quilting in the empty spaces.

You should be thrilled with this. I find pink tricky too but you've really pulled this off.
