Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

In the pink!

It's always fun at the beginning of a new month, to go on a scavenger hunt for scraps and stash in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color - for May, it is pink!

After returning from our trip to Washington, DC, I finally had a chance to dig into some pink.


I also decided to look at some of my WiP boxes to see what I needed to make for those projects.  There, I discovered that I had already made a pink Tiny Rails block, and also one in yellow, which I don't think I shared last month.


Here are the pink bowties I made when it was pink month in 2017.  


Since I need at least 10 bowties in each color, I'll be making more pink ones as the month goes on.  Here are a couple new ones - 


And my main focus for pink this week - my Squared Away blocks for the 2018 RSC Sampler quilt.  I really enjoyed making these, and they went together so easily!


Aren't these looking pretty together?


Thanks, Mari and Angela, for planning this year's sampler and sharing all the info for making the monthly blocks!

  4. Your squared away blocks are lovely, as are all the others. I have some projects too, started last year and still in progress but my trouble is that I don't know which I did last year, and which this!
